Vitaly Petrov led the charge for LRGP in qualifying for the German Grand Prix by getting through to the final Q3 session and setting the ninth fastest time for tomorrow’s race at the Nürburgring.

Vitaly’s earlier Q2 lap displaced Nick from then tenth place, meaning that no further time remaining in that session the German was unable to put in another time so will start from P11 for his home Grand Prix.

Grey clouds above made strong suggestions of precipitation potential but never delivered on their threats as both of LRGP’s drivers set their fastest laps today using Pirelli’s soft compound yellow-marked P-Zero tyres.

Mark Webber set pole position with a time of 1min 30.079secs and will be joined on tomorrow’s front row by Lewis Hamilton.

Vitaly Petrov, R31-05

Qualifying: P9, 1:32.187, 16 laps

Nick Heidfeld, R31-04

Qualifying: P11, 1:32.215, 16 laps
