- Mercedes driver on pole for 91st time in career
- Bottas second on the grid, with Verstappen third
Lewis Hamilton took pole for the British Grand Prix with a dominant performance at Silverstone. He beat his Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas into second place but the pair were in a battle of their own for the front row of the grid. Max Verstappen was in third for Red Bull a full second back, with Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc in fourth and McLaren’s Lando Norris an impressive fifth.
Hamilton saved his best for last, he had not finished fastest in a session all weekend until the final runs in Q3 and indeed had shown a rare moment of weakness in spinning off in Q2. When it mattered however the British driver had Silverstone at his fingertips once more.
