It was Sebastian Vettel Saturday, as the German gave Ferrari their first pole of the season with a dominating performance through the start of Free Practice 3 (FP3) to the final session of qualifying ending Mercedes' dominance. It was also the first time since the Austrian Grand Prix last season that a Silver Arrows car was not on pole.

The Finger Boy is Back! Sebastian Vettel made it a clean sweep as he topped all three sessions of qualifying to take his first pole since the 2013 Brazilian Grand Prix to end Mercedes' dominance. The Ferrari driver put in a tremendous drive and his final lap was over half a second faster than second placed Daniel Ricciardo and over seven-tenths ahead of his teammate Kimi Raikkonen in third.
The surprise of the day was Mercedes' lack of pace, the team is completely flummoxed as to the reason for the sudden drop in performance with Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg starting fifth and sixth respectively, with the latter over 1.5 seconds behind the lead Ferrari.
Daniil Kvyat continued his good form to finish in fourth just ahead of the two Silver Arrows cars, and with Red Bull and Ferrari demonstrating good long run pace it should be a good race under the lights on Sunday.
Jos Verstappen continues to impress in his debut season, with yet another top 10 finish, the young rookie will hope to have a clean race tomorrow after some difficult races despite impressing during qualifying. McLaren-Honda had a better time at the track after struggling in the previous two races with both Fernando Alonso and Jenson Button making it into Q2. The duo will start 12th and 15th respectively.
The start is crucial at the Marina Bay Street Circuit with the lack of overtaking opportunities and the drivers on the front rows will be mindful, after Kimi Raikkonen struggled off the line, after qualifying on the front row at Monza.
