The Mercedes team completed their 12th front row lockout of the season when Nico Rosberg took pole position ahead of Lewis Hamilton at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
Hamilton was quickest in the first two practice sessions, but his German teammate stepped it up when it mattered most and snatched pole from his teammate.
Like in the previous Grand Prix in Brazil, it was the Williams cars that pushed Mercedes, and were yet again close to causing an upset.
The Red Bull drivers of Daniel Ricciardo and Sebastian Vettel qualified on the third row, but were later disqualified for an illegal front wing and will now start the race from the back of the grid.
This moves Toro Rosso's Daniil Kvyat up to fifth and McLaren's Jenson Button to sixth ahead of the two Ferrari's.
