    Raikkonen Takes German GP Pole



    From speedtv.com ....

    Kimi Raikkonen produced a stunning lap to take his and the McLaren-Mercedes-Benz team's first pole position of the season in qualifying for the German Grand Prix at Hockenheim.

    Raikkonen's fast lap of 1:14.070, a tenth of a second faster than Michael Schumacher and his Ferrari, was enough to repeat his pole feat of last year in at his engine manufacturer's their home race.

    The second Ferrari of Felipe Massa qualified third, while Jenson Button rebounded from his Honda team's dismal French Grand Prix by qualifying fourth ahead of Giancarlo Fisichella's Renault and Rubens Barrichello in the second Honda.

    World Champion Fernando Alonso's 25th birthday was not a happy one at work, as he could qualify his Renault only seventh - equaling his worst place of the season. In fact, Alonso faced the prospect of not qualifying in the top 10 for the first time all season, as he ran around 10th place right until the end, before a late lap put him safely through.

    Ralf Schumacher, who almost hit Button when he was prematurely waved out of the pits, was eighth for Toyota, with Pedro de la Rosa ninth for McLaren and David Coulthard 10th for Red Bull.

    The first 15-minute session was red-flagged following a heavy accident for American Scott Speed. Speed ran over the curbs on the exit of Turn One and spun his Toro Rosso into the wall on halfway down the next straight, meaning he will start last on the grid after failing to set a time, save for Jarno Trulli (Toyota) and Christijan Albers (MF1), who changed engines.

    Also failing to make the second part of qualifying were Speed's teammate Vitantonio Liuzzi, the Midlands of Albers and Tiago Monteiro, and Takuma Sato and Sakon Yamamoto in the Super Aguris.

    German Grand prix qualifying results:

    1) Kimi Raikkonen McLaren-Mercedes 1:14.070
    2) Michael Schumacher Ferrari 1:14.205

    Has Fisi ever qualified before Alonso? Unprecedented lol

    What a lap by Kimi, I think it will be a thoroughly delightful duel between Raikkonen and Schumi, although I'd prefer Schumi to have pole. I love seeing Kimi in the hunt

    Re: Raikkonen Takes German GP Pole

    Yes, its quite the happy birthday for Alonso.

    Could not agree more Let`s hope for a hot race

    Re: Raikkonen Takes German GP Pole

    Well, Kimis pole was bought dearly with minium fuel and was just some marketing trick so that Merc got a good press on Sunday IMO.
    I've been to the race. Apart from Villeneuve crashing and a perfect result from a Ferrari-point-of-view nothing much happened, though.

    Re: Raikkonen Takes German GP Pole

    For me it was great to see Ferrari back dominating the race like they used to, only 11 points behind in the drivers championship and 10 points behind in constuctors championship.
    Should be a very interesting formula1 fight between them, only 6 races left!!

    In the future, could we refrain from giving away the results of F1 events the subject title? My DVR is only 75% effective due to web forums. Perhaps the problem is on my end.

    Thanks!!

    I agree. If the title said something like "F1 Results Inside" or something, that would be helpful

    If Michelin doesn't do something fast, it will be all red at the end of the year...

    Re: Raikkonen Takes German GP Pole

    I just quit watching after about 20 laps. I cant wait unjtil 2008. Aero has become too influential in the cars.
