Nico Rosberg claimed his sixth straight pole of the season ahead of Lewis Hamilton to give Mercedes their 15th front row lockout in 2015. The big shock early in the qualifying session was Sebastian Vettel. The Ferrari driver was knocked out in Q1 after a miscommunication saw him abort his final lap, which will now see him start in 16th place.

Kimi Raikkonen took third place ahead of Force India's Sergio Perez, who showed good pace through out the session. Jenson Button missed out entering Q3 for the first time this season by two tenths of a second and Fernando Alonso suffered a tyre puncture at the end of Q1.

Romain Grosjean ended up parking his car on track after encountering problems in the second session - it was his last qualifying session with the Lotus team ahead of his move to Haas Racing next season.

The Silver Arrows cars look favourite to occupy the top two positions barring mechanical problems, despite Ferrari showing promise with their pace during the long runs on Friday. Force India and Red Bull will be in the mix. Vettel could be the driver to watch as he makes his way up the field on a track where overtaking opportunities are at a premium.
