Lewis Hamilton seals 90th F1 pole with Mercedes 1s clear of their rivals; Racing Point on second row ahead of Ferrari, while Verstappen only 7th for Red Bull; Russell out-qualifies Albon in the Williams.

LEWIS Hamilton claimed pole position for the Hungarian GP by edging out Valtteri Bottas as Mercedes streaked clear of their rivals, with Racing Point locking out the second row.

Mercedes, who have been the class of the field throughout the Budapest weekend, were even more dominant in Saturday’s shootout and, with Red Bull fading completely out of the fight, Q3 turned out to be a head-to-head battle between Hamilton and Bottas for pole.

While Bottas improved on his final lap, it wasn’t enough to beat an in-form Hamilton – who took an incredible 90th F1 pole by acing his last effort with a 1:13.4, a tenth of a second ahead of his title rival and team-mate.
