ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates (AP) - Mark Webber beat Red Bull teammate Sebastian Vettel's time at the end of qualifying Saturday to take pole position for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
The veteran Australian is competing in his final season in Formula One and still looking for his first win of 2013. He aims to end Vettel's run of six straight race wins on Sunday.
Vettel, who has already clinched his fourth straight F1 title, had taken pole in four of the past five races.
Mercedes starts on the second row, with Nico Rosberg ahead of Lewis Hamilton, who spun his car in the closing seconds.
It proved a rough afternoon for Ferrari driver Fernando Alonso, who failed to make Q3 for the first time this season and starts from 11th on the grid.
