On a sweltering and sometimes breezy day in southern France, the defending four-time world champion - who trails rival Sebastian Vettel of Ferrari by a point in the title race - produced a best lap in one minute and 32.231 seconds to outpace the Finn by 0.140 seconds. "It's really, really great to have this result, and a one-two".
As the F1 Grand Prix Circus returns to France for the first time in a decade, it's Lewis Hamilton on pole after qualifying, alongside team mate Bottas. He finished the race in Canada fifth, and saw Vettel turn a 14-point deficit into a one-point lead with a victory.
"I was confident I could improve for the final attempt", Vettel said about his last flying lap that came up short. Let's see if we can start from there tomorrow. In my lifetime it's not been great for us, but we have a good team and England deserve at some time to win the World Cup.
