(cafetheology.org) – The record is set: Lewis Hamilton, with his 68th pole position at the Belgian Grand Prix in 2017, equaled Michael Schumacher in the Formula 1 with record holder. The Briton was in a class of his own in qualifying and also clearly pointed out team-mates Valtteri Bottas. In 1: 42.553 minutes he managed a new track record, which no one could beat. Together with the new Mercedes engine, he created a combination that was simply not to be beat. Even his bosses go the superlatives when it comes to describing what constancy Hamilton is hailed as a "Hammertime" Rounds out of the hat. "He really has a super day and has always been better, and if you win so much self-confidence, you can also get a round, that's what he really deserves," says Toto Wolff. Niki Lauda adds, "RTL ':" The Lewis took a round today, as he knows it. He did everything perfectly, great performance! " (The Formula 1 qualifying session was at Spa Franchorchamps) Hamilton leads Bottas in sector 2 Somewhat surprisingly, Mercedes is also able to turn the new engine into qualifying, which is reflected by the superior finishes of the silver arrows in the first sector. Mercedes took Ferrari here up to four tenths of a second, on the fastest lap were still their two. Seemingly, Ferrari still had some spare parts for the very last attempt. Mercedes scratched the 30-second mark, Vettel did not come out over 30.236 seconds even in the last lap. (Result of qualifying for the Grand Prix of Belgium 2017) But Hamilton was at the same time in his own league. He mumbled up his team colleague Valtteri Bottas for 0.541 seconds, most of them in the relevant second sector between Les Combes and Stavelot. With 44,173 to 44,648 seconds, he showed who is the chief pilot in the silver cockpit. The Pouhon curve he only drove with a short lupfer – it will not be long before this link curve is full. "This is totally wrong, I have not experienced such a thing in my entire Formula One season yet!", The new competitor radiates at the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps. Bottas pays tribute to seven, "Lewis was just perfect." How dominant he was on this day, he showed in Q2: He drove the fastest time in the first race, despite a huge crossbar in the Paul Frere curve. He could improve the time again later. Nothing and no one had grown to him that day, nor the vibrations he complained about in the run-up to his Q3 round. He drove fastest in two out of three sectors. In Sector 3, Sebastian Vettel was able to take advantage of Kimi Raikkonen's shadows and was three hundredths of a second quicker than the Polesetter – but still 0.242 seconds slower. For Hamilton, pole position number 68 made a dream come true: "It's one of mine I have the best job in the world, I am just grateful, after the first sector, the ad showed that I was a tenth of a second faster I made in the second and third sector. " He did not hit the second section like Q2 on his first Q3 round, but he was fastest. In the end, he took another 0.4 seconds in the crucial section, which secured him the pole. It was important to him, as usual, to thank all the fans, his team and finally the person who gave him greetings From the Schumacher family – Ross Brawn: "He is a big contributor to the team and to our successes, and I must thank him and my team very much." He also thanked the Schumacher family for a message, which he gave over to Brawn (more about this during the day) .Bottas confused: Where is the grip? Valtteri Bottas, on the other hand, must be clear as a loser. Half a second behind their own team mate with the same material are actually indiscutable – even if it is the probably best driver over a round since Ayrton Senna. Its bosses already make it clear that they are not satisfied. For now, Hamilton is vulnerable to a Vettel attack on the way to Les Combes in the first round. "It would have been better if we had Valtteri in second place, but it's the same," says Toto Wolff.Bottas lost ground on Hamilton in all sessions in the second sector. In the meantime, he was able to minimize the loss to two or three tenths of a second, but in the end he could not back up to Hamilton in the second section and is back in just half a second. "Valtteri has not been happy with the handling of the car for the entire weekend," says Niki Lauda, ​​adding, "Sky'.Bottas added:" For some reason, I have trouble here, I was not able to get into the whole weekend But I think it's a good idea to get a position to fight around the pole position, which confuses me a bit, the balance of the car feels really good, but it simply lacks grip and I lose a lot of time in the fast corners But I'm not sure if it's a good race, but it's a good thing, but I'm not sure if it's a good race.
