Sebastian Vettel was full of praise for his 'wonderful car' after the Red Bull driver secured his fourth straight pole position in qualifying for the Hungarian Grand Prix.
The German led his teammate Mark Webber in all-Red Bull front row, more than a second clear of Fernando Alonso's third place Ferrari.
"All weekend we felt very comfortable and we've been able to improve [the car] another bit overnight," said Vettel.
"I got on the radio to the boys and I told them that it was their moment. They built this wonderful car, which is such a pleasure to drive. I'm looking forward to racing tomorrow.
"It was actually quite a difficult session. I didn't have a smooth run with the option [tires] in Q2 and there was not too much we could do with the car, but in Q3 I was more confident. Hopefully we'll have a good start tomorrow and a great race."
Vettel was at a loss to explain the huge pace advantage over the rest of the field at the twisty Hungaroring.
"We were asking ourselves where Ferrari got their pace from at Hockenheim, and now it's us ahead," he added. "The track just suits us. We did the best we could and we can be very proud of this."
He believes that after throwing away victory at last weekend's German Grand Prix due to a poor start, his getaway will be more important than ever on Sunday.
"We found the problem from last weekend where I made bad start, so had to decide which way to go," he said. But I'm confident we can have a normal start and at least be able to defend the position.
"Usually in Hungary it's important to be on clean side. I said last year, when I was second and Alonso was on pole, that if I'd been on the clean side, it would have been a difficult race. For sure with overtaking so difficult here, the start will be very important."
