Lewis Hamilton took pole in an exciting, wet Belgian Grand Prix qualifying on Saturday.
The Brit beat out his title rival Sebastian Vettel who will join him on the front row, while Force India’s Esteban Ocon produced a shock and will start third with his teammate Sergio Perez on fourth.
As the cars began to prepare the first flying laps in the top 10 shoot-out, the rain poured down and caused chaos.
Hamilton came out on top by 0.726 seconds, while the Force Indias of Ocon and Perez locked out the second row after timing the conditions right – just days after the team were rescued from going out of business.
Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen lost out in the pits, as did Red Bull.
