Lewis is leading charge on Nico; SPORTS LOG.
Lewis Hamilton says he had no option but to seal pole for today's Spanish Grand Prix as he bids to derail F1 front runner Nico Rosberg.
German Rosberg, who starts next to his Mercedes pal on the front row, has a 43-point lead over Hamilton after winning all four of this season's grands prix.
Hamilton's title defence has been blighted by mechanical problems but he blitzed his title rival by nearly three-tenths of a second in qualifying.
The Brit said: "You can't overtake here so pole is the only option. Issues have got in the way but I am focused."
