Red Bull's Vettel takes pole for Indian GP

Updated: October 29, 2011, 05:41

NEW DELHI(AP) Red Bull driver Sebastian Vettel claimed pole position Saturday for the inaugural Formula One Indian Grand Prix.

Vettel's time of 1 minute, 24.178 seconds around Buddh International Circuit was three tenths of a second faster than McLaren's Lewis Hamilton, who will drop down to fifth as a result of a rules infringement in Friday practice.

Red Bull's Mark Webber was third fastest, ahead of Ferrari's Fernando Alonso and McLaren's Jenson Button.

Ferrari's Felipe Massa qualified seventh despite a heavy crash on the final lap when his right-front suspension broke going over a curb, sending him skidding into a barrier.

Mercedes' Nico Rosberg, Force India's Adrian Sutil and Toro Rosso pair Sebastien Buemi and Jaime Alguersuari completed the top 10.
