Sebastian Vettel takes pole for Hungarian GP

Sebastian Vettel put a Ferrari on pole position at the Hungaroring for the first time since 2005, denying Lewis Hamilton the opportunity to equal Michael Schumacher’s pole record.

Qualifying runs with low fuel and fresh supersoft rubber saw the Hungaroring’s lap record slashed several times during qualifying on Saturday.

The record was broken twice in Q2, first by Vettel and then Hamilton, before the Ferrari driver slashed it to a 1:16.276 on his opening race in Q3.

It was Ferrari’s first pole position at the Hungaroring since Schumacher in 2005.

Kimi Raikkonen made it a Ferrari lock out as he finished P2, 0.168s down, while Bottas and Hamilton dropped to third and fourth.

Verstappen will line up in fifth place ahead of Daniel Ricciardo, Nico Hulkenberg and Fernando Alonso.
