Lewis Hamilton's Mercedes hasn't always been the most obedient of puppies this season, but on the long straights and fast sweeps of Silverstone, this pedigree performer shrugged off its leash, pricked back its ears and bounded to an utterly crushing pole position.
Hamilton can also retire for the evening safe in the knowledge that no-one is going to take his 67th career pole off him after the investigation into allegedly blocking Romain Grosjean came to naught. A good day all round for the Brition.
Can he make it a perfect weekend with a fifth Silverstone victory tomorrow? All the signs suggest he can, but the race-pace of the Ferraris should not be underestimated, and the great British weather is always capable of throwing a double six.
It promises to be an enthralling race.
We'll see you with all the build up from 11:30 BST.
