It was the fifth pole for Mercedes in 2013 in the eight races so far.

“So when you pull it together, it’s a great car and obviously very quick," Hamilton said. "Each weekend I’m working as hard as I can. Each weekend it does feel like it’s improving a little bit. We made another improvement on the brakes this weekend, which is another step in the right direction, so I hope we can continue going forwards.”

Hamilton has not had the race pace yet to score a win with his best finishes being third three times.

His teammate Nico Rosberg will roll of from second position on Sunday. Championship leader Sebastian Vettel will start third for Red Bull Racing with his teammate Mark Webber in fourth. Paul di Resta will start fifth for Force India with Daniel Ricciardo in sixth for Toro Rosso. Adrian Sutil starts seventh for Force India with the Lotus pair of Romain Grosjean and Kimi Raikkonen in eighth and ninth. Fernando Alonso will start tenth for Ferrari.

The McLaren duo of Jenson Button and Sergio Perez didn't get out of Q2 and will start 11th and 14th. Felipe Massa will start 12th for Ferrari.

The British Grand Prix can be seen at 11:30 a.m. ET on The NBC Sports Network on Sunday.
