Hamilton has done British pole position record for the Chinese GP


Lewis Hamilton’s Chinese Grand Prix pole moves him ahead of Jim Clark and Alain Prost in the all-time qualifying stats to fourth overall, on 34 career poles.

The British speedy took his third pole position of this season as he generate a leading show in qualifying, finishing half a second quicker than Daniel Ricciardo and more than a second quicker than his Mercedes team-mate Nico Rosberg and defending world champion Sebastian Vettel.

The 2008 world champion Hamilton is a two-time Chinese GP winner (2008 and 2011) and has finished on the podium in each of the last four seasons. Even as Red Bull, has not had a podium finish since 2011.

Another enjoyable movement for Red Bull is that both drivers have qualified in the top three for the first time this season.BlkfordCMAI-Gqs
