Taking pole for the British Grand Prix was Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton. His fast lap of 1:25.892 set a new track qualifying record at Silverstone and was .044 of a second better than runner-up Sebastian Vettel of Scuderia Ferrari. The two are locked in a tight championship battle, with Vettel leading Hamilton by a single point.
It was Hamilton’s 76th career Formula One pole, his fourth this season and his fourth straight at Silverstone. It was also Hamilton’s record-breaking sixth pole in the British Grand Prix, besting the mark he previously shared with Jim Clark and Alain Prost.
