Lewis Hamilton gained the wrong sort of headlines after qualifying at Hockenehim. The Brit suffered a hefty brake failure that careered the Mercedes off track and into the barriers. Nico Rosberg was the sole Mercedes but continued their good form by taking pole position for his home race. The two Williams drivers were close behind, showing good pace once again.

Marcus Ericsson failed to get out of the garage as the Caterham had a hydraulic problem. Pastor Maldonado and Adrian Sutil dropped out in Q1, whilst both Jenson Button and Kimi Räikkönen were disappointed not to make it into the top ten.
