That was Lewis Hamilton’s first pole position in Spain, fourth of the season and the 35th of his career.

Lewis Hamilton, pole man: “It’s been a tough day. Nico has been driving really well through P3 and qualifying, so I didn’t know if I could get it. At the end, I had to eek out everything and more from the car.

“Coming here this weekend, I didn’t know where everyone would be. But I see the development and work that has gone on to get the car ready and it inspires me. A big thank you to the team.

“To have the kind of performance we have, I have never really known that before. I’m overwhelmed, so happy.”

Nico Rosberg, who will start second: “Very disappointing, yes. I don’t particularly enjoy coming second to Lewis. In the end it was a good lap. Lewis just did a better job. It’s still all to play for tomorrow. Second is only a little away from optimum. All it takes is a good start tomorrow and I’m in the lead again and it’s still all to play for.”

Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo, who will start third: “I think we did OK today but it’s not quite good enough. We’re a second off – I expected a closer gap than that. We’ve made improvements this weekend but so have Mercedes. We’re a clear third today and that’s not bad but we want to be closer to the top two.”
