F1: Hamilton pays tribute to Chadwick Boseman after Belgium pole position

Mercedes’ world champion Lewis Hamilton swept to another dominant pole position on Saturday at qualifying for the Belgian Grand Prix pole as faltering Ferrari slumped to a new low by only just scraping through Q1 and then getting eliminated in Q2.

Four-time world champion Sebastian Vettel and his teammate Charles Leclerc failed to make it to the top 10 Q1 shoot-out in qualifying at Spa-Francorchamps, piling more pressure on the ailing Italian marque, who have been outclassed by Mercedes and a host of other ‘lesser’ teams this season.

Hamilton’s teammate Valtteri Bottas posted the second quickest time to ensure another front-row lockout for Mercedes.

Hamilton secured his record-extending 93rd career pole position and a record sixth at Spa, and he took time out to pay tribute to ‘Black Panther’ actor Chadwick Boseman, who passed away after a cancer battle.
