The Spaniard clinched his maiden F1 pole ahead of his 150th career start in a dramatic wet qualifying, beating Max Verstappen by 0.072s. 

Verstappen, who was booed by some sections of the Silverstone crowd after qualifying, suffered a spin early into Q3, while title rival Charles Leclerc also spun in the final segment of qualifying but was still able to clinch third place.

With Sergio Perez taking fourth place, Lewis Hamilton led the home favourites in fifth place but believed he could have fought for the front row for Mercedes. 

Hamilton still qualified ahead of McLaren’s Lando Norris and Alpine’s Fernando Alonso, with Mercedes team-mate George Russell down in eighth place.

Zhou Gunayu made his second consecutive Q3 appearance with ninth place for Alfa Romeo, while Nicholas Latifi made his first Q3 entry of the season to take 10th place for Williams.
