[Breaking] Mark Webber grabs third successive pole in Istanbul

Australia's Formula One world championship leader Mark Webber took his third successive pole position here on Saturday at the Turkish Grand Prix.

The 33-year-old Red Bull driver - who is equal on points with team-mate Sebastien Vettel but leads by virtue of races won this term - is bidding for a third successive victory.

For the seventh consecutive time this year the Milton Keynes-based team will start from the front row of the grid, but it was a close run thing as Webber narrowly edged out McLaren's Lewis Hamilton by 0.138seconds with a lap of one minute 26.295secs.

In making it three in a row, Webber became the first Australian to achieve such a feat since Sir Jack Brabham in 1960, and the first in Formula One since Ferrari's Felipe Massa three years ago.
