Lewis Hamilton lands another blow against Nico Rosberg as he surges to Silverstone pole

Lewis Hamilton delivered an emphatic performance in front of his home crowd to secure pole position for Sunday's British Grand Prix.
Hamilton, who trails his Mercedes team-mate Nico Rosberg by 11 points in the championship, had his first lap deleted by the stewards for exceeding track limits.
But the fired-up Briton returned to the Silverstone circuit to set an even quicker time to leave Rosberg trailing in his wake.
Rosberg will line up alongside his team-mate on the front row for Sunday's race but he was one third of a second slower than Hamilton.
Red Bull secured the second row with Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo third and fourth on the grid.
