Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber locked out the front row in qualifying for Sunday's Indian Grand Prix, with Ferrari's Fernando Alonso down in fifth place.
Red Bull have now dominated qualifying for the last three Grands Prix, with Vettel six points ahead of Alonso in the drivers' standings as the season draws to an exciting conclusion.
I'm happy to be on pole, but there's a hard race coming up tomorrow.Sebastian Vettel
Vettel was less than a tenth of a second quicker than team-mate Webber at the Buddh International Circuit, with McLaren duo Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button in third and fourth places respectively.
Spaniard Alonso, who is 11.00 to win the race on Sunday, was nearly half a second adrift of championship rival Vettel, who won the inaugural Indian Grand Prix last year.
The German, the two-time defending world champion, is 1.36 to take the chequered flag and is now 1.16 to complete a hat-trick of drivers' titles.
Pole-sitter Vettel said after another superb performance: "All in all it has been a great weekend so far. We're looking forward to the race.
"I'm happy to be on pole, but there's a hard race coming up tomorrow."
Vettel had also been the fastest driver in each of the three practice sessions in India and is the man to beat on Sunday, as he targets a fourth consecutive GP victory and a fifth win of the season.
