Lewis Hamilton masterclass secures pole position at Belgian Grand Prix

Curated by

 

Lewis Hamilton waves to the crowd at Spa-Francorchamps after edging out his Mercedes team-mate Nico Rosberg to secure pole position in the Belgian Grand Prix. The final two laps were the ones that really counted, and they could not be matched by his team-mate Nico Rosberg, who finished four-and-a-half tenths back from the British driver. Hamilton was confident early in the weekend that the issues had been investigated and rectified but he, like the rest of the grid, will also have to deal with the new start procedures being employed for the first time on Sunday.

 

 

  • Hamilton nailed it in the middle sector on his first quick run in the final session.
  • Although Rosberg was once again unhappy with the balance of his car, the gap to Hamilton will feel like an awfully long one given the pair have identical machinery.
  • It is Hamilton’s 10th pole of the season – he now has six in succession – and the 48th of his career.
