Hamilton risks being stripped of German GP win

Speaking before the verdict was announced, FIA race director Charlie Whiting outlined why stewards had not started an investigation immediately during the race. "It was a confusing second and a half", he said.

And the world champion, who missed out on a win in front of his home fans last time out, held on to claim a triumph described as a "miracle" by his team, and the Briton was understandly in buoyant mood.

Rapidly overtaken from pole position at the British GP, Hamilton was then shunted off the track following a collision with Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen. He was angry with himself, kicking the gravel in frustration as he stepped out his auto.

How will Hamilton react in Germany?

.

"I threw it away". I had a small moment with one of the lappers, the Sauber, under braking and Valtteri got past me, so not an easy race.

"It's not like tonight I will have difficulties falling asleep because of what I have done wrong", Vettel said.

They now lead Ferrari by eight points heading to Hungary next week.

"It's motor racing. The race happens on Sunday and not on Saturday. I think this is now up there with them". I prayed as I always do before the race and my prayers were really answered, it freaks me out a little bit and to see the biblical storm afterwards.

"I hadn't thought about the championship".

After the late Safety Car restart, Hamilton was forced to defend from Bottas, who had the advantage of being able to push with newer tyres.

Max Verstappen was fourth for Red Bull with Nico Hulkenberg fifth for Renault.

"You never knew what was going to happen after the safety auto".

Mercedes has often taken the blame for Hamilton's setbacks, right up to the top.


"KR: "Do you want me to let him go?"

"They were all panicking in the pit wall, " Hamilton said.

"Yeah it is a worry but we have seen that they have been capable of doing it".

But this doubling back onto track led to the stewards summoning Hamilton.

That did not go down well at a nervy Mercedes.

Hamilton held the lead and on the next lap Mercedes strategy guru James Vowles came on the radio to tell the Bottas he had to stay in second position until the end of the race.

"I like Kimi and we get along", Vettel said ahead of his home race.

"Of course we didn't expect it but in formula one you need to be ready for literally anything", he added.

Ferrari had made a similar call earlier on, at Raikkonen's expense.

Hamilton had worked his way to fourth place by running a long first stint on Softs, quickly sweeping past the midfield pack, and stayed out until lap 43, shortly before the first batch of rain hit. Independent from the power unit because one vehicle - the Raikkonen auto still has the first spec in the auto - Vettel has a new spec in the auto and they've brought new bits to the track today that they've put into all Ferrari-powered cars and all of them bar one made it into Q3.

"KR: "I don't, I'm sorry, but can you be clearer. what do you want me to do?"

The 31-year-old grew up just 30 miles from Hockenheim and looked set to record a first win at the venue as he led with 15 laps remaining. "Please. Just tell me".
