Pole was there for the taking - Vettel

Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel believes pole position was there for the taking despite only qualifying second fastest for the Malaysian Grand Prix.

The German finished 0.055 seconds behind Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton in a rain-affected qualifying session in Sepang.

However, the four-time world champion says, that after the difficulties the team has faced this winter, he is "very happy" to be on the front row of the grid for Sunday's race.
