Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton will start on pole for the Formula One German Grand Prix after a disastrous qualifying session for Ferrari at Hockenheim.
The 34-year-old starts on the front row alongside Max Verstappen, with team-mate Valtteri Bottas in third and Pierre Gasly in fourth.
Both Charles Leclerc and Sebastian Vettel suffered technical faults to cap a miserable qualifying session for the Scuderia.
Leclerc had topped Q1 with a superb lap but Hamilton got the edge over the Monegasque by two tenths of a second in Q2.
Heading into the top 10 shootout, there wasn’t much between the two drivers but the fans were robbed of a close battle to the line with Leclerc also facing technical problems.
With unpredictable weather and plenty of room for overtaking, the Hockenheimring rarely fails to deliver in the action department.
