Hamilton: Feel very proud, honoured to be up amongst Fangio & Senna

Defending world champion, Lewis Hamilton clocked the fastest time at qualifying in Monza by half a second over his temmate and nearest title rival Nico Rosberg.

Hamilton has now won pole position five times at the Italian Grand Prix, equalling a record set by F1 legends Juan Manuel Fangio and Ayrton Senna.

“I feel very proud and honoured to be up amongst Fangio and Senna, incredible drivers and I never thought in a million years my name would be mentioned in the same breath as them,” he said, according to the BBC.

“I came with my A game today, particularly that last lap felt incredible. It’s a great track with great fans. Race by race I continue to say that this team is fantastic, and it’s a pleasure to drive for them.”

Rosberg’s countryman Sebastian Vettel of Ferrari will start third, followed by his teammate Kimi Raikkonen.

Four-time World Champion Vettel – subsequently admitted the Mercedes drivers appear to be in a league of their own.

“I’m very happy for us to lock out the second row, although I’m not entirely happy as those guys ahead look like they’re in a world of their own,” he admitted.
