The Australian qualified a place ahead of Renault team-mate Nico Hulkenberg to secure the qualifying battle between them this season.
Only one driver started qualifying with a grid penalty having over them, with Sergio Perez dropping five places back from 11th due to a change of gearbox, necessitated by a collision with the barriers in FP3.
