Formula One championship leader Nico Rosberg claimed pole position for the German Grand Prix as Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton crashed out in Saturday’s qualifying session and will start 15th on the grid.
Rosberg completed the fastest lap on the Hockenheimring in 1 minute, 16.540 seconds in the third part of the session for what was also the weekend’s fastest time.
“Home race, to be on pole is fantastic,” the German said. “Of course I would have preferred it was an open fight with Lewis. I was a little less happy as a result (of Hamilton’s crash) because Lewis didn’t have a shot at it in the end but all in all, yeah, a fantastic day up to now.”Felipe Massa, Formula 1, German GP, Kevin Magnussen, Lewis Hamilton, Nico Rosberg, Valtteri Bottas
