  • Nico today took his 29th career pole position – his first at the Marina Bay Street Circuit and seventh of the 2016 season so far.
  • Today’s result marks the 150th pole position for Mercedes- Benz power in Formula One
    Nico and Lewis have now collected a combined total of 58 pole positions as team-mates – more than any other driver pairing in the history of the sport.
  • Both drivers completed a single run in Q1 and Q2, another two runs in Q3, using UltraSoft compound tyres throughout.

Nico Rosberg: That was a fantastic Qualifying for me – especially on my 200th GP weekend. I think this lap is in my top three of all time. I felt totally at one with the car, which is really rare. I was able to push a lot and couldn’t even top that first lap time on my second run. In the past we’ve seen that in Singapore pole is important, so I’m in the best possible position for tomorrow. We know that there a lot of pressure will come from Daniel in the Red Bull, as he will start on the SuperSoft tyres. This will be a tough battle but I’m quite confident that we chose the right strategy. We can be really proud of how much quality we have in the team. We learned a lot from last year when we were nowhere in qualifying. We’ve closed that gap and that is very satisfying.
