Hamilton gets McLaren's 150th pole position

Formula 1 2008 Champion Lewis Hamilton eased to McLaren's 150th pole position on Saturday for the Hungarian Grand Prix with a time four tenths faster than second placed Lotus's Romain Grosjean. The pole marks McLaren's return to the front of the grid after a difficult last few races which have seen them off the lead pace set by rivals Ferrari and Red Bull.
Grosjean will start ahead of current Champion Sebastian Vettel in third, with Hamilton's team-mate Jenson Button in fourth, seven tenths slower than the pole lap. 'Iceman' Kimi Raikkonen completes the top five with Fernando Alonso, Felipe Massa, Pastor Maldonado, Bruno Senna(his first time in Q3), and Nico Hulkenberg complete the top ten cars. Mark Webber was the surprise of Q2 as he failed to get into in the top 10 and starts 11th ahead of Force India's Paul di Resta.

The following seven drivers have been eliminated in Q2:
1) Webber
