Valtteri Bottas outpaced his Mercedes team-mate Lewis Hamilton to claim pole position with a record-breaking lap in Saturday's qualifying session for Sunday's season-ending Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
The 28-year-old Finn clocked a best lap in one minute, 36.231 seconds to outpace the newly-crowned four-time world champion. It was Bottas' fourth career pole and the first time he had claimed back-to-back pole positions.
German four-time champion Sebastian Vettel took third place for Ferrari ahead of Australian Daniel Ricciardo of Red Bull and his Ferrari team-mate Kimi Raikkonen, with Dutchman Max Verstappen sixth in the second Red Bull.
German Nico Hulkenberg took seventh for Renault ahead of Mexican Sergio Perez and his Force India team-mate Esteban Ocon, with retirement-bound Brazilian Felipe Massa 10th in his final outing for the Williams team.
"Thanks guys," said Bottas, whose wife is at the circuit, at the end. "You know, family support is always nice!"
