BAKU, Azerbaijan (AP) Lewis Hamilton moved to second on the all-time list for Formula One pole positions when he used a brilliant late surge to beat Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas at the Azerbaijan Grand Prix on Saturday.
Bottas led qualifying and set an even quicker time on his final lap, only for Hamilton to beat him by nearly half a second.
"There was a lot of pressure with a minute left. It was all or nothing," Hamilton said. "That was one of the most exciting laps I've had all year."
