F1 Spanish GP: Lewis Hamilton extends his Championship lead over Red Bull rival Max Verstappen

Lewis Hamilton will hope to extend his early season lead over Red Bull rival Max Verstappen in the Spanish Grand Prix on Sunday.

The Brit went fastest around the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya in Saturday’s qualifying session to claim the 100th pole position of his F1 career, narrowly beating Verstappen by just 0.036seconds. Hamilton’s Mercedes team-mate Valtteri Bottas finished third.

The seven-time World Champion, who is eyeing up overtaking F1 legend Michael Schumacher for the most titles of any driver in the history of the sport, is looking to build on his Portuguese Grand Prix victory last week.
