Lewis Hamilton escapes penalty to keep wild German GP win

  • Lewis Hamilton won the German Grand Prix on Sunday

Reigning champion Hamilton's Finnish team mate Valtteri Bottas will start alongside Vettel on the front row, with Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen third and Riccardo's teammate Max Verstappen fourth on the grid.

Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel crashed out of his home German Formula 1 Grand Prix while leading the race on Sunday, eliciting a mixture of sympathy and scorn online as British driver Lewis Hamilton claimed victory.

Vettel had comfortably led the race from pole position until a mistake in lap 52 saw the German lock up as he approached a hairpin turn, sending him into the gravel with no hope of recovery.

"I feel all the rain has come down and kind of washed away the negativity", said Hamilton.

Beaten by Vettel in his home British Grand Prix two weeks ago, where he went from pole to the back of the field and up to second, he had turned the tables completely.

'I should have done better but it wasn't the biggest mistake I have done.

"Love conquers all", he declared, a possible reference to a defiant message he had posted on Instagram after his vehicle broke down in Saturday's qualifying.

"I think he's going to remember that as one of the darkest moments of his whole career", Rosberg, on Sky F1 duty in Hockenheim, said in his post-race vlog.

"And that is not always easy, and today that went against him, I would say".

Top intelligence official says he meant no disrespect to Trump
In turn, national security experts said, Putin played Trump like a fiddle. "OK, that's going to be special". "The evidence is overwhelming and the President needs to say that and act like it".


"I mean it's too early in the season to ever really feel like it's slipping away but of course it never feels good when you face adversity, but the longer you endure it, the stronger you grow", Hamilton said.

Vettel needs to bounce back strongly at the Hungarian GP next weekend, or Hamilton will take the momentum into the summer break.

"I had it in my hands - small mistake, big disappointment", said the German. My mistake. Apologies to the team.

Despite falling down to last place he managed to recover and finish in an impressive second place but still trailed behind Vettel who sits top of the Formula One standings.

With the benefit of fresher tyres, Bottas tried to overtake Hamilton at the restart but was rebuffed.

Ferrari's senior performance engineer, Jock Clear, told Raikkonen not to hold up Vettel.

Marcus Ericsson was ninth for Sauber and New Zealander Brendon Hartley 10th for Toro Rosso.

But it was another race to forget for Red Bull driver Daniel Ricciardo, whose race was terminated in lap 29 after a power issue.

German driver Nico Hulkenberg was fifth for Renault, with Romain Grosjean sixth for Haas ahead of Mexican Sergio Perez and Frenchman Esteban Ocon for Force India in seventh and eighth positions.
