Rosberg pole, Hamilton in back in Hungary

BUDAPEST, Hungary (AP) - Formula One championship leader Nico Rosberg claimed pole position on Saturday for the Hungarian Grand Prix while Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton will start at the back of the race grid as an engine fire prevented him from setting a qualifying time.

Rosberg's time of 1 minute, 22.715 seconds at the Hungaroring was 0.486 seconds ahead of Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel and Valtteri Bottas of Williams qualified third.

Hamilton, who was fastest in all three practice sessions, will start at the back for the second straight grand prix as his engine caught fire in the early stages of the first session of qualifying.

A brief rain shower complicated the final session of qualifying, with Kevin Magnussen of McLaren sliding off the track and making a heavy collision with a tire wall.
