Valtteri Bottas was the fastest driver in Q3 on Saturday in Abu Dhabi, with the Finnish driver securing pole position for the final race of the season. Lewis Hamilton was just a tenth of a second behind him, leaving the Red Bull and Ferrari drivers to split the second and third row of the grids between them.
Nico Hülkenberg, both Force India drivers and Felipe Massa rounded out the top ten. Fernando Alonso just missed the cut for the top ten shoot-out and had to settle for 11th place. Further back, both the Toro Rosso drivers struggled for pace and dropped out in Q1, with Brendon Hartley the slowest driver in the field. He had an engine penalty lined up anyway, though.
The poor qualifying result puts the pressure on Toro Rosso, however, in one of the only championship battles left - unless they get a good result in the race, they'll drop behind Renault and lose their sixth place in the standings.
