Red Bull dish of the day if you're Hungary

Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel claimed his seventh pole position of the 2010 F1 season closely joined by teammate Mark Webber in a Red Bull front row lock-down.

The constructors' championship 4/6 favourites claimed their eleventh pole position in twelve races and it's an important P1 to have with a low pace curvy Hungaroring awaiting.

"It's good to be on pole," beamed Vettel. "I think we have been there a couple of times this year. I'm confident for tomorrow that we have a very good chance to win."

A deflated Mark Webber (9/4 for the Hungary Grand Prix win) was nearly half a second behind Vettel (4/7 race favourite) and could only look on as the German owned the Saturday session in Hungary

"We weren't quick enough today" said Webber. "We could have done better of course so we deserve to be second. It's going to be an interesting start and then after that we know with these regulations the race can be interesting in terms of trying to stay awake"

Ferrari were predictably next in line with Fernando Alonso's F10 performing his fastest lap 1.2 seconds slower than Vettel, but just ahead of Felipe Massa - the Brazilian returning to the track where he suffered the severe head injury this time last year.

Fernando Alonso is a tempting 6/1 to win the Hungarian Grand Prix, with Felipe Massa priced at odds of 20/1 in the betting although the Ferrari's don't fancy their chances this weekend with Alonso describing the Red Bulls as 'dominant and untouchable'.

"We know the track is difficult to overtake on," he said. "The start, the first corner, first lap will be 60 or 70 percent of the final result."

Current championship leader Lewis Hamilton (20/1) managed to steal P5, while McLaren team mate Jenson Button had a disappointing session, failing to make it through to ‘Quali-3'. Button will start 11th on the grid and is a huge 100/1 (1/3 odds 1st and 2nd place).

"Your target is always pole, but the Red Bulls are impossible to beat, they are 1.7 seconds ahead," said Hamilton "For Jenson and me, we just look at the onboard footage and laugh. I don't know what they are doing but it's incredible."

Nico Rosberg continued his impressive driving this week with P6 ahead of Mercedez' Michael Schumacher (200/1) who limped around the Hungaroring. For the fourth occasion this year, the senior German found himself sat in the pits while the speedsters were battling it out for position in the final session.

Nico Rosberg can be backed at a massive 100/1 for the Hungarian Grand Prix, while Schumacher is found around the 200's mark.

Although Vettel is once again sitting on pole, F1 fans have watched the German fail to convert time and time again so opposing the Red Bull driver might be the way forward.

Mark Webber is consistent, and has perhaps has the cooler head of the two, so at 9/4 I would rather be on the Australian, with Alonso's 6/1 too large not to have an each-way punt.

Also, Jenson Button is always good to watch as he weaves his McLaren through the pack and at 100/1, might make your Hungary Grand Prix a thriller for the sake of a couple of quid.
