Mercedes AMG grabbed a one-two during the Silverstone qualifying session for the 2013 British Grand Prix.

Local favorite driver Lewis Hamilton was the fastest during Q3 this afternoon, earning the pole position with a time of 1m 29.607s. He will be accompanied on the grid by teammate Nico Rosberg who was 0.452s slower. Red Bull will start from third and fourth place with Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber who weren’t fast enough to take down Mercedes AMG who seems to be invincible during qualifications.

Another British driver had a good qualifying session as Paul di Resta climbed to fifth place, ahead of Toro Rosso's Daniel Ricciardo who was fastest during the first practice session on Friday. Adrian Sutil earned the seventh spot on tomorrow's starting grid, ahead of Lotus with Romain Grosjean in eight place and Kimi Raikkonen behind.

It was a slow day for Ferrari as only Fernando Alonso managed to qualify for Q3 but he was the slowest of all ten drivers so he'll be starting from the 10th place. Jenson Button's pace hasn't improved at all compared to the last qualifying sessions as he only managed 11th spot, ahead of Felipe Massa.
