Nico Rosberg claimed his first ever pole position at Chinese GP. The german was furious as he was half a second faster at 1:35.121 than second driver on pole, Lewis Hamilton. Michael Schumacher managed third position but due to a gearbox penalty Lewis Hamilton will start from third position making Mercedes duo as front runners. This is also first pole position for Mercedes since 1955. This achievement is possible as a result of Mercedes innovative front wing design. Kimi Raikonnen managed fifth pole position followed by Jensen Button and Mark Webber at sixth and seventh position respectively. Current world champion Sebastian Vettel will start from Eleventh position.
