Verstappen led the two by just 0.059s, and there was then another quarter of a second back to Lewis Hamilton in fourth place.

"But what can I do?"

"Tomorrow is the main thing, that is the time when we get the points". "We've been trying to get ahead of the Ferraris, but it has been tough, they just had the pace all weekend. We had an hydraulic leak in (the last) Melbourne race and were fortunate to finish the race", a Mercedes spokesman said.

However, after making a small error initially, the Ferrari driver was flawless on his second attempt to beat teammate Kimi Raikkonen by 0.143s as the Scuderia swept the front row for the first time this season. "There are a couple of different strategies tomorrow so I will try and eek out every last bit of power and strength from the vehicle".

"We've got more to do overnight and in the session tomorrow to give us a vehicle that will allow us to have a good fight in qualifying and on Sunday".

After another hot day, the floodlit qualifying session began with a minor drama in Q1 when New Zealander Brendon Hartley ran off track and damaged his Toro Rosso's front wing, reported AFP.

The Dutchman was furious with himself after losing control at Turn 2 and shunting into a tyre barrier before taking a ride back to the garage on a scooter.

Race director Charlie Whiting red-flagged the session while the stricken Red Bull was recovered, with Verstappen climbing out of the vehicle and reporting he was unscathed.

The Finn was 0.5 seconds ahead of the Red Bulls of Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo, while Lewis Hamilton was only fourth in his hard Mercedes.

Eight minutes later, the session resumed.

Qualifying for the 2018 Bahrain Grand Prix has resulted in a Front row for Ferrari, with Sebastian Vettel on pole.

Hamilton's chances of winning the race took a hit after he was penalized five grid penalties for an unscheduled gearbox change on Friday.

McLaren endured a disappointing qualifying with neither Fernando Alonso nor Stoffel Vandoorne making it through to the final top-10. The two Williams of Sergey Sirotkin and Lance Stroll ended the session in 19th and 20th. The advantage in sector one, which is made up of two long straights and slow speed corners, suggests Ferrari's turbo-hybrid engine was running in a higher engine mode than its rivals, but Raikkonen's pace was impressive nonetheless.

He was sixth quickest and will line-up fifth, with the Haas of Kevin Magnussen, the Renault of Nico Huldenberg and Force India's Esteban Ocon also benefitting from Hamilton's grid penalty.
