Englishman Lewis Hamilton has laid down a marker for the rest of the competition by qualifying for the first race of the season in pole position.
He pipped Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo by 0.317, but his illustrious rival and four time champion Sebastian Vettel will start way down in 13th.
Hamilton’s teammate Nico Rosberg took third, while Brazilian Ferrari driver Fernando Alonso will start in fourth.
In a race that will mark the start of a season full of rule changes, Hamilton is delighted he’s shown his mettle early on.
“It’s been an interesting weekend and today has made it so much harder for everyone with the conditions, but I’m really happy for the job the team did,” Hamilton said.
