Hamilton Storms to Canadian Grand Prix Pole to Equal Senna’s Career Total
Lewis stormed to his 65th Formula 1 pole position to equal his hero Ayrton Senna’s long-standing pole total. It is Lewis’ sixth pole position at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve and his fourth of the 2017 season. Plus, Lewis’ pole lap of 1:11.459s is the fastest ever lap of the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve.
Lewis Hamilton had this to say:
“Honestly, I’m so happy. Montreal has been very good to me over the years. It was such a close battle with the Ferraris – they have been so quick this weekend. I dug down deep… It was a great lap, a sexy lap! I can’t quite believe that it all came together so well. After such a tough time in Monaco, we learned from our mistakes. I owe this one to all the team back at the factories in Brackley and Brixworth. I was just shaking when I was presented with Ayrton’s helmet. For many of you, Ayrton was your favourite driver. He was mine too. To receive this and match his record is a great honour.”
