Hamilton leads Mercedes front row lock-out

F1 2018 Gets New French GP Gameplay Featuring Grosjean, Ocon and Gasly

Lewis Hamilton finally got his improved engine and put it to good use on Saturday, streaking away to a record-extending 75th career pole position at Formula One's French Grand Prix.

"I raced in the last French Grand Prix in 2008 and it is wonderful to see so many people here and all the excitement for all of us". "After the first attempt I thought "with a really awesome lap we have a chance" but P3 I'm happy with because the auto should be good in the race". And the pressure is.you can see how close it is between us all.

Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas will both be equipped with a new specification of Mercedes engine for this weekend's French Grand Prix. "It's really, really great to have this result, and a one-two". They are like, 'Oh, you can't say that.' But [it's a case of] 'No, I thought we said we're in that comfort zone, you can say what you want.' Naturally, everyone is shedding their blood, sweat and tears to make sure we win this season.

"It's going to be a close season ahead, so I'm glad we could have it in this race", stated the Finn.

Mercedes took control and Hamilton clocked the best time in Q1, which ended, as rain began to fall, with both McLarens and both Williams eliminated - a sad contrast to the pomp of the once-great British teams, when the French race was last held at the Paul Ricard Circuit 28 years ago.

Finnish team mate Valtteri Bottas, who had gone top moments earlier, had to settle for second - just 0.118 of a second slower - as the Silver Arrows locked out the front row in style.

"I was confident I could improve for the final attempt", Vettel said about his last flying lap that came up short. "But already at the beginning I tried to push hard and probably pushed a little bit too much so I lost a little and then you're playing catch-up".

Red Bull pair Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo posted the fourth- and fifth-fastest times in qualifying.

With the England football team hot favourites to secure progression to the Round of 16 at the World Cup against Panama, the country's only current F1 driver is also odds-on to win his own global content in Sunday's grand prix. "There was time left on the track but I am really happy with pole".

Alonso, fresh from his victory at the Le Mans 24 Hours, was 16th, with Vandoorne two positions further back, meaning the Belgian has still yet to edge his team-mate over one lap in 2018.

Brendon Hartley will start the race from last place after Toro Rosso had to change his Honda engine on Friday.

Hamilton questioned the Italian team's strategy, but was not sure if it was a strategic call or a mistake on the part of their title rivals. Hamilton followed and, after the first flying runs, he and Bottas topped the times before the session was red-flagged when Grosjean crashed at Turn Three.
