Mark Webber said he and team mate Sebastian Vettel expected they would be competing between themselves for pole position at the Circuit de Catalunya.
Speaking after taking pole position, Webber said: “It was pretty clear going into qualifying that we might have a bit of a margin so it was probably going to be down to Seb and I for the front row – without being arrogant, you never can underestimate these guys but we thought we were probably going to battle for pole between ourselves.”
He added: “The lap was pretty good, I was just praying that my number went above number one when I crossed the gantry at the start/finish line, and it did.
“So it was a nice lap, a good battle with Seb and today was my day.”
