Lewis Hamilton takes pole for Spanish GP with track record

Daniel Ricciardo was second and Max Verstappen third. It's also worth noting that all of the top ten apart from Alonso set their fastest Q2 time on the soft, meaning they will start the race on that tyre and aim for a one-stop strategy.

Most improved: Mercedes may have broken Ferrari's run of consecutive pole positions, but Alonso qualifying eighth is arguably the most obvious change from previous rounds.

New track record: Lewis Hamilton's pole position lap was three seconds faster than last year's pole.

The Finn's flyer of one minute and 18.148 seconds enabled him to finish nearly of nine-tenths of a second clear of Hamilton with Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel third.

Ricciardo said he was frustrated with the gap to the front. "I didn't get a great feeling on that tyre so I chose to ask to go back and I think it was the right call". Obviously we had the change for everyone but I think they are a bit harder, so for me it was pretty straightforward as I said because I was happier with the vehicle with that tyre.

"I don't know if that's... it's not going to make any difference if you make us three seconds or one-and-a-half second slower, it's not going to make the racing any better".

Frenchman Romain Grosjean rounded out the top 10 for Haas.

"In the end it's hard to say that it was enjoyable because our auto balance was very bad and it was very hard to drive, so it was hard to enjoy", Kubica said. "So that's a positive thing".
