Hungarian Grand Prix 2012: Hamilton on pole for McLarenSat, 28 Jul 2012 00:00:00 -0700
In a dominant display at the Hungaroring. Lewis Hamilton has put McLaren on pole for tommorow’s Hungarian Grand Prix.
We said after last week’s German Grand Prix that it looks like McLaren has found the speed that’s been eluding them lately, and if Hamilton’s qualifying for tomorrow’s Grand Prix at the Hungaroring is anything to go by they’ve not only found the speed they’d lost but a bit more too.
Hamilton was dominant at the Hungaroring in every session and crushed the opposition with a stunning lap in final qualifying, a lap almost half a second quicker than second place Grosjean in the Lotus, to clinch his third pole in Hungary.
Behind Hamilton and Grosjean sit Sebastian Vettel in the Red Bull and Jenson Button in the second McLaren, but the Red Bull of Mark Webber lurks back in 11th despite Webber being fastest in final practice.
Third row see the Lotus of Kimmi Raikkonen in fifth alongside Fernando Alonso in sixth with Massa in the second Ferrari having a better day for seventh spot.
Pastor Maldonado managed to give Williams a fourth row sport alongside Massa and the top ten is rounded out by Bruno Senna in the second Williams in ninth spot Nico Hulkenberg in the Fore India in tenth.
If the rain holds off tomorrow we could see a very strong McLaren show.
