More from Lewis Hamilton on his pole-winning lap: “I think we’ve been strong all weekend and I made some changes – I had a bit of anxiety about the changes about the changes we were going to make. for qualifying – you’re always trying to make the car better but it is a bit of a gamble because you have to keep the race in mind also.
“We made the change and immediately I thought ‘this is the wrong one’ and it was my call at the end, but it was really hard. So that’s why I was behind the whole qualifying. I was making small tweaks here and there to make pace but the first lap was the best lap of the session – which was great.
“The changes that we made, I had so much understeer, the car was being lazy and wouldn’t turn corners the way I wanted. I was making small adjustments to get the car to turn. It was my cleanest lap and I’ll always remember it.
Lewis Hamilton was unable to hide his delight as he celebrated his 100th pole position in Formula One with the same unbridled joy that marked his first.
In claiming the top spot for Sunday’s Spanish Grand Prix this was a unique century for a unique driver, the first time any F1 driver has reached the century as yet another milestone fell to the world champion.
Hamilton has never chased records but it was clear from the moment he climbed from his cockpit and celebrated that this felt special. It is said a batsman reaching a ton on this form is seeing the bowler’s ball “like a beachball”.
Hamilton has his eye in and has long been wielding his car in imperious style. Flawless again, he beat Red Bull’s Max Verstappen into second by three-hundredths of a second at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya and his Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas into third.
