Nurburgring - Qualifying times

Charles Pic claimed pole position for Barwa Addax, while Luca Filippi celebrated his switch to Coloni with a front row starting slot ahead of an all-French second row.
Charles Pic put the bounce back into Barwa Addax' season for the first time since Valencia, narrowly holding off Luca Filippi by 0.076s as the Italian prepares for his 100th GP2 start and his first for Scuderia Coloni.

French rivals Romain Grosjean and Jules Bianchi line up on the second row of the feature race at the Nurburgring, with Pic's team mate Giedo van der Garde thwarted by traffic and set to start from fifth place.
