Germany 2008 - Qualifying - Setting up the grid for tomorrow's race in Hockenheim

Published by Mr. C

The rain held off for this mornings earlier practice session, but will it arrive before or during qualifying?

It doesn't appear to bother the McLaren's what the weather will be though, they've topped all three practice sessions this weekend and look fast in any condition. On a dry track in warmer temperatures the Ferrari looks to be using the soft tyres quite well, but do they stand any chance over a single flying lap around Hockenheim?

Elsewhere in the field Alonso appears to be making the most of improvements with the Renault while Vettel has been on form since Friday morning. BMW however must be scratching their heads a little. With both cars off the pace no doubt they have a plan, but will technical problems wreck another qualifying session for Kubica?

Alianora's comparator spreadsheet was spot on with qualifying predictions for Britain, and this week suggests a Hamilton / Massa front row and places Räikkönen in 6th place.

The one hour qualifying session starts at 1pm in the UK (2pm local). ITV's build up show will also be online. Don't forget the lovable live timing from Bernie too.

As ever, do let us know where you're watching and also your qually predictions too.
