Lewis Hamilton will start tomorrow’s race from pole on home soil after he was faster than his teammate Rosberg today in Silverstone. Max Verstappen was 3rd, for the first time outperforming Ricciardo in qualifying.

The British Grand Prix didn’t start well for two of their local drivers, since Button and Palmer were knocked out in Q1 as Kvyat and Magnussen improved their times in their last attempt. Haryanto, Wehrlein, Nasr and Ericsson, who couldn’t take part in qualifying following his accident in FP3, were the other eliminated drivers. Mercedes were fastest ahead of Red Bull and Ferrari, who were very close to each other.

Kimi Räikkönen struggled to set a time with his Ferrari after spinning in his first attempt before starting his flying lap and running wide in his second one. He finally was able to save himself from the knockout zone with the 6th fastest time. Pérez, Massa, Grosjean, Gutiérrez, Kvyat and Magnussen were eliminated while Sainz and Alonso stole the last spots in Q3. Hamilton was fastest, 0,7s ahead of his teammate and 1.4 ahead of Verstappen on 3rd.

Hamilton set the fastest time in the first Q3 attempt, but his time was deleted due to exceeding track limits, leaving him with only one chance to steal pole from Rosberg, who was 1st 7 tenths ahead of Verstappen. He finally managed to improve his time and stole pole position from Rosberg. Verstappen completed the top 3 ahead of Ricciardo, Räikkönen, Vettel, Bottas, Sainz, Hülkenberg and Alonso. Vettel has a gearbox change penalty, so he’ll start 11th tomorrow.
