Triple Formula One world champion Lewis Hamilton has beaten teammate Nico Rosberg to pole position at the Spanish Grand Prix in a front row sweep for dominant Mercedes.
Red Bull filled the second row, with Australian Daniel Ricciardo third and Dutch teenager Max Verstappen a stunning fourth on his debut weekend with the team after moving up from Toro Rosso.
Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen and Sebastian Vettel qualified a disappointing fifth and sixth.
Mercedes have now taken 11 poles in a row, with Rosberg aiming for his eighth successive victory on Sunday and hoping to become only the third driver to win the first five races of a season.
The German is 43 points ahead of Hamilton.
