German GP 2010: Vettel Grabs Pole From Alonso By Tiny Margin

Sebastian Vettel grabbed pole position for tomorrow’s German Grand Prix by the smallest of margins.  He beat Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso by just 2 thousands of a second.

Alonso had shown good form throughout the entire session and makes his first front row start of the season as he tries to get his title challenge back on track.  Team mate Felipe Massa starts in 3rd, with Mark Webber back in 4th.

Its an all McLaren 3rd row with Jenson Button just outrunning Lewis Hamilton for 5th and 6th.

Home favourite Michael Schumacher didn’t make Q3 as rookie German Nico Hulkenberg sneaked through for Williams, a team which is showing good form.

It was a bad day for Tonio Liuzzi though who smashed his Force India up early into Q1.  The crash on the start/finish straight red flagged the session and means he will start only 22nd tomorrow.  Still despite completing only one run he will be ahead of the appallingly poor Sakon Yamamoto, and Lucas di Grassi who didn’t complete a flying lap due to a gearbox problem.

We’re all set for a cracking German GP tomorrow!
