Hamilton storms to German GP win, as Daniel and Max complete podium

Defending world champion Lewis Hamilton claimed a commanding German Grand Prix victory to extend his lead in the Formula One drivers’ championship ahead of summer break 19 points clear of his teammate Nico Rosberg, who finished at fourth behind the Red Bull duo.

Second was Daniel Ricciardo, with Max Verstappen, his Red Bull teammate, third. Another poor start cost Rosberg victory chance, that resulted him in a tight battle with the Red Bull drivers and he was unable to emerge ahead at his final stop, a charge hampered by a five-second penalty for forcing Max Verstappen wide mid-way through the race.
Rosberg protested his innocence. “Can you explain to them that I was full lock on the steering wheel,” he said over the team radio.
Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen crossed the line in fifth and sixth for Ferrari while Jenson Button finished eighth for McLaren after passing the Williams over Valtteri Bottas on the penultimate lap.

British rookie Jolyon Palmer started 14th and made three places off the start-line, but a clumsy collision with Felipe Massa on the opening lap, saw him drop to last, and he ended the race only 19th.

Celebrating the 49th victory of his career, Hamilton said: “Today I didn’t make any mistakes, so in my heart I am happy with what I did today. I came to do a job.

“Yesterday wasn’t perfect but you learn from those things, and today was a real show of looking at the glass half-full.”
