Vettel edges team-mate Webber for Euro pole

9:48 am on 26 June 2011

German Formula One champion Sebastian Vettel will start from pole position in the European Grand Prix after the Red Bull driver was fastest in qualifying in Valencia.

The 23-year-old German, who is the runaway leader of this year's drivers' championship, was the only man to clock a lap in less than one minute and 37 seconds as he outpaced his teammate Australian Mark Webber to take his 22nd pole spot.

Webber is the only other driver in this year's eight qualifying sessions to have claimed a pole position start.
