Singapore Grand Prix 2017 Qualifying Sebastian Vettel takes pole position

LEWIS HAMILTON faces a tall order to retain the lead of the Formula One championship after he qualified a lowly fifth for Sunday's Singapore Grand Prix as his rival Sebastian Vettel stormed to pole position.

Vettel, who trails Hamilton by three points in the title race, fended off the challenge from the rampant Red Bulls of Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo to seal the front spot by one-third of a second.

The Ferrari driver punched the air with delight and celebrated his 49th career pole like a victory.

With overtaking virtually impossible at this 3.2-mile street circuit, he will start the race as the overwhelming favourite to move ahead of Hamilton and return to the summit of the standings.
