Vettel grabs pole at Canadian Grand Prix
Formula One champion Sebastian Vettel chalked up his sixth pole position in seven races at the Canadian Grand Prix today to maintain Red Bull's stranglehold on qualifying.
The 23-year-old German will be joined on the front row by Ferrari's Spanish double world champion Fernando Alonso.
Vettel's 21st career pole, and Red Bull's eighth in succession, also brought him his 12th consecutive front row start.
"Thank you. Thanks for fixing the car on Friday after I stuffed it in the wall," shouted Vettel, who had smashed into the 'Wall of Champions' in Friday practice, over the radio to his jubilant team as he returned to the pits.
Ferrari's Brazilian Felipe Massa and Australian Mark Webber in the other Red Bull will line up together on the second row.
McLaren's Lewis Hamilton, winner of the two of the last three Canadian Grands Prix and on pole in all of them, qualified a disappointing fifth with team mate Jenson Button back in seventh.
