Chinese Grand Prix: Hamilton edge Vettel by 0.186 seconds

Lewis Hamilton secures pole for tomorrow’s #ChineseGP ahead of Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel who will start in second…

Mercedes Benz driver Lewis Hamilton edge Ferrari rival Sebastian Vettel by 0.186 seconds to claim the Chinese Grand Prix after clocking the fastest ever lap of the Shanghai circuit in the dying seconds of a hard-fought qualifying session on Saturday.

Mercedes team mate Valtteri Bottas was third, just one-thousandth of a second further adrift.

“I didn’t know whether we would be ahead or behind,” Hamilton told reporters.

“All I knew I could do is to just do the best lap I could possibly do and each time I went out I eked out a little bit more time.”

Hamilton’s fastest lap in Shanghai bettered Michael Schumacher’s 2004 timing by over half a second.
