Trulli leads Toyota front row sweep

7:35 am on 26 April 2009

It's a Toyota one-two for the first time on the starting grid for the Bahrain Grand Prix, after the Italian driver Jarno Trulli seized pole position with team-mate Timo Glock qualifying second.

Red Bull's young German Sebastian Vettel, winner in the wet in China last weekend, will start tomorrow's race in third place with championship leader Jenson Button alongside in his Mercedes-powered Brawn GP.

McLaren's world champion Lewis Hamilton qualified fifth.

The biggest disappointment of the afternoon was suffered by Red Bull's Mark Webber, with the Australian unable to get through the first session after being blocked by Force India's Adrian Sutil.

Sutil, who apologised afterwards, was demoted three places to the back row and will start a place behind Webber.
