Analysis: Lewis Hamilton’s sensational Chinese Grand Prix Pole

In this video we go on board with Lewis Hamilton for his pole lap around the sensational Shanghai International Circuit for the Chinese Grand Prix, Round 2 of the 2017 Formula 1 World Championship.

After losing the first race of the year in Australia to the charging Ferrari of Sebastian Vettel, Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes showed they are more than keen to set the record straight by storming to the pole by just over a tenth of a second in China.

Lewis Hamilton became just the second man in history after Aryton Senna to achieve six consecutive pole positions. Coincidentally, this pole position was also Hamilton’s 6th in China.

Rain is predicted for the race on Sunday and running in the clear air from pole position might be crucial to avoid the promised calamity in the mid-field.

The Chinese Grand Prix will take place at 2pm local time on the 9th of April.
