KIMI rockets to HOCKENHEIM pole


Kimi Raikkonen delivered on McLaren’s form so far this weekend by taking a comfortable pole position for the German Grand Prix.

Juan Pablo Montoya looked set to challenge his team-mate for the top spot when he threw his chances away with a spin turning into the final corner.

The big surprise of the session was the performance of Jenson Button, who will join Raikkonen on the front row.

Fernando Alonso kept himself in good shape in terms of the championship endgame by qualifying third, just ahead of Renault team-mate Giancarlo Fisichella.

Michael Schumacher used the softer Bridgestone tyre compound to qualify fifth.
