Australian uses intermediate tyres to good effect

Mark Webber took a brilliant gamble on intermediate tyres to seal pole for the Malaysian Grand Prix.

After a rain-lashed session, the Red Bull driver will be joined by Mercedes' Nico Rosberg on the front row, with Sebastian Vettel third in the second Red Bull. Michael Schumacher (Mercedes, pictured) will start eighth.

Both McLarens and both Ferraris were caught out by the weather and will start outside the top 16.

Unrealistic grid.

The weather mixed things up, even Nick Wirth has become hysterical claiming that 'progress' they made was evidence of a car improving.

What a crock.
