“I don’t really feel like I can compute it right now.

“It’s a huge number.

“I don’t know how I’m supposed to feel but I am excited it’s so close and it felt amazing.

“Qualifying is so special.

“When you come across that line and find you are just ahead.

It’s such a big number it’s hard to express just how crazy and amazing it is.”

Former team-mate Jenson Button said:

“Lewis has always been absolutely stunning when it comes to qualifying.

“From his first race in Formula 1 until now, it has definitely been a strength of his.

“It’s in the race that he has improved over the years – his understanding of a race car and getting from A to B as quick as possible.”

The closest rival to Hamilton is former champion Michael Schumacher scored 68 poles in his career.
