Lewis Hamilton Not a Fan of 'Confusing' Paul Ricard Circuit

  • Hamilton takes pole as Sainz claims 7th and Alonso suffers

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.

F1's rising French star Charles Leclerc put in an impressive qualifying performance in front of his home crowd, securing eighth on the grid in his Sauber.

Heavy rain kept cars mostly in their garages during Saturday's final practice, when Bottas topped the timesheet.

"We were relatively fast today, in the long runs we looked a bit up and down so definitely a bit of work to do tonight, but not a bad Friday", commented the Australian.

There was more gloom at McLaren, with last weekend's Le Mans 24 Hours victor and double world champion Fernando Alonso managing only the 16th best time.

New Zealander Brendon Hartley spun his Toro Rosso to set the tone before Frenchman Esteban Ocon spun his Force India and both Saubers followed suit. I remember the last race at Paul Ricard in 1990, but I never got the chance to compete.

Vettel returned to the pits for a new front wing while Bottas limped back on three wheels and a rim with the remains of the tyre flailing.
