Spa-Francorchamps, Belgium: Nico Rosberg took advantage of title rival and Mercedes team-mate Lewis Hamilton's grid penalty to storm to pole position for the Belgian Grand Prix at Spa on Saturday.

German Rosberg posted a fastest lap of one minute and 46.744 seconds, edging out Dutch teenager Max Verstappen, who will be the youngest driver in Formula One history to start from the front row in Sunday's race.
