Hamilton snatches pole, ends Red Bull's run

Montreal: McLaren's Lewis Hamilton timed his final run to perfection to snatch pole position for the Canadian Formula One Grand Prix and shatter Red Bull's run of supremacy. The pole was Hamilton's third in a row in Montreal, which was left off last year's Formula One calendar.

With barely seconds to spare and hardly any fuel left in his car's tank, the Briton roared around the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in one minute 15.105 seconds to end Red Bull's hopes of an eighth pole in a row.

Australia's Mark Webber, the championship leader who had started on pole in the three previous races, had to settle for a share of the front row after posting the second quickest time. Webber's German teammate Sebastian Vettel was third quickest with Spain's Fernando Alonso fourth for Ferrari.

Good day

Force India had a delightful day with both its drivers finishing in the top 10. Vitantonio Liuzzi came sixth while Adrian Sutil was ninth.

The results (final qualifying session): 1. Lewis Hamilton (McLaren) 1:15.105, 2. Mark Webber (Red Bull) 1:15.373, 3. Sebastian Vettel (Red Bull) 1:15.420, 4. Fernando Alonso (Ferrari) 1:15.435, 5. Jenson Button (McLaren) 1:15.520, 6. Vitantonio Liuzzi (Force India) 1:15.648, 7. Felipe Massa (Ferrari) 1:15.688, 8. Robert Kubica (Renault) 1:15.715, 9. Adrian Sutil (Force India) 1:15.881, 10. Nico Rosberg (Mercedes) 1:16.071 .
