Jamie Whincup has battled through a sore ankle to help Red Bull Holden claim the first two Supercars pole positions up for grabs at the Melbourne 400 at the Australian Formula One Grand Prix.
The 37-year-old topped the times in the second qualifying session on Thursday after teammate Shane van Gisbergen nabbed the first pole position available at the Albert Park circuit.
"I was running late for drivers' briefing and came out of the truck and rolled it pretty bad actually," Whincup said.
"I was happy to get through today and then we'll give it some treatment tomorrow.
"It's sore but didn't affect the lap time at all, which is good, so I'm very lucky."
Tickford Racing's Cameron Waters will also start on the front row in his Ford Mustang.
Red Bull locked down the first row for Race 3 when van Gisbergen finished ahead of Whincup in the first qualifying session.
Ford flyers Will Davison and reigning champion Scott McLaughlin will start on the second row in third and fourth respectively.
Macauley Jones was unable to take part in either of the day's qualifying sessions.
His Team CoolDrive Commodore suffered a brake failure at high speed approaching Turn 1 and crashed into the tyre barrier in a collision that ended the second practice session.
The circuit will host four 20-lap races across the course of the Formula One meeting.
Championship leader McLaughlin has a 27-point lead on Whincup after the season-opening Adelaide 500.
