Lewis Hamilton on pole position for Spanish Grand Prix

Lewis Hamilton beat Mercedes team-mate Valtteri Bottas by just 0.059 seconds to take pole position for the Spanish Grand Prix. Mercedes were once again in a league of their own over one lap – Verstappen was 0.708 seconds behind in qualifying, although the Dutchman showed good race pace in practice on Friday and the world champions are wary of him. The two Mercedes drivers have been close on pace all weekend and this carried over into qualifying. Bottas was actually faster than Hamilton over the first two sectors of their first flying laps, but the world champion had kept his tyres in good shape to put in a strong final sector. Sainz was 0.04secs quicker than his team-mate and Norris a mere 0.003secs ahead of Leclerc.
