Hamilton Again on Pole in Germany

Hamilton lapped the German track in 1.17.747, faster than Manor Motorsport's Lucas Di Grassi by 0.171 seconds.

The Brazilian had been fastest in today's free practice session earlier, however Hamilton's grip on the F3 Euroseries shows no signs of easing after he recorded his sixth pole position in eight races.

Hamilton's ASM teammate Adrian Sutil kept up the Championship pressure by recording the third fastest time ahead of Di Grassi's teamate Paul Di Resta.

The session was briefly interrupted by a red flag for Franck Perera, who spun off into the gravel. Perera qualified 15th.
