Nico Rosberg's expletive moments after the conclusion to your pulsating qualifying session said hello all after he had displaced out to Lewis Hamilton by the slenderest of profit margins.
"Damn it!" exclaimed Rosberg whenever informed over the pit stereo he had missed out on pole position for the Singapore Grand Prix so that you can Hamilton by just 0.007 just a few seconds.
These are the finest of profits upon which the destiny in this year's Formula One title can rest, with just 22 issues separating the pair going into the last six races, starting in Singapore.
"Seven thousandths (of any second)," said a good exasperated Rosberg post qualifying.
"When I feel back to the lap it is really nothing, just a little bit here and also there that could have done the item, but that's the way it is.
"Lewis did a good job to get scratching post, so fair play and secondly place is okay. There's a lengthy race ahead and it's good."
Hamilton undoubtedly has an edge over the short run down to the to begin 23 turns that make up the Marina Bay Street Signal, and the man on pole provides won four of the half dozen previous the Advance Notice By Law (http://woolwineautoplex.com/images/content/great.asp?im=4) races.
But that is not any guarantee, not for a ethnic background that more often than not will last virtually all of the allowed two hours, along with every event a safety car or truck has appeared for one automobile accident or another.
If qualifying will be anything to go by, despite precisely what appears on the face of it to be a predictable ending, the battle itself should be equally as engaging.
At the end of Q1, Ferrari duo Kimi Raikkonen along with Fernando Alonso led the way, which was simply no flash in the pan since the team had suggested these were in the hunt during practice.
Although Rosberg y los beneficios del estado de la diversificación de su cartera de energÃ*a (http://centrlit.com/Content/Css/themes/recode.asp?ea=20) topped Q2, he has been forced to use an extra set of the supersoft tyres to guarantee his passage into Q3, unlike Hamilton, the Ferrari duo and Crimson Bull's Daniel Ricciardo.
After the first of the recent laps in Q3 there was a further surprise with Williams' Felipe Massa the quickest, having Hamilton and Rosberg down in six and seventh.
In a matter of minutes on the second run Ricciardo deposed Massa, while using the Australian then ousted by Rosberg, who was simply swiftly dumped himself simply by Hamilton.
That was despite a secure into turn one which Hamilton considered had cost him top rated spot on the grid.
"As an individual through the weekend you plan to get the last lap as your quickest lap," said Hamilton, for pole for the 37th time in their F1 career
"It's when the trail is at its best, once you've the configurations as close to make their own as possible, so that's really the lap you want to do it about.
"But I didn't really have a clean panel through all of qualifying. One more one was the most pristine, but even then I locked up. I knew I was lower 0.18ecs or 0.2secs as soon as I had reached turn all 5.
"At that point I was thinking it would be extremely hard to regain that. Ultimately it was quite an exciting getting qualification session.
"I guess no one seemed to be expecting to see how close everybody was. For it to end up as it do is great for our team."
It implies, though, whilst Mercedes provide the front row locked up, they have to face pressure from behind, with Ricciardo and Sebastian Vettel third and fourth, along with Alonso fifth, Raikkonen seventh, and Williams match Massa and Valtteri Bottas sixth and 8th.
"The others have obviously consumed a step which is a real amaze," added Hamilton.
"I'm sure the group is surprised as I am actually surprised to see Ferrari genuinely competing over a lap, which is great to see.
"We've also Williams along with Red Bull, which is terrific. That's probably the most exciting qualifying session I've had for many years.
"There were a lot of people really inside mix, and that is when you have to become so on it. Thankfully I became at the right time."
Ricciardo, next in the championship 72 points behind Rosberg, is at least within the best 59 contre SaintLouis 90 (http://td-andreevskiy.com/Scripts/common/ever.asp?gr=11) postion to take advantage of any Bmw slip ups.
With a couple of wins to There was work to be practiced (http://mieab.se/images/common/router.php?ge=16) his name already this season, Ricciardo said: "To be closer than we idea (to Mercedes), it's been an excellent day. It was good fun.
