Championship leader Lewis Hamilton is on pole position for the Belgian Grand Prix, finishing half a second clear of Mercedes team-mate Valtteri Bottas.
Hamilton was fastest on both laps in the final qualifying session and beat Bottas by 0.511secs. Red Bull’s Max Verstappen was 0.015secs off the Finn.
Daniel Ricciardo excelled with fourth place on the grid, ahead of the second Red Bull of Alexander Albon.
Ferrari struggled, Charles Leclerc and Sebastian Vettel down in 13th and 14th.
Hamilton’s performance was one of his most impressive, as he took his 93rd pole with two laps in another dimension to what Bottas could manage.
On his first, Hamilton was 0.578secs clear of his team-mate, and although Bottas improved on his second run, so did the Briton. (BBC)
