Hamilton takes pole position for Montreal!

Wow. Lewis Hamilton earned his first ever F1 pole in qualifying at the Canadian Grand Prix, setting a laptime four-tenths of a second faster than his teammate.

The other surprise: while Sato wasn't able to keep his place from practice three, Nick Heidfield put his BMW on the second row of the grid by qualifying third, separating the Mercedes-McLarens from the Ferraris, who qualified in fourth and fifth.

It's gonna be some race tomorrow!

Damn good lap from Hamilton he was frighteningly committed in that last chicane - it was like seeing Juan Pablo Montoya's '02 pole lap again.

I wonder whether he or Alonso is fuelled heavier...
