McLaren's Lewis Hamilton secured pole position for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, holding off the Red Bull duo of Mark Webber and Sebastian Vettel.

Hamilton clocked 1 minute, 40.630 seconds on the 3.5-mile Yas Marina circuit Saturday, 0.348 seconds quicker than Webber.

Ferrari's Fernando Alonso, 13 points behind Vettel in the drivers' standings with three races remaining, slumped to seventh. The Spaniard has struggled all weekend with pace and last-minute changes by his team have failed to improve his performance.

Pastor Maldonado of Williams will start fourth followed by Kimi Raikkonen of Lotus and Jenson Button of McLaren.
