In a pulsating qualifying, Sebastian Vettel has secured pole position for the Malaysian Grand Prix beating Lewis Hamilton by the narrowest of margins.

The McLaren man was just one-tenth slower than Vettel's pole-setting time of 01:34.870 minutes while Vettel's team-mate Mark Webber had to settle for third on the grid after qualifying two-tenths behind Hamilton.
