Yay Hamilton broke the record for number of poles.

And this is not the finish yet.
And the conditions in which the record was set only emphasizes the class of Hamilton.
This is in contrast to those, who say that Hamilton only is lucky
He is lucky!
He's lucky it rained so he could dominate hard!
F1 2017, although I've enjoyed many of the races this season, is a very long way from being a golden age.
Anyway, back to the race, I was out for qualie and glad I wasn't sitting about waiting for it to start. Expect Hamilton to run away with it tomorrow as the Force India and Williams hold up those behind. Maybe for 10 laps we will have some excitement and then the race will wither away and we will be sitting watching tyres being as the most exciting thing on offer.
"good things come to those who wait" wait and wait and wait & wait some more. but it was easily my favourite qualifying in yrs. because i love it went drivers are on the edge, where the drivers ability counts for more than cars pace. undoubtedly outstanding lap from Lewis to be 1.1secs clear in them conditions & that field is highly impressive.
but for me lewis isnt the star today. because have to hand it to next generation verstappen, ocon, vandoorne & stroll all highly impressive. i know alot of have bashed stroll this season but the guy has talent undoubtedly just got to give him time. as you cant fluke that sort of performance in wet
More races in the season is larger psychological and physical stress for drivers.
And of course everything is relative.
Where are the others, whose statistics of pole positions are comparable with Hamilton?
Even Vettel still very far away from him.
Pole position - Wikipedia
Michael - 91 and 40
If another British driver like Jenson, would've achieved what Lewis had regarding pole positions, rest assured olegg the compliments and congratulation would be flowing,
I've not heard anything but Hamilton having a pole record for the last two weeks! The "compliments and congratulation" has been half way to nauseating.
Every pole is in an attempt to win the race. Every pole. Hamilton as 2nd for wins is more important and impressive than 1st for poles.
It will all depend on what machinery they all have.
The record I think it would be unique for him to keep is that of winning a race in each of the seasons he's competed in. That is astonishing.
Vettel might have enough time in his career left now to beat those records unless he somehow keeps winning with Ferrari and manages to prolong his stay without being screwed by the politics within Maranello
