Lewis Hamilton claimed the 40th pole position of his Formula One career at the end of a storm-hit qualifying session for the Malaysian Grand Prix that added spice to the occasion.

Thunder and lightning made for a dramatic backdrop during the initial timed run at the Sepang International Circuit before a torrential downpour unfolded midway through the second session.

After a 35-minute delay it was reigning champion Hamilton who again held sway over his rivals, but only just as the 30-year-old finished a mere 0.074secs clear of Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel, with Mercedes team-mate Nico Rosberg back in third.
