Lewis Hamilton produced a stunning lap to set pole position at the Canadian Grand Prix and equal his hero Ayrton Senna with the 65th of his career.
He is now just three more poles away from equalling Schumacher’s all-time F1 record of 68.
Hamilton ended the session 0.330 seconds quicker than title rival Sebastian Vettel of Ferrari after a series of blistering laps on a track where he has won five times in nine races.
After the session, Hamilton was presented with one of Senna’s old helmets, a gift from the late Brazilian’s family for equalling his record.
Valtteri Bottas was third-fastest and Kimi Raikkonen came in 4th.
Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo were within striking distance of Bottas and Raikkonen on pace.
