Hamilton: I am incredibly happy with British GP Pole
Reign world champion Lewis Hamilton will start the British Grand Prix from pole position following edging out his nearest title rival Nico Rosberg in front of his home fans.

Championship leader posted a time of 1:32.248 seconds to beat Rosberg to top spot by just 0.113sec to the delight of the 110,000 crowd at Silverstone.

“It’s a special day. When you see all those fans out there, so many people they really do motivate me. Hamilton said following the session.

“It is special when you do get the pole. Generally it has not been the smoothest of weekends. I made a change in the car before qualifying which hopefully will be good for the race. Once I got to Q3 I could go all out, and I am incredibly happy. Big thank you to everyone for the support.

“It’s the banners, the flags, the team caps, the messages that get sent every day. I was replying to some just before qualifying they just create the atmosphere that buzz. You know those guys are there right behind you and I hope the energy they give can help us tomorrow.”
