BARCELONA (AFP) - Lewis Hamilton produced a stunning qualifying lap to edge out Mercedes team-mate Nico Rosberg on Saturday to take pole position for the Spanish Grand Prix.

This was Hamilton's fourth pole of the year as he aims for his fourth win from the opening five races.

Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo will start from the second row after posting the third quickest time with Williams' Valteri Bottas fourth quickest.

Defending world champion Sebastian Vettel will start back in the fifth row after his Red Bull packed up at the beginning of the final Q3 session.
