Lewis Hamilton will start on pole position with his Mercedes W05 for tomorrows 2014 Malaysian Formula 1 Grand Prix. Hamilton scored his 33rd pole position of his F1 career and the 19th pole for his team Mercedes.
Just like this years first race in Australia the qualifying session started wet. This qualifying session for the 2014 Malaysian F1 Grand Prix was so wet it was delayed by 50 minutes due to heavy rain and standing water.
During Q1 it was still raining. The rain caused difficult driving conditions and was stopped 52 seconds early because of a crash. Markus Ericsson crashed his Caterham in the sidewall of the circuit.
Q2 didn't show much surprises. Unfortunately Williams couldn't get up to speed and were not fast enough to go to Q1.
During Q3 the Sepang circuit was drying up. Although the circuit was getting dryer nobody used intermediate tyres and sticked to the full wet Pirelli tyres.
