    导出博客文章BARCELONA, Spain -- Nico Rosberg will use his frustration from the Bahrain Grand Prix for motivation when he starts the Spanish Grand Prix from pole position Sunday. Dane Cruikshank Stitched Jersey . The German driver finished ahead of Lewis Hamilton to give Mercedes front-row seats at the Circuit de Catalunya, with both drivers still seeking their first wins of the season in a car which has plenty of pace but has lacked durability over the first four races. Three weeks ago, Rosberg took pole in Bahrain only to finish ninth, and he is determined not to fall short again. "We know that this is only half of the job completed and have the painful memory of what happened in Bahrain to prove that," said Rosberg, who is chasing his first podium this season. "Weve worked very hard on our race pace but this track is tough for the tires, particularly with graining. It will be a big challenge tomorrow and our goal is to make the most of the opportunity from starting at the front." While Hamilton had the fastest times in the first two qualifying sessions, Rosberg edged him to win the pole position in 1 minute, 20.718 seconds. Three-time defending champion Sebastian Vettel was third quickest. "It will be a big challenge with the tires tomorrow," said Rosberg, whose best result this season was fourth at the Malaysian GP. "The race is very long and to win its not good enough to start from pole -- you still have to have the fastest race car." Hamilton, the 2008 Formula One champion, is unsure how much to read into his teams qualifying speed. "Ive not been totally happy with the balance of my car all weekend, even today, so we need to look at it this evening and see what we can do for the race," the British driver said. "Limiting the degradation is going to be my major challenge as the general pace isnt too bad." Vettel was satisfied enough with his performance as he finished ahead of Kimi Raikkonens Lotus. "Im quite happy to be honest because yesterday and this morning I wasnt really happy. We improved the car and things calmed down," said Vettel, who has 38 career poles but none in Barcelona. "Its a tough challenge and the tires dont last as well as we would like." The degradation of the Pirelli tires has been an issue all season, and drivers are largely unhappy about how quickly they wear out. Ferrari has yet to secure a pole position this season, and it proved to be another frustrating afternoon for the Italian team after fast practice times in the morning. Fernando Alonso will start fifth and Felipe Massa ninth. Massa finished sixth in qualifying but was bumped down three places for blocking Red Bulls Mark Webber on turns 11 and 12. Jenson Button failed to make the cut for the third session. The Briton will start in 14th place, with teammate Sergio Perez in eighth. "Weve had a difficult couple of days. I had problems throughout practice, so to get through to Q3 was a great result, and something we really werent expecting," Perez said. "Im very pleased because I got absolutely everything out of the car." Earlier, Massa was fastest in the third and final practice session ahead of Raikkonen. Webber was third in final practice but had a poor qualifying session and will start from seventh place, behind Lotus Romain Grosjean. They moved up a place due to Massas grid penalty, as did Perez. "I was disappointed with the lap in Q3 and lost a lot of time in the last sector," Webber said. "Im normally quite strong there, but I was in trouble with the rears." Ferrari wants its drivers to find extra speed in qualifying to increase the pressure on Red Bull. Once again, those hopes were unfulfilled. The closest Ferrari has been to pole was when Massa qualified second in Malaysia. Alonso started the previous three races from third. Mercedes has been fast but lacking durability this season, so Hamilton and Rosberg stayed on longer runs than other drivers in practice. "Its going to be tough to keep these positions tomorrow," Hamilton said. Rashaan Evans Stitched Jersey . LOUIS -- Lance Lynn was one of the more enthusiastic participants as the St. Harold Landry Stitched Jersey . The defence is doing its part, too. Drew Brees threw a pair of touchdown passes in the first half and the guys on the other side made sure that was enough, sending the Saints to a 17-13 victory over the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday night. . Murray beat Sam Querrey 7-6 (5), 6-7 (3), 6-1, 6-3 to clinch Britains opening-round victory against the United States on Sunday at Petco Park. "Im proud of the way Im playing just now, because I had to do a lot of work to get back to where I want to be," Murray said after celebrating with his teammates on the red clay court in a temporary stadium in left field of the downtown home of baseballs San Diego Padres. MONTREAL -- Angelique Kerber put any concerns about her left elbow to rest Friday in the Rogers Cup.The second-seeded German player advanced to the semifinals with a 6-2, 6-2 victory over unseeded Russian Daria Kasatkina. And Kerber did it without a twinge from the elbow that forced her to withdraw from a match last week in Sweden.My elbow is feeling much better, Kerber said. I had a lot of treatments when I came here. Its actually better from match to match. Im not feeling it anymore. Hopefully, it will stay like this.The Australian Open winner will face fifth-seeded Simona Halep of Romania, a 3-6, 6-1, 6-1 winner over No. 9 Svetlana Kuznetsova of Russia.In the night quarterfinals, 10th-seeded Madison Keys of the United States beat 16th-seeded Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova of Russia 7-6 (3), 1-6, 6-0, and Slovakias Kristina Kucova topped 15th-seeded Johanna Konnta of Britain 6-4, 6-3. Luke Falk Stitched Jersey. Kerber and Halep, the top two players left, have met five times. Halep won the first three, all on hard courts like the one at Uniprix Stadium. Kerber won the next two, both this year -- one on a clay court in Federation Cup play and the other on grass in the Wimbledon quarterfinals.Kerber is left-handed, and Halep swings with the right.Every match we played against each other was really close, Kerber said. I think itll depend on the day. We both are really tough players. We are both moving really good. I think it will be just another match against her where I know I have to play my best tennis, being aggressive, having a lot of patience against her and, yeah, trying of course to beat her again.
