Sport - F1;Hamilton on Pole

SHANGHAI: McLaren Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton took pole position for the Chinese Grand Prix on Saturday ahead of Ferrari rivals Kimi Raikkonen and Felipe Massa.

Britain's Hamilton, who can become Formula One's youngest champion this weekend, put in a flying last lap in final qualifying to head the grid in a time of one minute 36.303 seconds.

Massa is five points behind Hamilton in the standings with BMW Sauber's Robert Kubica, who disappointingly qualified 12th, the only other driver with title ambitions.
