Lewis Hamilton says he “gave it absolutely everything” in Dutch Grand Prix Qualifying, but Max Verstappen “deserves the pole”.

Lewis Hamilton qualified in P2 for the British Grand Prix, only 0.038s behind Max Verstappen. After the session the Briton was complimentary of his title rival.

“Max did an amazing lap, and I was so close,” Hamilton said.

“I was trying to catch him. Obviously, with yesterday’s session missed, made a little bit difficult today, but I gave it absolutely everything. He did a fantastic lap and deserves the pole.”

With Valtteri Bottas in P3, Lewis thinks strategy will play an important element in the race tomorrow.

“It is going to be tough, it’s a difficult circuit to overtake, but, I mean, what a place for us to be racing! I think strategy will obviously come into it a lot, but we’re going to see a crowd like this.”

In the end Lewis thanked the Dutch fans for the welcome he received.

“I just want to say a big, big thank you to all the orange fans here, you know, the Dutch fans. What an amazing venue, what an amazing track.

“I really do genuinely love coming to this country and I really appreciate the welcome. There’s great sporting fans here and I love that, it’s just been good.

“I really appreciate it,” concluded the seven-time champion.
