Rosberg whoops with delight as he celebrates his first pole of the season - and in fine style, too, with two superb laps, both of which would have given him pole. Hamilton second on the grid, but that's a big statement from Rosberg: the cat has been introduced to the pigeons.


Hamilton is SLOWER in his second flying lap than his first! He's missed out pole, and Vettel is slower too - Rosberg gets the message that he's on pole, backs off, and still nails it just seven hundredths off his first flying lap time.


Hamilton is a tenth down on Rosberg's best in his first sector - this is not going to happen from the looks of it...


All the big names back out for their second flying laps just now - Raikkonen the first of them, sitting fifth at the moment. Hamilton not far behind...


1:24.681 for Rosberg, 1:24.948 for Hamilton - a huge quarter of a second margin to make up, though Hamilton had a very poor opening sector from the look of the splits.


...and Nico Rosberg trumps Hamilton by almost a third of a second!


Hamilton straight in with a 1:24.98....


Q3 is now under way, and Hamilton and Rosberg are both straight out onito the track. Raikkonen is also out there.


The McLarens were over a second adrift of 10th place, incidentally. Rosberg retained top spot, Lewis Hamilton was second fastest in Q2 in the end.


All the cars are now speeding round to record their final flying laps - and Alonso is pushed down to 13th! The Spanish hero will not make Q3, while McLaren team-mate Jenson Button was one place worse.


Every single car in the pits at the moment, putting on new tyres ahead of the last flying lap of Q2.


With six minutes left of Q2, Rosberg is fastest and Hamilton second - the biggest news though is that Fernando Alonso, a god in these parts, is 11th and needs something impressive just to make Q3.
