Lewis Hamilton claimed the 100th pole position of his career in qualifying for the Spanish Grand Prix.
Hamilton could not improve on his first flying lap in the third qualifying session, but neither could anyone else.
Red Bull’s Max Verstappen will start alongside Hamilton after going second fastest while the Mercedes of Valtteri Bottas is in third.
Hamilton’s Mercedes was just 0.036 seconds faster than Verstappen, who was in turn 0.096secs ahead of the second Mercedes of Valtteri Bottas.
Ferrari’s Charles LeClerc wrestled his car into fourth place in another stellar effort with inferior machinery.
Esteban Ocon pt in his best effort on a Saturday to claim fifth place on the grid and will start alongside Carlos Sainz in the second Ferrari.
Of his 100th career pole, Hamilton said:
“I can’t believe we are at 100 and it’s down to the men and women back at the factory who are continuously raising the bar. The support I have, it’s a dream to work with these guys.
“Who would have though at the end of 2012 when we made the decision to partner, we’d be qualifying at 100. I feel humble and grateful – it’s like my first!”
Verstappen lamented a final session that didn’t work out for him.
“It was good. I struggled in Q1 but we sorted out the balance in Q2 which was good. Q3 both laps were pretty decent, the second run was a little worse. It is quite gusty. Nevertheless second for us is very good today. We know they are hard to beat around here. To be that close we can be happy with that.”
