Hamilton takes Canadian GP pole


Lewis Hamilton delivered a devastating last lap to claim a second successive pole for Sunday’s Canadian Grand Prix. The McLaren driver clocked one minute 17.886 seconds to better Robert Kubica’s mark for BMW Sauber by more than half a second. Kimi Raikkonen lines up third for Ferrari alongside Renault’s Fernando Alonso, who did well to qualify fourth. Ferrari desperately tried to close down the world championship leader in the dying minutes but, though they were fast through the first two sectors, they could not match the McLaren man’s pace. Nico Rosberg, who was fastest in final practice, claimed fifth spot ahead of Ferrari’s Felipe Massa and McLaren’s Heikki Kovalainen.
