Johannesburg [South Africa], Sept.18 (ANI): Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg posted a stunning qualifying lap to take the pole position at the Marina Bay street circuit for Sunday's Singapore Grand Prix.

The German driver clocked his fastest lap of one minute and 42.584 seconds to finish the qualifying race more than half a second quicker than Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo in second position, Sport24 reported.

World Championship leader Lewis Hamilton, who is currently leading teammate Rosberg by two points, finished third fastest ahead of Red Bull's Max Verstappen.

Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen was fourth followed by four-time world champion and teammate Sebastian Vettel, who started last after his car had an anti-roll bar failure in the Q1 session.(ANI)
