Mercedes duo on 'perfect' qualification
- From the section Formula 1
Mercedes drivers Nico Rosberg and Michael Schumacher praise the "perfect result" after the team lock out the front row for Sunday's Chinese Grand Prix.
Rosberg was half a second faster than the rest of the field as he secured his first ever pole position, while team-mate and seven-time world champion Schumacher qualified an impressive third - later improved to second after McLaren driver Lewis Hamilton's five-place grid penalty.
Schumacher feels the race will be "a hard fight" despite the Mercedes one-two, while team boss Ross Brawn says he'll have his "fingers crossed" for Mercedes' first win since the 1955 Italian Grand Prix.
