Advantage Hamilton As He Takes Fuji Pole

Lewis Hamilton seems to have gained the upper hand in the title race, taking pole position for tomorrow’s Japanese Grand Prix at the Fuji Speedway.

He edged out Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen, who had led most of Q3.

Felipe Massa languishes down in 5th, with Heikki Kovalainen and Fernando Alonso filling in the gap.

It was dry and not wet! Amazingly enough, it was nice to see the track being used at full speed rather than with water-ski’s!

Also, if you have a look at the results, note how team mates seem very close to each other if not next to each other on the grid.  F1 Hierachy?
