Qualifying started in dry conditions, with all of the drivers barring Pastor Maldonado setting a dry lap time. Unfortunately for Maldonado, he had issues with his Lotus that necessitated a return to the pits early in the session, and shortly after he rejoined the track, it began to rain, which put paid to his chances of progressing to Q2. A couple of spins later and his qualifying session was effectively over.

Q3 started wetter than Q2 had been, with most of the drivers going out on full wet tyres, with the exception of Fernando Alonso who chose to use intermediates instead. In the early part of Q3, rookies Kevin Magnussen and Daniil Kvyat joined Daniel Ricciardo in setting some impressive lap times. But ultimately it was Mercedes who had the pace for pole position. As the water on the track was dispersed by the tyres, Hamilton and Rosberg exchanged fastest lap times, with Ricciardo joining in every now and then.

Right at the end of the session, Rosberg crossed the line to register the quickest time seen thus far, but was beaten not too long after that by Ricciardo's Red Bull, to the delight of the Australian crowd. But right at the end of Q3, Lewis Hamilton delivered an even quicker lap to snatch pole position away from the home hero.

Kevin Magnussen was an impressive fourth for McLaren in his first F1 qualifying session. Fernando Alonso qualified fifth, ahead of Jean-Eric Vergne's Toro Rosso, Nico Hulkenberg's Force India and Daniil Kvyat in the second Toro Rosso. The Williams pair of Felipe Massa and Valtteri Bottas completed the top ten, demonstrating that the fortunes of the Williams team have improved dramatically after their struggles in 2013.

Sunday's race promises to be thrilling, with some fresh faces starting high up on the grid and three World Champions starting 11th, 12th and 13th. At this stage it looks like Mercedes have the edge, but it is impossible to predict who will have the reliability to finish the race.
