Hamilton content with second: 'He deserves pole'

Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen is a familiar sight on the front row of the grid and that's the case again for tomorrow's Dutch Grand Prix. The Mercedes driver qualified in P2, behind the Dutchman, and was only 0.038 seconds behind.

Despite finishing behind Verstappen, Hamilton was still content with his performance in qualifying, telling Sky Sports, "Max did an amazing lap and I was so close. I was trying to catch him. With yesterday's session missed, it made it difficult of a day but I absolutely gave it everything."

Hamilton went on to praise Verstappen, adding, "he did a fantastic job and deserves pole. It's going to be tough. It's a difficult track to overtake on but what a place to be racing. The strategy will come into place."
