Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes) has taken his 91st pole position in his career: for the seventh time, the world champion starts in first place on the Silverstone circuit. Teammate Valtteri Bottas emphasized Mercedes’ dominance even more. Max Verstappen (3rd) and Charles Leclerc (4th) already followed a second.
Last year Valtteri Bottas trumped his teammate in front of his own supporters, but Lewis Hamilton was now not put aside in Great Britain. For the seventh time, he starts on pole position in his pursuit of a seventh win at Silverstone.
Max Verstappen (Red Bull) must be the hot breath in the neck of the Silver Arrows from third place tomorrow. Charles Leclerc proved that Ferrari may play a role in Great Britain.
Nico Hülkenberg, who replaces Racing Point after the corona infection of Sergio Perez, did not make it to Q3. Lance Stroll was able to park his “pink Mercedes” in 6th place.
