Vettel dominated the race from the beginning and was the force to reckon with for all the other drivers.
Lewis Hamilton finished eight while McLaren teammate Jenson Button had a futile session, taking the 18th position.
Michael Schumacher had a grid penalty against him but the veteran managed to fight his way to the tenth spot.
