With 6 German drivers, amongst them the World Champion and current Championship leader, on the grid in today’s Formula One German Grand Prix there was a very big chance that the German fans where going to get a German winner. Unfortunately for them it turned out differently. As soon as the red lights dimmed Lewis Hamilton took the lead from pole sitter Mark Webber and he never looked back. Some tight racing and some even tighter pit stops saw Hamilton take the win, followed by Webber and Ferrari’s Alonso. Sebastian Vettel had a very disappointing race and finished 4th after some cunning pit stop play on the last lap.
