Daniel Ricciardo secured a spot on the second row as he qualified fourth for the Malaysian Grand Prix.

Rain early in Q2 prompted all of the drivers out on the track early in the session. Restricted to just one lap before the torrential downpour, both Ricciardo and team-mate Daniil Kvyat managed to set a time in the top 10, booking their spots in Q3.

After a lengthy delay to allow the track to dry, there was a hectic end to the session as drivers vied for position to set a lap as the track was at its driest.

Ricciardo’s time of 1:51.541 was good enough for fourth on the grid, behind Lewis Hamilton, Sebastian Vettel and Nico Rosberg.

Kvyat lines up one place behind his Red Bull Racing team mate in fifth, with a time of 1:51.951.
