Germany’s Nico Rosberg put Mercedes on pole position for Sunday’s Japanese Formula One Grand Prix with championship-leading team mate Lewis Hamilton joining him on the front row.

Finland’s Valtteri Bottas qualified third for Williams with Brazilian team mate Felipe Massa fourth.

Hamilton, who leads Rosberg by three points with five races remaining, is chasing a hat-trick of wins and had been on pole in the previous two races.

Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso starts fifth.

Meanwhile four times world champion Sebastian Vettel is leaving Red Bull at the end of the season and is set to join Ferrari, the Formula One team said on Saturday.

Red Bull said in a statement Vettel’s seat would be taken by 20-year-old Russian driver Daniil Kvyat, while team boss Christian Horner said at the Japanese Grand Prix on Saturday the German would be racing for Ferrari from next season.
