Lewis Hamilton sets all time Spa track record and ties pole record.

Belgian GP: Hamilton equals Schumacher's pole record
https://www.motorsport.com/f1/news/belgian-gp-qualifying-hamilton-vettel-schumacher-945155/

Lewis Hamilton beat Formula 1 title rival Sebastian Vettel to pole
position for the Belgian Grand Prix, equaling Michael Schumacher's
record tally of 68 career poles with a sublime performance.

Hamilton impressively broke through the 1m43s barrier for the first time
in Q2 at Spa, and repeated the feat on his first run in Q3, leading
Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen and Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas by more
than three tenths of a second.

Hamilton found even more time on his second Q3 run, clinching pole with
a stunning 1m42.553s effort.

Fernando Alonso missed out on the final Q3 spot by 0.084s, despite the
efforts of teammate Stoffel Vandoorne to give him a tow along the Kemmel
Straight on Alonso's final flying lap.

Yes "No power, no power !" is a handy excuse.
