Out of no where Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg claimed the first Formula One pole position of his career.
McLaren's Lewis Hamilton qualified second, but will have to start Sunday's race from seventh due to a five-place grid penalty for changing his gearbox.
The biggest surprise of qualifying was the absence of world champion Sebastian Vettel from the final session. He missed out on the top 10 by just five hundredths of a second and will start the race from 11th.
Although six of the previous seven winners (minus Kimi Raikkonen - 2007) will line-up for Sunday's event, only McLaren's Lewis Hamilton has ever won this event twice.
If the qualifying has been any indication.....should be a great race.
