First watch this short quote from Hamilton after his qualifying run.
OK, so Hamilton was more excited than a 14 year old boy touching a boob for the first time but rightly so! Hamilton made love to his car like Ali G busting a rhyme. It paid off too, Hamilton out qualified Button by more than a second! Hamilton slapped his bitch all the way to second on the grid, lining up next to the incumbent Nurburgring champion Webber.
A distraught Vettel rounded out the top three, ending his 14 race run on the front row. Suggesting the change in the Pirelli tyres to be the reason for bridging the gap with Vettel, Webber said; "Looks like everything is coming up Milhouse, mate!"
News at the back of the field, Liuzzi will take a 5 place grid penalty due to an unscheduled gearbox change. Fortunately for HRT, the penalty will mean HRT will be starting on the second row when F1 goes to the Hungaroring in a weeks time!
Michael Schumacher spent more time on the grass than on the road during qualifying and was lucky to qualify 10th for the race, over a second down from future champion Nico Rosburg. Concerns are now at fever point as to Schumacher's ability to race at the top level at his age. The workload inside the car with Formula 1's modern features is most likely to blame.
HRT dropout, Karun Chandhok, made his first race appearance for Lotus this weekend raising speculation as to why Trulli is not in his car. Suggestions that it is financial are yet to be confirmed while another possible answer could be with Trulli's criticism of this years Lotus. Did Trulli tell Lotus to take their car and shove it? Trulli remains on hand in Germany to help Chandhok.
Lastly, Australian Daniel Ricciardo failed to extract any performance from his HRT, coming within 0.02 of his team mate Liuzzi. These two will swap sides of the grid for the race due to Liuzzi's gearbox change. Can Ricciardo make a pass or two into the first turn?
Crack F1's predictions for the race, Vettel 1st, Hamilton 2nd, Webber 3rd.
