Mercedes’ Nico Rosberg takes pole at Bahrain GP
Question of the Day
SAKHIR, BAHRAIN (AP) - Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg took pole position at the Bahrain Grand Prix on Saturday, finishing ahead of Sebastian Vettel of Red Bull and Fernando Alonso of Ferrari.
It is only the second pole of Rosberg's career but the second in a row for Mercedes. He timed 1:32.330 to finish 0.254 in front of Vettel _ the three-time defending Formula One champion _ and 0.337 ahead of Alonso, who won last week's Chinese Grand Prix.
Rosberg screamed into the radio: "Yes! Come on guys, that's how it's done."
Rosberg's teammate, Lewis Hamilton, was fourth but will start ninth because of a five-grid penalty for a gear box change. Mark Webber of Red Bull, who was fifth but was given a three-grid penalty last week in China, will start seventh.
