Lewis Hamilton set a scintillating pace to take pole position for the British Grand Prix ahead of Mercedes team-mate Nico Rosberg.
Hamilton's margin over the field was a stunning 0.452 seconds as Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber took third and fourth on the grid.
Vettel's title rivals Kimi Raikkonen of Lotus and Ferrari's Fernando Alonso could manage only ninth and 10th.
Scot Paul Di Resta was fifth ahead of Toro Rosso's Daniel Ricciardo.
It was Di Resta's career-best qualifying position and Ricciardo, a contender to replace Webber next year, equalled his own highest grid position.
Hamilton's pole was his first since the Chinese Grand Prix and it came as a result of what team boss Ross Brawn described as "a very special lap".
Vettel edged out Webber by just 0.009secs as Red Bull put themselves in a strong position for the race.
Mercedes are still concerned about their rear tyre usage, especially with higher temperatures forecasted for the race on Sunday.
