SINGAPORE (Reuters) – Championship leader Lewis Hamilton stormed to pole position for the Singapore Grand Prix on Saturday, the Mercedes driver lapping the Marina Bay Street Circuit in 1:36.015 to edge out Max Verstappen in a Red Bull.

Hamilton, 30 points clear of Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel with seven rounds remaining, secured a record-extending 79th pole position of his career as his main title rival could manage only third place on the grid, 0.613 seconds behind.
