The two-time defending world champion set the pace with a lap of 1 minute,23.168 seconds at the Catalunya Circuit,which was quickly heating up and degrading tires to provide a slippery obstacle for drivers to deal with.

Vettel is coming off his first pole position of the season in Bahrain and is looking for a second straight victory at the first European race of the season.

The German driver led Pastor Maldonado of Williams by under two-tenths of a second,with Kamui Kobayashi of Sauber,teammate Mark Webber and Sergio Perez of Sauber all within half a second of F1’s points leader.
