Japanese Grand Prix: Cars on fire as Mark Webber takes Suzuka pole

Mark Webber takes pole position for the Japanese Grand Prix at Suzuka as both Esteban Gutierrez and Jean-Eric Vergne suffer from fires.

Sauber's Gutierrez suffered a fire while refuelling during the first part of practice that was quickly extinguished, before a more substantial fire on Jean-Eric Vergne's Toro Rosso saw the session stopped during Q1.

Ferrari's Fernando Alonso was only eighth fastest ahead of a race in which he needs to finish at least eighth if Vettel wins on Sunday to keep the championship alive until the next race in India.
