4:04 pm on 12 June 2011

The defending world champion Sebastian Vettel claimed his sixth pole position in seven races this year when he topped the times in qualifying for Monday morning's Canadian Grand Prix.

The 23-year-old German, in his Red Bull car repaired after a crash into the 'wall of champions' on Saturday, clocked a best lap of one minute and 13.014 seconds.

The two Ferraris of Spaniard Fernando Alonso and Brazilian Felipe Massa were second and third, the two-time champion just squeezing ahead of his teammate in the closing seconds.

Despite struggling once again with his Kinetic Energy Regeneration System (KERS), Australian Mark Webber qualified fourth in the second Red Bull with McLaren's Lewis Hamilton, the 2008 champion, taking fifth ahead of Mercedes' Nico Rosberg.
