"I can't believe we're at 100," Hamilton said after qualifying. "It's down to the men and women back at the factory; it's been a dream to work with these guys. Who would have thought at the end of 2012 we'd be at 100? I'm ecstatic. It's like my first."
Hamilton, 36, secured his first pole at the Canadian Grand Prix in 2007 when he drove for McLaren. He won that race for the first Formula 1 victory of his career.
