Lewis Hamilton takes dominant pole position for Qatar Grand Prix

Red Bull’s Max Verstappen, 14 points ahead of Hamilton in the title race, was 0.455 seconds behind in second. With Bottas up with Hamilton at the front, Mercedes can try to pincer Verstappen on race strategy in a race, by forcing him to stop at a time that is not optimal. His final lap, though, was a beauty and Verstappen and Bottas had no answer. If Verstappen wins, he would extend his points lead out to close to a clear win with only two races remaining, a deficit Hamilton would find tough to close. “I will be using the same helmet through probably the last two races after this, or at least next week also,” he said.
