Lewis Hamilton prevailed in a tight battle with Formula 1 leader Sebastian Vettel to snatch pole position on Saturday for the British Grand Prix.

It's the fourth consecutive pole position for Hamilton at Silverstone, his sixth overall on the track, and his 50th for Mercedes.

Vettel, who leads Hamilton by one point going into the 10th of 21 races, was faster than Hamilton until the British driver went again to finish 0.044 ahead.
