Lewis Hamilton burned some serious rubber in the third qualifying session of the Chinese Grand Prix on Saturday, clocking the fastest lap on the Shanghai circuit, 1:31.678.

The Mercedes driver’s outstanding final flying lap in Q3 was enough to beat title rival Sebastian Vettel of Ferrari, who came in 0.186 seconds behind the Brit to share the front row.

This was the sixth pole in Shanghai for Hamilton. It was also Mercedes’ 75th pole in 150 Grands Prix.

Hamilton’s teammate Valtteri Bottas rounded up the top three, while Kimi Raikkonen ensured the front two rows are both Mercedes-Ferrari.

Red Bull Racing’s Daniel Ricciardo came in fifth, Williams’ Felipe Massa was sixth, Nico Hulkenberg of Renault was seventh, and Force India’s Sergio Perez was eighth. Toro Rosso’s Daniil Kyvat came in ninth and Williams’ Lance Stroll rounded up the top 10.
