Lewis Hamilton found qualifying for the Russian Grand Prix « horrible » after a lap-time suppression saw him arrive within a second of being eliminated in Q2

Hamilton took the 96th pole position of his Formula 1 career on Saturday at the Sochi Autodrom, beating Red Bull’s Max Verstappen by more than half a second in the final stage of qualifying

But Hamilton was fortunate enough to get this far after barely crossing the line in time to score a lap in Q2 after his initial effort was rubbed

Stewards deleted Hamilton’s first lap in Q2 after he ran wide at turn 18, prompting Mercedes to bring him in and opt for a second race on the medium rubber tire instead of keep him away

A red flag caused by a fall from Sebastian Vettel forced Hamilton to abandon his second run and left him against him to get a lap time on the board with just 2m15s on the clock

Hamilton crossed the line with a second to spare before taking fourth place with his turn on the soft tire to qualify for Q3, where he then took pole position for the eighth time in 10 races

« It was horrible Heart in your mouth, throughout The first one, I had the time obviously, this is the first time I went all weekend

« I wanted to stay away and take another lap just to find a banker, but they told me to come and get new tires, then the red flag went out

« It was a real risk once we got on the next tire at the end, and eventually I start on the soft tire which is not good »

Hamilton will start ahead of Verstappen and his Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas on the grid tomorrow, but feared he would be powerless to prevent them from passing him long-term at the first braking zone on Turn 2

« It’s good to be on pole, but it’s probably the worst place to be on pole with draggier cars this year, » said Hamilton

« I’m definitely the most likely to be dragged tomorrow The guys I’m racing against they’re both on the medium tomorrow so it’s definitely going to make it tough to win the race

« But nonetheless, I’m going to stay positive, try to figure out how I can work my way through, get a good start no matter what, and we’ll see »
