Hamilton secured a last-gasp pole.

Lewis Hamilton delivered an emphatic performance in front of his home crowd to secure pole position for Sunday’s British Grand Prix.

Hamilton, who trails his Mercedes team-mate Nico Rosberg by 11 points in the championship, had his first lap deleted by the stewards for exceeding track limits.

But the fired-up Briton returned to the Silverstone circuit to set an even quicker time to leave Rosberg trailing in his wake.

Rosberg will line up alongside his team-mate on the front row for Sunday’s race but he was one third of a second slower than Hamilton.

Red Bull secured the second row with Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo third and fourth on the grid.
