Lewis Hamilton 'silenced the myth' after out-qualifying Valtteri Bottas ahead of French GP

Lewis Hamilton says he’s ‘silenced the myth’ after outperforming team-mate Valtteri Bottas to start second on the grid ahead of the French Grand Prix, despite switching his chassis with the Finn this weekend.

Max Verstappen secured his fifth career pole position ahead of the race on Sunday, with Bottas starting third, as the championship leader looks to extend his lead at the top of the standings.

“It’s been a really hard weekend,” said the seven-time world champion, “Mentally and not physically but just trying to get the car into a happy place.
