Heikki Kovalainen was fastest in the final practice session at Hockenheim, 0.07s ahead of Felipe Massa. As usual BMW Saubers did not show much speed in this session, Robert Kubica however seems to have had some technical problems. He did not run at all in final 10 minutes. This final practice session was dry but there are chances of rain for qualifying. You can follow the weather conditions at the track via this webcam.

Formula 1 season continues with 2008 German Grand Prix – we have 9 races to go. It is even at the top of drivers standings, it is also quite close at the top of this Prediction Game standings. With the unpredictable results we get quite often this year I believe there are still at least 15 people who can can win this game. And of course, anybody can win any round .
So place your predictions as usual in the comments below this post:
– Top eight finishers in the race
– Pole position
– Fastest lap

There are pictures from 2006 German Grand Prix in the photogallery. Can’t believe it has been 2 years since we went to see that race …
The morning session started on wet track but later on the teams were able to switch to dry weather tyres. Hamilton and Kovalainen finished the session on top ahead of Massa. The only notable incident was Kubica’s crash.
The second practice took part in dry conditions. Lewis Hamilton was again the qucikest guy on track ahead of both Ferraris and Heikki Kovalainen.
