F1: Lewis takes P1 and sets up Montreal master class

Jun 122016

There is certainly something special about Montreal for Lewis Hamilton. The Mercedes AMG PETRONAS Formula One Team driver celebrated his first victory in Formula One here in 2007. He has since gone on to win this race four times on the last eight occasions and there is reason to believe that his love affair with the French-speaking Canadian city will continue after an overwhelming sense of déjà vu as the British driver clinched his fifth pole position at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve.


Lewis wasted no time to punch in a quick flying lap early in Q3 - and it proved to be decisive, as the nine other divers were unable to beat his lap time, earning him his 53rd career pole in the process.
