Hamilton sets himself up for fifth F1 title with USGP pole

Lewis Hamilton took a big step towards clinching his fifth Formula One world championship after putting his Mercedes on pole position at the U.S. Grand Prix with Ferrari rival Sebastian Vettel starting fifth. The Briton, who will become only the third driver to win at least five titles if he scores eight points more than Vettel, will share the front row with the German’s Finnish team mate Kimi Raikkonen. Vettel qualified second fastest, and just 0.061 slower than Hamilton, but has a three-place grid drop after failing to slow sufficiently while red flags were being waved in Friday practice. The pole was a record-extending 81st for Hamilton and his ninth of the season.
