Lewis Hamilton Benefits From More Ferrari Troubles to Take Germany Pole

Formula 1’s German Grand Prix has seen temperatures upward of 100 degrees Fahrenheit, a condition that was trouble for Mercedes in Austria, but issues for Ferrari opened the front row as Lewis Hamilton took his fourth pole of the season and 87th of his career.

Max Verstappen was second, getting on the front row for the second time in 2019. He will start the race on the quicker soft tires compared to Hamilton and third place Valtteri Bottas, who will start on mediums.

Pierre Gasly set the fourth quickest time ahead of Kimi Raikkonen in fifth, the highest-qualified car that is powered by Ferrari.

In Q1, there was drama straight away for Ferrari; Sebastian Vettel reported a loss of power on his out lap before setting a time. The team tried to fix the issue before the end of Q1 but then called it quits with five minutes left in the session. Barring any grid penalties from the bottom five, Vettel has been bitten by qualifying demons yet again and will start his home grand prix from 20th on the grid.

The German Grand Prix will see lights out at around 9:10 a.m. ET on Sunday, July 28. Hamilton is the defending race winner.

  1. I almost felt sorry for Ferrari but then I remembered the advantages they had in the past and the feeling passed. Shoulda happened to Schu and given Rubens a chance.
