Vettel Breaks Record in Brazilian Grand Prix

Sebastian Vettel, born on July 03, 1987 is a German "Formula One" racing driver and is currently driving for Red Bull Racing. Vettel broke the all-time record for pole positions in a season as he beat Red Bull team-mate Mark Webber at the Brazilian Grand Prix, on Saturday.

The world champion topped Q2 then absolutely dominated Q3. Vettel's initial 1m12.268s effort put him a quarter of a second clear of the pack, and he then improved to 1m11.918s with his final attempt.

Webber's best was 0.181secs slower than Vettel's but still sufficient to beat Jenson Button, who lines up third ahead of McLaren team-mate Lewis Hamilton. Ferrari's Fernando Alonso qualified fifth ahead of Mercedes GP's Nico Rosberg, with Ferrari's Felipe Massa lining up seventh for his home race ahead of Force India's Adrian Sutil. Another Brazilian, Bruno Senna, qualified ninth for Renault, with Michael Schumacher completing the top 10 in his Mercedes.

Vettel's 15th pole beats the previous best for a season set by Nigel Mansell in 1992.
