All Set for Hockenheim: Schumacher starting 3rd on German GP Grid

Ryan Joseph Ramos July 22, 2012

There’s only less than half an hour to go before the 2012 German Grand Prix kicks off, and the Germans are looking good at home. While the rain-filled qualifying session was won by Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso, Mercedes AMG Petronas driver Michael Schumacher will start at P3 behind the Red Bull of Sebastian Vettel, with Force India’s Nico Hulkenberg right after Schumi.

Schumacher actually qualified at P4, but Mark Webber had to drop 5 spots because of a gearbox change. Speaking of gearbox changes, Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg will start at 21st after being penalized five places as well.

Rounding out the top ten are Pastor Maldonado (P5), the two McLarens of Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton (P6, P7 respectively), Force India’s Paul Di Resta (P9), and Lotus’s Kimi Raikkonen (P10).

The race is about to start in a bit, so do tune in now to witness what is shaping up to be an exciting race at Hockenheim. If not, rest assured we’ll recap all the action for you right here at BenzInsider.
