Crowd, Hockenheimring, 2014Attendance at the Hockenheimring remained poor on Saturday, providing one of the talking points at the German Grand Prix.

Here’s how the day unfolded on Twitter.

Third practice

Qualifying

Lewis Hamilton crashed out of qualifying early after a brake failure.

After the action

GP2’s 200th race was one of the series’ most exciting, with Mitch Evans winning from 15th on the grid.

Nico Rosberg took a home pole position for the German Grand Prix. But he also formed what is the closest Formula One has ever got to an all-Finnish front row.

Daniel Ricciardo’s reaction after his unsuccessful attempt to make Simon Rennie smile was shown on the world feed during Friday practice.

  1. Last 4 years Ferrari has been a disgrace to its history in F1.

    1. Where did that come from?

      They maybe the most recognizable team in F1 but their not gonna win every year or even get second. The New York Yankees are the most famous team in baseball but they don’t go to the World Series every season, do they?

      Ferrari just needs to retool and regroup, that’s all.

      1. Win every year? Ho ho I will be happy just not watching a red SUV on every GP.

  2. Some funny tweets yesterday. I especially like Ricciardo’s exchanges with his engineer (he really seems to be having a great time this year, much more so than his team mate), and the 1.5 Finnish drivers on the front row (would like to see a fully Finnish victory, but that’s not likely to happen).

    As for conspiracy theories, I don’t know who is proposing them, but I think it’s hardly worth answering to. Of course, it’s conceivable that a team is more ’emotially behind’ one driver (as Webber put in, Brazil 2010) though I’ve seen no evidence of it at Mercedes (perhaps at Lotus Grosjean is better liked than Maldonado). But to suggest a team would sabotage its own cars is beyond ludicrous (oh wait, someone did suggest that: Maldonado himself in the US last year :-)

    Great reference to Singapore 2008, though.
