Webber takes pole at Nurburgring

Mark Webber secured back-to-back pole positions for the first time in 14 months to leave Red Bull team-mate Sebastian Vettel in the shade at the Nurburgring.

The surprise is that Lewis Hamilton managed to split the Red Bull pair and will line up second for tomorrow’s German Grand Prix, the 26-year-old missing out on pole by just 0.065secs.

Hamilton remarked yesterday he did not have a chance of securing top spot on the grid, but the Briton produced a storming display to grab a front-row place for the first time since the second race of this season in Malaysia.

Remarkably for Vettel, it is the first time in 15 races – since last year’s Italian Grand Prix in September – that the reigning world champion is not on the front row.
