    Lewis Hamilton romped to his third pole position of the season with a sublime performance in a rain-drenched qualifying session in Shanghai on Saturday afternoon. The Mercedes star, who now has more poles than any other British driver, was over half a second quicker than Daniel Ricciardo, with the Australian's Red Bull team mate Sebastian Vettel pipping the spinning Mercedes of Nico Rosberg to third

    [​IMG]

The Mercedes driver set a 1:53.860 to comfortably lead Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo and Sebastian Vettel, while team-mate Nico Rosberg endured an error-strewn Q3 en route to fourth.
