Should stand. With AP Photos. Valtteri Bottas was second, while Vettel was third. "I locked up into turn one and I never got the grip that I was looking for". Obviously we had the change for everyone but I think they are a bit harder, so for me it was pretty straightforward as I said because I was happier with the auto with that tyre. "But that's the exciting bit going into the race, I know that we will be quick but I know that the others will be quick too".

It was a record-extending 74th pole for Hamilton, and the first since the season-opener in Australia. It's easy for us adults to get stuck in our ways and they have definitely let loose and [stayed] open-minded to think of new ways to try to improve, which is great, and that's what it takes to be a winning team. Valtteri's been driving exceptionally well.

"It took everything to get this result. This is a good way to start the weekend".

In a tight intra-team battle, Bottas was just 0.040s adrift of Hamilton, giving Mercedes their first front row lockout of the 2018 season - and their fourth in five years in Barcelona.

Najib responded swiftly, saying he respects the immigration department's ruling and will remain in the country with his family. Najib also thanked his supporters who entrusted him as a leader and urged them to retain their confidence towards the party.


"Hats off to Mercedes (for the pole) but tomorrow will be a close race", he said. It's a shame, it's only four hundredths.

"The race will be interesting. Good fun", Bottas said.

"They appear to be a lot harder than previous year", he said.

Hamilton claimed his first pole position since the opening round of the season in Melbourne with a record-breaking lap of the Circuit de Catalunya on the outskirts of Barcelona.

Hamilton leads the German, also a four-times World Champion, by four points after four races but owes his advantage to a healthy slice of luck. He and Verstappen were six tenths off the pole time. "It sounds odd that you can be happy with P19, but actually I'm happy". "Then they put in some belters at the end. I tried to recover and fight for pole, but it was not enough." . Teammate Romain Grosjean is 10th on the grid. After a good showing in Baku, the Williams auto appears to have returned to its normal level. "P7 for us is really pole position", Magnussen said.

The two Red Bulls collided in Azerbaijan two weekends ago and are under close scrutiny by team bosses who could intervene if their rivalry risks overheating again in Sunday's race. Spanish drivers Kevin Magnussen of Haas and Fernando Alonso of McLaren finished seventh and eighth respectively in qualifying, while Renault's Carlos Sainz beat Romain Grosjean in the second Haas auto to finish ninth.

He said part of the problem is that many times "a lot of us drivers might agree but we know our teams won't agree". "So that's a positive thing".
