Red Bull dominate grid for Turkish grand prix

8:04 am on 8 May 2011

The Formula One world champion Sebastian Vettel has claimed his fifth successive pole position of the season, with Red Bull filling the front two spots on the grid for the Turkish grand prix.

Teamate Mark Webber is second.

It's Red Bull's third Turkish pole in a row and, in a race that has always been won by a driver starting from the first two places, left the champions with high hopes of being third time lucky providing they stay clear of each other.

Vettel and Webber, who was on pole in 2010, were heading for a one-two last year when they collided while fighting for the lead, handing the one-two to McLaren's Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button instead.
