Sebastian Vettel reminded his Formula One rivals that Red Bull remains the team to beat in the championship after taking pole position for the Hungarian Grand Prix.

The F1 leader's crew worked on his car through the night and the payoff was immediate as he stormed to a leading time of 1 minute, 19.815 seconds around the Hungaroring circuit on his last flying lap.

McLaren took advantage of mixed weather conditions to qualify second and third as Lewis Hamilton was within two-tenths of the German leader in front of teammate Jenson Button.

Ferrari pair Felipe Massa and Fernando Alonso followed while Mark Webber of Red Bull will start a disappointing sixth.
