Lewis Hamilton produced a stellar final flying lap as the British ace piped crowd-favorite Sebastian Vettel to claim pole position in Nurburgring for the German GP. Vettel despite his best efforts had to settle for 2nd place right alongside the Mercedes ace on the front-row of the starting grid tomorrow as Mark Webber qualified in 3rd place to make it a good day at the office for Red Bull.
The second row is an all Lotus one as Kimi Raikkonen will line up in 4th place ahead of his teammate Romain Grosjean.
However, the Ferraris of Felipe Massa and Fernando Alonso decided to shun qualifying gains for a better strategy in the race as they qualified on the long-lasting medium tyres in 7th and 8th places respectively as Daniel Ricciardo out-qualified both of them in 6th place. Jenson Button and Nico Hulkenberg rounded off the top 10.
