Alonso shows everyone again that he's pretty handy in the wet!

Great Pole...

Agreed, 4 tenths in those conditions...
If conditions get that bad in the race, it'll be interesting if they stop it or let the drivers manage as well as they can.
Rather surprised Grosjean didn't make it into Q2, TBH.

The Red Bull may be the outright fastest car on a dry track, but the Ferrari seems to be fast in any conditions now!

Not as much between these cars as some folks might think really, but the other teams do seem to be dropping behind somewhat, and are still struggling with the tyres...

schumacher did well to get that dog of a mercedes near the front once again.

pitty hes not in a car that capable of challenging the top 3 teams.

no doubt tommorow if its dry he will be a moving roadblock again when the merc shows its real pace somewhere around the fi/sauber/williams group

Yeah that Mercedes really is a bit of a dog, burns up its tires in the dry, its not particularly good in the wet and it doesnt really get any better than the competition when it starts to get lighter.

Its only real strength is its aerodynamics, so its decent on fast tracks where the surface isnt too punishing (like China).

Hockenheim is a relatively fast track, so it shouldnt be as bad but the car hasnt shown any signs of pace there.

Red Bull under investigation for illegal engine mapping, and could be be forced to start from the back of the grid!

Not really surprised at all at the quali results, red bull is "always strong", Ferrari works well in cold temps, Lotus sucks in cold temps and McLaren has no real patterns at all

Hopefully the decision about Red Bull comes pre-race
edit:
Speak of the devil, no further actions.
The rules will probably get revised as they clearly were doing something they shouldn't, but rules are written in a matter they could get through a hole there.

That's the problem with the rules often being so ambiguous and open to interpretation.

They don't agree with Red Bulls interpretation of the rule yet admit they haven't broken the rule as it's written.

Yeah but that's the good thing about F1. All teams try to do exactly the same thing with the rules and to find loopholes. I'd predict there will be a rule change for the next race. This is a new rule after all.

Of course, the teams all come up with innovative and clever ways of circumventing the rules. Most of which are promptly banned by the FIA or embraced by the teams which moaned about it in the first place.

Ross Brawn: "I'm sure that's not end of it". Derek Warwick, one the of the stewards, said pretty much the same thing.

Hamilton: "That's it guys, we should retire", left rear puncture

But didn't retire yet anyway

--- Post Update ---

After Kimi passed the Force India, he has been blazing fast catching Hulkenberg-Maldonado-Webber-train

--- Post Update ---

WOW, wtf happened there, Lotus actually made semi-decent pitstop and at a good time, too?
Kimi past Webber & Maldonado with pitstop

--- Post Update ---

And Kimi past Hulkenberg thanks to Schumacher passing Hulkenberg too

--- Post Update ---

And again, Kimi absolutely blazing after he got past Schumacher, huge gap already between them

--- Post Update ---

LOL, Hamilton is unlapping himself, soon he'll pass Alonso probably, and then slow him down as much as he can to give Button a chance for victory

--- Post Update ---

Kimi lost some time before pitstop with tires dying, but after the pitstop again fastest man on the track.

Also, Button got past Vettel with pitstop, and is catching Alonso!

--- Post Update ---

Bah, damn Alonso
