Lewis Hamilton has claimed pole position for the Canadian Grand Prix after edging out team-mate Nico Rosberg in qualifying. Hamilton has been in scintillating form all weekend and his benchmark lap of 1:12.812 was six hundredths of a second faster than Rosbergs best effort, as Mercedes locked out the front row.It was the Brits fifth pole in Montreal and the 53rd of his career, though he has yet to convert the position to a race victory this season - and wasnt satisfied with his performance. Hamilton unhappy with his pole position lapHonestly, it wasnt great lap - but Im not sure l should admit that! the Brit told Sky Sports F1, I didnt have the same pace that l had yesterday. Sky F1s Paul di Resta breaks down Lewis Hamiltons 5th career pole position in Canada. Sebastian Vettel was less than two tenths behind the leading duo in third for Ferrari, and he seemed to have a shot at an unlikely pole after both Silver Arrows failed to improve with their final flying laps.As a driver you always feel there is a little bit more, he said. On my last lap I was very happy with the lap in general. I was maybe a little bit greedy out of Turn 10, maybe not greedy enough into Turn Six.Hamilton laughs off Massa digRed Bull have threatened Mercedes dominance in recent weeks and Daniel Ricciardo joins Vettel on the second row after out-qualifying team-mate Max Verstappen by two tenths, despite clipping the Wall of Champions on his fastest lap. They were followed by Ferraris Kimi Raikkonen.Valtteri Bottas, Felipe Massa and Nico Hulkenberg were next up, while Fernando Alonso will start the race from 10th as he secured another Q3 for McLaren. Watch as some of the drivers hit the walls of the Gilles Villeneuve Circuit during qualifying in Canada, with varying degrees of success. Jenson Button didnt quite have the same afternoon in the sister MP4-31, qualifying 12th, and complained that he gave his team-mate a tow.Alonso agreed, telling Sky F1: I took a good tow in the last run and that was enough to go into Q3... so thanks to him!The Spaniard may not have made the final shootout at all were it not for countryman Carlos Sainz becoming the Wall of Champions first victim of the weekend. The Toro Rosso driver clipped the famous wall on the exit of the final chicane before grinding up against it, causing red flags in Q2.If its a wall, you dont mind so much hitting the Wall of Champions, he told Sky Sports F1. But its still not a good feeling.Wet weather is predicted for Sundays race, which represents both a risk and an opportunity for the field.If it rains, the qualifying result is not relevant any more, Toto Wolff said on Sky F1. If its dry, you can see that the pace between the top three or four cars is pretty much the same.

There was also a disruption in Q1 after Rio Haryantos span his Manor into the barriers, with the yellow flags halting other drivers on flying laps.Renaults Jolyon Palmer, after Kevin Magnussen was unable to compete in qualifying following his P3 crash, once again couldnt make it into Q2.

That wasnt hard to do. "I set the bar so low," he said. Kipnis drove in Nick Swisher from first base with a two-out double in the seventh inning, sending the Cleveland Indians to a 5-3 win over the Kansas City Royals on Wednesday night. Kipnis, who batted just .200 with one homer and four RBIs in the seasons first month in 2013, ripped his double off Kelvin Herrera (0-1) into the gap in right-centre, deep enough to easily score Swisher, who reached on a two-out single. "That was a real big hit," Indians manager Terry Francona said. "Sometimes you need a big hit at a big time and we got it tonight." Kipnis has become big time. After shaking off his horribly slow start last season, he made his first All-Star team, batted .284 and developed into one of the ALs top all-around players. So, when he came up in another clutch situation, it wasnt surprising to any of the Indians that Kipnis came through. Kipnis signed a six-year, $52.5 million contract on opening day and hes wasted no time in living up to the deal. "I think he has less far to climb this year," Francona said. "He really dug himself a hole last year. Hes always a threat, whether its against a left-hander or right-hander. He can hit the ball all over the field or out of the ballpark. He can beat you with his legs. "I dont really look up and see what Kips batting average is, we want him hitting all the time." The Indians tacked on an important insurance run in the eighth on pinch-hitter Lonnie Chisenhalls bloop RBI single. Bryan Shaw (1-0) finished the seventh and got one out in the eighth. Cody Allen retired two, and John Axford worked the ninth for his AL-leading eighth save. Michael Bourn had three hits and two RBIs for the Indians. Bourn, Nick Swisher and Kipnis, Clevelands 1-2-3 hitters, combined for six hits and three RBIs. Salvador Perez and Mike Moustakas hit back-to-back homers in the second for Kansas City. Indians starter Justin Masterson remained winless through five starts. The staffs ace, who turned down a contract extension during spring training, allowed two earned runs and eight hits in 6 11-3 innings.dddddddddddd "Ill take as many no-decisions as come as long as were winning," he said. Down 3-2, the Indians tied it in the sixth off lefty starter Jason Vargas when Michael Brantley scored from first on two Kansas City errors. Brantley singled with one out, and broke for second with two down and Yan Gomes batting. As Brantley slid safely into second, the throw from catcher Perez skipped into centre field. Brantley hustled toward third and centre fielder Jarrod Dyson took his eye off the ball, overrunning it and letting the tying run score. "I came in too hard," Dyson said. "I should have come in and played it off the hop because I probably didnt have a shot at him anyway. I have to remind myself to slow the body down. I came in crashing like that. When you have two outs and your pitcher up there doing his thing you kind of have to settle down and not make that mistake." Moustakas gave the Royals a 3-2 lead in the sixth, when an error by second baseman Kipnis helped set up Kansas Citys unearned go-ahead run. Eric Hosmer singled and was safe at second after Kipnis dropped shortstop Asdrubal Cabreras low throw. Hosmer moved to third on a fielders choice and Moustakas delivered his two-out RBI single. Bourn atoned for a baserunning blunder with a two-run triple in the second to tie it 2-2. Perez and Moustakas connected in the second off Masterson. With one out, Perez snapped an 0-for-22 slump with a drive over the centre-field wall for his first homer. Four pitches later, Moustakas made it 2-0 with a liner into the Royals bullpen, the same place he hit a three-run shot on Tuesday in Kansas Citys 8-2 win. NOTES: Sloppy play has been one of Clevelands main problems. The Indians came in tied for the AL lead with 20 errors. "As a team, we have not played very good defence yet," Francona said. "I think we will be better. We need to be better. Were that type of team where when we play clean baseball, we generally give ourselves a chance to win. When you give a team extra outs or extra opportunities, it certainly makes it tougher." ... Indians 3B/DH Carlos Santana is in a 2-for-46 (.043) slide. ... Cleveland relievers have stranded a major league-best 91 per cent (32 of 35) of runners inherited.
