F1 British GP Live : Lewis Hamilton takes pole position for the British Grand Prix

In the Formula 1 British GP in Silverstone race to pole got limited to a fight between Mercedes versus Mercedes.Hamilton v Bottas. World champion versus world runner-up. Current Championship leader v current second-placed driver.
 
And finally Lewis Hamilton triumphed over Bottas as he grabbed pole position in the British GP for record 7th time. 
 
Hamilton smashes the track record again with a 1:24.303. Valtteri Bottas finished three tenths behind and it will be another all-Mercedes front row tomorrow at Silverstone. 
 
Incidentally, Hamilton is the first driver to take seven poles at his home race. And on top of which, he was a full second ahead of everyone except his team mate.
 
At the end of the day Valtteri is pushing me right to the limit. It was a real struggle out there, the wind in different parts of the circuit. I had the spin, took some deep breaths and managed to compose myself for Q3. It never gets old, that’s for sure.
Lewis Hamilton, Mercedes
I felt pretty comfortable, but in Q3 I started to drift a bit with the rear end, more than I’d have liked. I think my long run performance has been really good, last year Lewis managed to win from second place…
Valtteri Bottas, Mercedes
