ASM F3 driver Lewis Hamilton completed the double Saturday morning at the Norisring by again taking pole position - this time for the eleventh round of the 2005 F3 Euroseries.

He will be joined on the front-row by his team-mate, Adrian Sutil, who was two tenths slower in the sister ASM F3 car.

Hamilton and Sutil though were made to sweat slightly, as they only really seriously joined qualifying when over half the session had expired and that gamble nearly backfired as both were at the back of the grid when Alejandro Nunez spun and hit the pit wall with the rear of his car. As a result the session was red-flagged.

Luckily for them though the session continued after the disruption and Hamilton managed to break the 49sec barrier, with a 48.874sec lap.

"This time I made a better use of the tyres' peak performance. I'm happy to have scored the extra point for securing the pole, once again," said Hamilton. "It may be more fun to battle it out in the midfield, but I'm here to win. And the battles I was involved in last year were enough for me."

Sutil meanwhile was content with second, but conceded that having Hamilton as a team-mate had both its good and bad points.

"Altogether, things went fine," he continued. "Once again I secured a first-row grid position. Lewis is just extremely competitive. It has advantages and disadvantages to be his team-mate. He is often faster than me but I'm close behind. And there's a lot I can learn from him."

Like in Friday's qualifying for the Sunday race, Sebastian Vettel secured third spot on the grid, thus confirming his best performance in the season so far. The German rookie shares the second row with Paul di Resta.

"I'm close behind the second placed driver but also only just ahead of fourth," said Vettel. "Therefore, I'm happy to have qualified third. Now I must make a good start into the race, then I could have the chance of defeating the ASM cars. It's my goal to secure a podium finish."

Altogether, 16 of the 21 drivers succeeded in setting lap times within one second.
