Hamilton takes British GP pole 

Lewis Hamilton claimed pole position for the British Grand Prix, putting in an almost untouchable performance in his Mercedes that his championship rival, Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel, could not match.

Vettel caught traffic on his final hot run and was beaten into second place by his team-mate Kimi Raikkonen. Hamilton had to face an investigation for potentially blocking Romain Grosjean in the Haas during his first quick run in Q3 but the Mercedes driver was cleared.

This is his sixth pole of the season and the 67th of his career, one short of Michael Schumacher’s total of 68, the most any driver has achieved. Hamilton now has five poles at Silverstone, matching Jim Clark’s tally, including at the last two races here, both of which he converted into victories following one from sixth place in 2014.
