Mexican Grand Prix: Rosberg beats Hamilton to yet another pole

Nico Rosberg claimed his 4th pole position in succession and his 5th of the season till date as the German beat teammate Lewis Hamilton to first place on the grid for tomorrow's Mexican Grand Prix. Hamilton meanwhile was quick enough to complete a thirteenth front row lockout of the season for the Silver Arrows. Sebastian Vettel in the Ferrari was third quickest.

A delighted Rosberg shared after his excellent qualifying run, "I'm quite pleased with the first half of the weekend. I have to thank my engineers because we nailed the setup and I felt great in the car. I did a pretty cool lap in Q3, which I wasn't able to improve on the second run. But tomorrow is the day and it will be a great battle for the win between the top five - especially as we didn't have much time to practice long runs. Sebastian and the two Red Bulls look strong but I'm very confident that our car is the best prepared for the circumstances."
