Rosberg conquers pole of the Singapore Grand Prix

Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg took pole position for the Singapore Grand Prix on Saturday with an impressive lap on the Marina Bay street circuit.

Rosberg is two points behind his teammate and drivers’ championship leader Lewis Hamilton, but took the best possible position for a third consecutive victory with a time of 1 minute, 42.584 seconds, with more than half a second of lead over Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo, who will start second.

Hamilton qualified third, ahead of Red Bull’s Max Verstappen.

Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen will start in fifth place, but teammate Sebastian Vettel will start last after his car had a stabilizer bar failure in first qualifying.
