Lewis Hamilton has a pit stop during the third practice session for the Formula One Malaysian Grand Prix in Sepang on March 28, 2015Peerless Lewis Hamilton waited out a torrential downpour before snatching pole position at the Malaysian Grand Prix in a wet and wild qualifying session on Saturday. The Mercedes driver and reigning world champion set a fastest time of 1min 49.834sec, ahead of Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel, after rain halted qualifying for 35 minutes. The commanding drive from Hamilton, hit by mechanical problems this week, will fuel his charge towards a second race win after he dominated the season-opener in Australia. Vettel was the day's other big winner and he whooped and hollered to his team as he seized second place from Mercedes' Nico Rosberg in the dying seconds.
