Ferrari's Fernando Alonso took pole position twice for Sunday's German round at Hockenheim. First he lapped his Ferrari in 1m 40.904s in soaking conditions in Q3 that required Pirelli's extreme wet tyres.Then, after Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber had come up short with 1m 41.026s and 1m 41.496s for Red Bull, Alonso banged in a lap of 1m 40.621s just to rub it in. The rain had come in Q2 and never really let up, though its intensity ebbed and flowed. And it is likely that some teams may have steered closer to dry set-ups in expectation of better weather for the race.
