Vettel secures pole in Hungary

Red Bull's Max Verstappen and the other Mercedes of Lewis Hamilton were over a second adrift of the German in fourth and fifth, with the latter looking especially scrappy on the red-marked rubber.

"We can't do anything in the race".

Though this doesn't tell much of his intentions after the season is over, it does give us insight into what has been an nearly completely drama-free relationship with Ferrari. "Let's see how we get going", Vettel told reporters.

Hamilton's remarks are founded on the difficulty of overtaking on the tight and twisty Hungaroring.

The 32-year-old Hamilton will have to wait until the next F1 race at Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium to have a shot at equalling the pole record.

"It has been a good track".

"I had to give it everything today", admitted the Finn.

The triple champion had been hoping to match Michael Schumacher's all-time pole record with his sixth in Hungary, a circuit where he has won five times already, and had set the fastest lap of the second phase of qualifying. "Big vibration on these tyres", he said, again, as he launched his first flying lap.

But it was in vain as Vettel took pole from Raikkonen, who produced a scorching final lap to snatch second from his Finnish compatriot Bottas.

"Nevertheless, this track is very hard to overtake, and I think that it will be very close between us and Ferrari, and this is going to be very exciting for the fans".

That seems to be reflected in the qualifying results, with Sebastian Vettel taking pole position for Ferrari and team mate Kimmi Raikkonen in second, for a Ferrari one-two start in the race tomorrow.

The Briton and Bottas both acknowledged Ferrari were clear winners in qualifying, but warned that the race today will be different. Is that really a pattern?

"We can't do anything in the race".

"It's about damage limitation tomorrow", Mercedes head of motorsport Toto Wolff said. So when you drive 110 per cent the vehicle is more on a knife edge and you are just taking it into places it doesn't want to go.

"It was, but they had the advantage". He had been quickest in Q1 and although Hamilton was top of the timing in Q2, when it mattered in the final session Vettel put in a flawless lap, exploiting a vehicle with which he was absolutely in tune.

"We had to guess a bit". We are here and we try to do our best.

"It was seamless in terms of that we didn't have any problems", he added. The vehicle was new for us and we discovered a pattern we did not see while in Monaco. "We end the day in fifth but there's clearly good pace in the auto". Front row for us is incredible.

"It's hot, it's always hot here".
