If practice is anything to go by, we’ve got another all-Mercedes tussle for pole position during qualifying for the German Grand Prix as Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg lock horns once again.

The two championship protagonists are separated by just four points, and although you get nothing for pole position on a Saturday, at Hockenheim, starting from P1 will give you a clear advantage heading into the sweeping first corner.

Rosberg appeared to have the upper hand in the final practice session on Saturday morning as he gapped Hamilton by a full six-tenths of a second. The Briton did complain of a problem with his brakes, and as we saw during FP2 on Friday, he certainly has the pace to edge out the home favorite this weekend.

Another German driver, Sebastian Vettel, will be hoping to prove in qualifying that he has the pace to get in the mix for just his third podium finish of the season. His championship defence has wilted this year thanks to the RB10 car, but a good result at home will still be his objective. The likes of Fernando Alonso, Kimi Raikkonen, Felipe Massa and Valtteri Bottas may have something to say about that, though.
