May 14, 2016

BARCELONA, Spain (AP) Lewis Hamilton edged Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg to win the pole position for the Spanish Grand Prix on Saturday.

Hamilton trailed Rosberg all weekend until he qualified nearly three-tenths of a second faster than his teammate at the Barcelona track.

Daniel Ricciardo of Red Bull was third, just ahead of new teammate Max Verstappen, who was making his team debut after a controversial driver switch that sent Daniil Kvyat back to Toro Rosso.

Kimi Raikkonen of Ferrari will start fifth, and teammate Sebastian Vettel sixth.
