Hamilton has been in excellent form coming into the Singapore Grand Prix. Though the practice sessions belonged to Vettel, the Briton rose to the occassion when it mattered the (second) most.
Pastor Maldonado, seen here with his girlfriend prior to proceedings on Saturday, was also powerful and pushed his Williams to the limit.
Red Bull's Vettel would perhaps rue not getting a better view on the starting grid but will take what he has got. Teammate Mark Webber is has the seventh spot.
Sahara Force India has had a good run in Singapore and Paul di Resta ensured a sixth position for himself. Teammate Nico Hulkenberg is five places behind him.
Michael Schumacher clocked the ninth best time and Nico Rosberg in the other Mercedes AMG will be a place behind.
It was a mixed session of sorts for Ferrari. While Fernando Alonso has the fifth spot, Felipe Massa just could not get going and has the 13th place to work his way up from.
