Hamilton Takes Pole

Lewis Hamilton described his pole position winning lap as one of his best ever at Barcelona circuit today.

While his team mate Jenson Button struggled setting up a car with alternate understeer and oversteer, Hamilton seized the moment to lead the grid in front of Pastor Maldonado and Fernando Alonso.

Alonso felt he had 'overachieved' and reached the absolute maximum of the car.  His team mate Massa could not reach the top ten.

The two Lotus Renaults of Grosjean and Raikkonen were fourth and fifth ahead of Sergio Perez.

Then came the German trio of  Rosberg, Vettel and Schumacher with Kobayashi completing the top ten.

This marked the 150th McLaren pole position.
