The Mercedes driver achieved the best time in qualifying and will command the starting grid.
This Saturday, Lewis Hamilton reached 90 poles in his career in Formula 1 and will start first in the Hungarian Grand Prix, third date of the big top. The Briton was not only the fastest, but also broke the track record, a sign of how well Mercedes cars have been rolling.
Championship leader Valtteri Bottas will start second, while Racing Point’s Canadian Lance Stroll will be third, ahead of his squadmate, Mexico’s Sergio Perez.
Ferrari did not perform well and will be on the third line of play with Sebastian Vettel and Monegasque Charles Leclerc. Recall that the race will be this Sunday and will be scheduled at 70 laps for a route of 306.6 kilometers.
