Sebastian Vettel took his 12th pole position of the season at Suzuka with a lap time 1:30.466s, beating Jenson Button by just 0.009 seconds. Lewis Hamilton, quickest up until then, was slightly too late on his second run and was unable to improve on his 1:30.617 lap time, ending up in third ahead of the Ferraris of Felipe Massa and Fernando Alonso, Mark Webber could only manage sixth in the other Red Bull, despite setting the fastest sector one time.

Michael Schumacher will line up seventh on the Grid for tommorow’s Japanese Grand Prix, despite not stetting a time in Q3 to save tyres. Renault took the same strategy, with Bruno Senna completing row 4 and Vitaly Petrov staying ahead of local hero Kamui Kobayashi.
