German Grand Prix

German Grand Prix

In an absolutely gripping German Grand Prix, Championship leader Sebastian Vettel came out on top and extended his lead in the race standings, fighting off a battle from Kimi Raikkonen and Romain Grosjean who came second and third respectively.

Lewis Hamilton, who started on pole, had a disappointing race as he eventually fell to finish in 5th place with Vettel passing him off the start line coming up to the first corner. Fernando Alonso never looked like challenging for first place although he was consistent throughout.

The race now leaves Vettel 34 points ahead in the standings over Spaniard Fernando Alonso. After the race Alonso said Ferrari needed to be quicker to challenge with Red Bull, but he also admitted they are not far off.

Kimi Raikkonen is now 7 points behind Alonso with our very own Lewis Hamilton slipping slowly, now 17 points behind Raikkonnen. Hamilton struggled with extremely bad tyre wear but secured 5th place after a stunning pass past Button outside of Turn Two on the final lap. Jenson Button eventually finished the race in 6th place. Mark Webber took the last points place, finishing in 7th.

It’s now two weeks until the next race, which will be held in Hungary from the 26th of July to the 28th July. If Mercedes can pursue the pace they seem to gather in Qualifying it will certainly be an interesting race with Red Bull inevitably continuing their incredible pace in qualifying and throughout the race.
