Lewis Hamilton snatches his 100th pole position at the Spanish Grand Prix

Lewis Hamilton took pole position for the Spanish Grand Prix – the 100th of his career.

The Briton, who leads the standings by eight points, reached the landmark on the track where he has won for the last four years – the Circuit de Catalunya.

He could not improve on his final flying lap but nor could Red Bull’s Max Verstappen, who was second best, three-hundredths back.

The champ had done enough already. Valtteri Bottas, in the second Mercedes, was third best a tenth behind his team-mate.

Charles Leclerc of Ferrari was fourth, while Brit Lando Norris was ninth quickest.

George Russell qualified 15th for Williams, again putting his team-mate Nicholas Latifi in the shade.

But the glory belonged to Hamilton, with his record-extending 100th pole – another slice of history.
