Reigning World Champion Lewis Hamilton claimed his fifth Hungarian Grand Prix pole position and the 47th of his Formula One career, while his Mercedes teammate and closest championship challenger Nico Rosberg qualified second to complete a front row lockout for the Silver Arrows once against this weekend. Today's result means that Mercedes has now taken pole at all 10 Grands Prix thus far in 2015.
A delighted Hamilton, who produced an incredible 1:22.020 lap in Q3 shared after his qualifying run, "It's been a good weekend so far. I've generally had really good experiences here. I love the city, love the weather, love the track. It's such a great track to drive - grippy in these conditions and you really can throw the car around like a go-kart. It's great to be on pole - but me and Nico wouldn't be here if it wasn't for the fantastic work done by the team to give us this car. A big thanks to all of them. The work isn't done on a Saturday, of course. It's been a great start - in fact I can't remember having such a strong performance all the way through. But anything can happen on that run down to turn one and through the race. I'm feeling confident in myself, confident in the car and confident in Mercedes, so let's see how it goes."
