Lewis Hamilton struck a huge psychological blow in the Formula One title race Saturday with a sizzling qualifying drive to take pole position for the Japanese Grand Prix. The Briton, who leads Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel by 34 points with five races left, steered his Mercedes F1 team car to yet another front row position. A three-time race winner in Japan, Hamilton’s dominant qualifying performance dented Vettel’s fading title hopes after the German set the early pace in Friday’s rain-hit practice. Vettel had initially led the driver’s standings at the start of the Formula One season but he has suffered a dip in his performance during the middle stages of the season. (Video credit: SNTV)
