Vettel won Japan Grand Prix

Sebastian Vettel won the pole position on Saturday's Japanese Grand Prix and placed in a perfect position to win the world championship on Sunday in Formula One

The German perfect streak extended poles of Red Bull to the 15 races this season, recording a time of 1 minute 30,466 seconds at the Suzuka circuit.

Jenson Button, McLaren, was ranked second to nine milliseconds, followed by his teammate Lewis Hamilton, despite an error that left him on the last lap time.

"It was a great qualifying for us," said Vettel.

"Yesterday I went off the track and damaged the wing and that affected us, but today we take full advantage of the vehicle."

On Friday, Vettel ran off the track and finished last in the first practice session, damaging slightly front of your vehicle.

He later said the incident was a "wake-up call." Vettel takes only one point in Sunday's race, or that Button will not win, to become the youngest driver to achieve a bicampeonato in the history of Formula One

It was the 12th pole of the season for the Teutons, 24, who has won the last two races, both from the position of honor on the grid.

"There was not much difference between Jenson and I," said Vettel. "I want to thank the team and the factory to get another front wing."

Felipe Massa will start fourth in his Ferrari after beating team-mate Fernando Alonso, who started fifth.

The venezuelan driver Pastor Maldonado, Williams, took the 14th position, while Mexico's Sergio Perez, the Sauber team, will start on Sunday from the place 17.

Button was the fastest in three practice sessions and expressed disappointment about not getting his first pole of the season.

"You're always disappointed when you're this close," said the Briton.

"But the weekend was pretty good and came with a good car."

Although it has almost secured the championship on Sunday, the German is not expected to race.

"No matter what you think will or not tomorrow, we still need to go out and focus on a good race," Vettel said.
