I have to go out early doors tomorrow so I am putting my pole poll thoughts here for now in the comments; feel free to move into the right place as and when!
Alex here now…
Sorry for the delay. This being on holiday causes all kinds of problems…
So, we haven’t been to Hockenheim for a few years which might confuse a few people. Hamilton, for example, hasn’t been there before. But nobody seems to have mentioned that to him – he’s been fastest in both practice sessions so far. But there is a chance that Ferrari are holding back.
There is a high possibility of rain during Qualifying today which may well cause a topsy turvy grid. And if we do get a new grand prix winner this weekend they would be the 100th different driver to win the race.
