United States GP qualifying results: Rosberg eclipses Hamilton

Rosberg takes pole for the ninth time this season.

After leading all three practice sessions, Lewis Hamilton loses out to teammate Nico Rosberg in qualifying. Rosberg showed the way from the start in Q3, a full four tenths quicker than Hamilton when the checkered flag flew.

It's important to note that three drivers will be facing grid penalties with Button dropping to 12th, Kvyat to last, and Vettel will start from the pit lane.
