As beelsebob has said before, the McLaren this year seems to enjoy the tracks where the setup calls for a high wing angle - the U shaped channels feeding the rear wing nicely. McLaren is back to their days of being strong at technical twisty circuits, with good mechanical grip.

He also was out on the best timing in that he crossed the line with 4 seconds to spare before the lights turned red. That gave him 3 flying laps while the others had 2. Crucial, as the track was drying and so was just continuing to get faster. His 2nd lap however, was good enough for pole ahead of Vettel by 1 tenth already. His final lap (shown above) out qualified Vettel by a second.
It was watching magic. I just watched live timing in awe. Hulkenberg set a string of super laps. He set an outlap with purple sectors 2 and 3, and then had 9 purple sectors in a row (3 triple-purple laps)
