Sebastian Vettel secured his second pole position of the season and 32nd of his career on Saturday when he clocked the fastest time during qualifying for Sunday's Canadian Grand Prix.
 
The 24-year-old Red Bull driver, last year's pole-winner, scorched to the front of the grid in dramatic style with a fastest lap of the Gilles Villenauve circuit in one minute 13.784 seconds.
 
That meant he wound up a third of a second faster than second-placed Briton Lewis Hamilton of McLaren, closely followed by championship leader Spaniard Fernando Alonso of Ferrari, who was third quickest.
 
Australian Mark Webber was fourth fastest in the second Red Bull followed by German Nico Rosberg of Mercedes.
Brazilian Felipe Massa followed in the second Ferrari ahead of Frenchman Romain Grosjean of Lotus, Force India driver Briton Paul Di Resta and German Michael Schmacher in the second Mercedes.
 
Briton Jenson Button's qualifying problems continued as he struggled to keep pace with rival drivers and will start 10th on the grid in the second McLaren.
