14:03 

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.

14:02 

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.

14:00 

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

13:59 

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...

13:56 

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.

13:56 

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

13:55 

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

13:50 

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

13:45 

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.

13:40 

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.

13:35 

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

13:30 

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.
