Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen narrowly beat McLaren's Fernando Alonso to pole position for the European Grand Prix on Saturday, but the talking point of qualifying was the accident that befell championship leader Lewis Hamilton.

The Englishman suffered a front-right wheel failure on the approach to Turn Eight and at scarcely diminished speed the McLaren bounced over the gravel trap before impacting hard into the tyre wall.
