Lewis Hamilton dominated qualifying for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix on Saturday as he cruised to pole position for McLaren.

Last years winner at the Yas Marina circuit, secured his sixth pole this year and the 25th of his career on a circuit that he clearly enjoys, and represents a perfect opportunity to break Vettel’s winning run of 4 consecutive wins.

Hamilton finished three-tenths of a second clear of his nearest challenger, Mark Webber of Red Bull, who will share the front row with him for Sunday’s 55-laps race at the 5.554km circuit. Defending champion and series leader Vettel was third, however late reprisals will see the German start from the back of the grid, with Pastor Maldonado of Williams assuming third.
