Lewis Hamilton claimed his first pole position since the opening round
13 May, 2018, 15:14
Lewis Hamilton ended Sebastian Vettel's dominant run in Formula One qualifying by setting a track record and wining pole position for the Spanish Grand Prix on Saturday. Renault managed to turn his auto around in time to attempt a final run, but he finished the session 16th - just 0.04s slower than Stoffel Vandoorne.
Both Ferrari's used the soft compound tyre for the second and final run in Q3, with the delta between soft and supersoft proving to be insignificant. It's also worth noting that all of the top ten apart from Alonso set their fastest Q2 time on the soft, meaning they will start the race on that tyre and aim for a one-stop strategy. Valteri Bottas (Mercedes) - +0,0403. Ricciardo almost needed to use supersofts to progress, but the Red Bulldriver was just safe as errors from those behind allowed him to back off out of the final corner and avoid a lap time improvement. Raikkonen went second initially before Hamilton lowered the benchmark to a 1m16.173s and set a new circuit record in the process. Raikkonen, who ran wide at Turn 1 on his first attempt and entered his final run provisionally seventh, ensured that Ferrari locked-out the second row by finishing fourth.
On a cooler and less windy day, the cars were more stable and lower temperatures enabled greater use of the "super-soft" tyres, but it was the slightly harder "soft" tyres that remained Mercedes' preferred choice.
Magnussen qualified seventh. Grosjean was 10th in Q3, despite only being 0.2s adrift of his team-mate's time. Renault's Carlos Sainz finished ninth ahead of Haas' Romain Grosjean.
Alonso only narrowly progressed into the final part of qualifying.
