Istanbul:

Formula One champion Sebastian Vettel will again lead from the front at the Turkish Grand Prix after securing his fourth straight pole position of the season on Saturday.

The Red Bulls will start Sunday's race 1-2 on the grid after teammate Mark Webber posted the second quickest time, with Nico Rosberg carrying over his impressive form in practice to take third spot for Mercedes.

The 23-year-old Vettel showed that he has fully recovered from the crash that hampered his opening rain-hit practice on Friday, and is in a perfect position to aim for a third Grand Prix win of the season.

It was also Vettel's fifth straight pole, as he led from the front to win the season-ending Abu Dhabi race and clinch the F1 title in November.
