Lewis Hamilton on French Grand Prix pole

Lewis Hamilton beat Mercedes team-mate Valtteri Bottas to pole position at the French Grand Prix.
Bottas heads into the race 29 points behind Hamilton and needs to beat him to get his challenge back on track.
Bottas had looked to have an edge on Hamilton through practice, but when it mattered the Briton made it count, as he so often does.
It was Hamilton’s third pole of the season, matching Bottas’ tally.
In the final qualifying session, Hamilton was 0.157secs quicker than Bottas on the first runs.
