German Grand Prix qualifying session: Nico Rosberg beats Hamilton

German Grand Prix qualifying session: Nico Rosberg beats Hamilton

Rosberg‘s pole was his second in a row and his fifth of the season and it is the first time he has beaten Hamilton on merit when the two have been fighting it out in the final seconds of the session.

Of his past four poles, Hamilton was unable to compete in China and Russia because of engine problems, he crashed in the European Grand Prix in Baku after an error-strewn performance and had to back out of his final lap in Hungary last weekend when he came across Fernando Alonso’s McLaren, which had spun.

As such, it was a key step for Rosberg, who lost the championship lead to Hamilton for the first time this season following the Briton’s fifth win in six races last weekend.

The title rivals are now tied 6-6 on their head-to-head qualifying records this season.

“It is a great feeling,” said Rosberg. “Just a great lap. I also had extra fuel because to make sure I do have another shot, so I had fuel for three laps.”

Hamilton said afterwards: “It has been a good weekend. I had no problems. I had the pace but I just didn’t finish it off on the last lap.

“Pole was definitely on. I was 0.2secs up on the lap and I just didn’t finish it. That’s it.”
