Hamilton grabs Canadian pole to equal Ayrton Senna

Lewis Hamilton takes his 65th F1 Pole for Canadian Grand Prix, and it’s to equal F1 legend Ayrton Senna.
The Brit has delivered a awesome lap in qualifying for Sunday’s Canadian Grand Prix, a 1:11.459, to score his fourth pole of the 2017 Formula 1 season.

Hamilton was quickest in Q2, on a 1:12.496s, following the Brit set provisional pole with a 1:11.791s lap on his first Q3 attempt, instantly Vettel responded and made second fastest – falling short by just 0.004 seconds, following he struggled at the Turn 6/7 chicane.

In Q3 final run the triple-time world champion did an awesome lap with a 1:11.459s to seal pole, nearest title challenger Vettel 0.336s short of taking the top spot.

The second Mercedes ace Valtteri Bottas was third fastest. The Finn was slightly quicker than Hamilton in Q1 and not far behind in Q2, but was well crushed in Q3, finishing over seven tenths of a second down on his team-mate.

FP2 pacemaker Kimi Raikkonen touch the wall in Q1 and ended up fourth fastest overall in the second Ferrari, complaining of a “really shit” first corner on his quickest lap.

The Red Bull duo Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo slotted in fifth and sixth respectively, with the Force India drivers Sergio Perez and Esteban Ocon eighth and ninth ahead of Felipe Massa (Williams) and Nico Hulkenberg (Renault) will start in seventh and 10th, respectively.
