F1 German Grand Prix: Hamilton gets the pole, Ferrari with big problems

Lewis Hamilton achieved his 87th pole position during the qualifying session for the 2019 German Grand Prix at the Hockenheim circuit, being faster than Dutchman Max Verstappen by 0,346 seconds and 0,362 seconds faster than his teammate Mercedes Valterri Bottas. Both Ferrari drivers, however, experienced mechanical problems, which made their qualification sessions one to be forgotten.

“I do not know how we did this today. I’m not sure what happened to the Ferrari drivers. They were fast throughout the weekend. Our car felt great, but the Ferrari was on a different level. Time would have been competitive against Leclerc’s if he had competed. The first round of the session was, however, the best,” Hamilton said after qualifying.

Charles Leclerc, who will start from 10th place on the grid after a problem did not allow him to make another run in the Q1 part of qualifying, said, “I do not know if we had the same problem as Sebastian, but it’s a shame. We’ll try to understand what happened. Difficult for the whole team, but tomorrow will be a better day. I felt very good today and the weekend in this car. It’s a great shame that ends this way. ”

Sebastian Vettel, his teammate, however, will start from the last position on the grid in his home Grand Prix due to the problem he suffered in Q1.

After the session, it was clear that the Ferrari’s did suffer from different problems as Vettel’s withdrawal from the session was due to an airflow problem to the turbo and Leclerc’s not going out again in Q1 was caused by a malfunction of the fuel delivery system on his Ferrari engine.

Another shocking fact is that Lando Norris (McLaren) was eliminated in Q1. McLaren having had a good run of qualifying over the last races did not do particularly well in Hockenheim. Lando will be starting from 16th place on the grid for the race.
