F1: Lewis Hamilton clinches pole position for Spanish GP

"You need to have a good start to keep your position, you need to have a great start to make positions up", he said.

"It was very close but I am very happy", Hamilton said.

"The biggest thing here is how predictable everything is". "Q1 was pretty good the vehicle was fine, we didn't have to do that much. The direction everything went is sad for formula one", Alonso said in Barcelona. It's a return to the European season at a track the teams know well, having done their winter testing here. "We've got some work to do overnight, I'm hoping it's cooler and calmer tomorrow".

"The same with the wind direction, the temperature". I don't know. It is what it is.

"Thankfully the damage is pretty light", team principal Christian Horner told Sky Sports television. "The Miami area is already host to numerous world-renown sporting events and we look forward to reaching an agreement that is a win for Miami and racing enthusiasts". "So, we saw lots of drivers going off". They've always had a quick vehicle. He and Verstappen were six tenths off the pole time. Should Ferrari engines suffer problems at this rate-once every four to five Grand Prix weekends-Ferrari-powered teams could be in for multiple grid penalties for exceeding power unit use limits. "The first four races indicate very strongly that we will see the threeway battle continue and - if anything - intensify".

"It's the same this year".

Klopp relaxed about Liverpool final match: This is our life
Your [the press] focus is only Morata , but I would like it if your focus was for the whole team. A scoreless draw with City leaves 16th place Huddersfield in decent shape with two games to go.

"I asked and we made a decision to go back to the softs and I think that was the right call". I think it's the same as always.

"It will not change anything for me".

"It was straightforward [to go back to softs] because I had such a good feeling in Q2", he added. The working range is far narrower than a year ago. "It's hard to see from the outside, but extremely proud and motivated every time you do a one-off performance".

Hamilton had seen his title rival Sebastian Vettel claim the previous three pole-positions for Scuderia Ferrari, but for this weekend's 2018 Spanish Grand Prix, Hamilton narrowly beat his team-mate Valtteri Bottas to claim his seventy-fourth pole-position.

Bottas put down an impressive marker with a best lap of one minute 18.148 seconds on the soft tyres, 0.849 faster than his team mate who won from pole past year.

Australia's Daniel Ricciardo was second fastest and just 0.133s adrift after a rollercoaster day at the Circuit de Catalunya-Barcelona, crashing in Practice 1 before rebounding to illustrate that the updated Red Bull may have the pace to take the fight directly to Mercedes and Ferrari this weekend.
