Lewis Hamilton on Hungarian Grand Prix pole position

Lewis Hamilton beat team-mate Valtteri Bottas to lead a Mercedes one-two in qualifying for the Hungarian Grand Prix. Mercedes were in a league of their own – Hamilton beat Bottas by 0.181 seconds while Racing Point’s Lance Stroll in third was 0.93secs off the pace. Hamilton’s pole was the 90th of his career, and in the race on Sunday he will be going for a record-equalling eighth victory at one circuit. Bottas, who is six points ahead of Hamilton in the championship, said: “The last lap was really good. But not only was Verstappen 1.4secs off Hamilton’s pace, but he was also 0.3secs slower than his qualifying time last year. Team-mate Alexander Albon was even worse off, 0.8secs off Verstappen in second qualifying and not even making it into the top 10, he qualified 13th.
