    Another great lap from Hamilton to follow the impressive one 7 days ago. Seems distant from his aforementioned braking issues and putting the Mercedes on pole around a track like Nurburgring, which has a higher percentage spent braking than Silverstone, vindicates just that. Coming into the race, I don’t think tyre wear will be the concern for Mercedes, the concern will be their actual pace relative to the Red Bull.

    Without a doubt the best qualifying session for Lotus, namely Grosjean, who’s been driving well this weekend so far it must be said. They definitely look in better shape compared to Canada and Silverstone and could pick up a fair amount of points should one keep their nose clean and not fall back at the start.

    Qualifying as a whole was pretty close I think, one of the closest this season, especially in Q1 and Q2 and that’s virtue to the kevlar tyres and wayward track conditions playing their parts.

      What’s the deal with the kevlar tyres? How would they equalise the performance of the cars?
      Actually, I was shocked by the similarities among the lap times throughout qualifying. I mean, Mercedes certainly blundered with Rosberg, but did you notice that he missed Q3 with a time that was just half a second slower than P1 (Massa)? That’s crazy. I don’t think it has ever happened before.

    Great lap from Hamilton, looking forward to an epic battle between him and Seb tomorrow.

    Webber drops 5 places at the start, Grosjean crashes, Massa yields – P5 for Alonso. Considering his podium positions from the back of the top 10, he’ll win this 100%.

    Everybody saying that Ferrari´s strategy will yield a fail is in for a rude awakening. Sure, they will have a tought time at the start, but those tyres will last longer. I predict a prime-prime-option strategy and a fight at the end for the lead!! It´s going to be an epic one for sure!!

    So 3 poles for the Trio of Sebastian Vettel, Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton.

    After missing both practice sessions on Friday, Bianchi qualified roughly 1 second faster than Chilton. I certainly hope that Lotus are eyeing him as a replacement for Kimi, or Ferrari plan to give him Massa’s seat.

    Alonso was lucky not to get hit with a grid drop after he seemed to impede Webber in Q3.

    As far as the start is concerned, are the drivers starting from the odd side of the grid at any advantage over the drivers starting from the even side of the grid

    Daniel Ricciardo is on it
