US Qualification Result. Hamilton makes it two in a row

For the second consecutive race Lewis Hamilton edged out McLaren team mate Fernando Alonso to take pole position here at Indianapolis on Saturday afternoon. Alonso made the running in the first two sessions of qualifying, but Hamilton settled the issue with a lap of 1m 12.331s in the third, when Alonso’s best was 1m 12.500s.

The Englishman’s car required an engine change last night due to an assembly problem but he will not receive a grid place penalty as Friday engines don't count. He described his two quickest laps in Q3 as ‘perfect’.
