IN PICTURES: Saturday British Grand Prix action from Silverstone
Valtteri Bottas will start today's British Grand Prix at Silverstone on pole position, after pipping team-mate Lewis Hamilton by just 0.006 seconds!
The pair, who both race for the Brackley-based Mercedes team, lit up the Northamptonshire track in a thrilling qualifying session.
Ferrari's Charles Leclerc claimed third place.
Bottas said: “It felt really good. I've been missing the feeling being on pole. And a good performance, especially on a track like this where Lewis has been so difficult to beat.
“Again, it just reminds you why you do this, these kind of feelings."
Hamilton said his performance was “ultimately not good enough” – a mistake on his first Q3 run putting him on the back foot and leaving him with a big task on his final effort.
“I felt better today, and FP3 was good. Q1, run 1 was awesome and then it kind of fell apart from there,” explained the Briton. “It’s crazy, you have these five or six stabs at it, but it just wasn’t a good day. Frustrated with myself but it is what it is.”
Sunday's race starts at 2.15pm, with Hamilton aiming to win a record sixth British GP.
