Red Bulls unstoppable on Saturdays

Red Bull driver, Mark Webber, has brought his team their tenth pole position in as many races after winning the qualifying race for the German Grand Prix.

­The Aussie needed one minute 30.079 seconds to deal with the Nurburgring circuit on Saturday.

McLaren man Lewis Hamilton was second fastest, which saw the season’s leader Sebastian Vettel not making it to the front row for the first time this season.  

The Red Bull’s No. 1 will take start from third at the home Grand Prix, with Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso right behind.   

It was a good day for Russia’s Vitaly Petrov as the Lotus Renault racer not only made it into Q3, but managed to beat Michael Schumacher to take ninth place at the start of Sunday’s event.

“We’re confident we’ve taken a good step forward from Silverstone two weeks ago. We had various difficulties there and we knew that we needed to raise our game. I think it’s clear from the past two days that we can compete well here. I’m pleased to have qualified in ninth position on the grid tomorrow because it gives me a good opportunity to really be amongst the points. That said, it was difficult to find the right set-up today and warm the tyres in the cool conditions,”
Petrov told Lotus Renault’s official website.
