After a sensational lap at the British Grand prix, Mercedes star driver Lewis Hamilton moved to within one pole position of matching Michael Schumacher’s Formula One record after driving a sensational lap at his home British Grand Prix.

His pole finish came on a drying track at Silverstone on Saturday after a persistent drizzle throughout the morning.

It was Hamilton’s 67th and brought him just one shy of the German great’s 68 career pole positions.

Hamilton’s championship-leading Ferrari rival Sebastian Vettel, who has a 20-point advantage after nine of 20 races, qualified third for Sunday’s race.

Hamilton, though, was at least half a second quicker than Ferrari’s second-placed Kimi Raikkonen and his time of one minute 26.600 seconds was so outrageously quick that many have started to say that the race is his to lose.
