Lewis Hamilton Cruises To German Grand Prix Victory

With a puff of his cheeks, Lewis Hamilton had only one word to describe the seismic shift in this season's title race. 'Crazy'. The Briton heads into the summer break buoyant after winning the German Grand Prix - his fourth win on the trot and sixth in seven races - and extending his championship lead to 19 points. Hamilton took full advantage of a miserable afternoon for Mercedes team-mate Nico Rosberg, whose dreams of a maiden world title are disappearing as quickly as Hamilton did at Hockenheim on Sunday.

  • ·        Poor start from Nico Rosberg saw him drop behind Lewis Hamilton, Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen
  • ·         Hamilton took lead from his Mercedes team-mate at turn one and never looked in trouble in Hockenheim
  • ·         Rosberg was given five second penalty for forcing Verstappen off the circuit in his efforts to overtake him
  • ·         German Grand Prix win means Hamilton leads championship by 19 points heading into summer break
