Lewis Hamilton Keeps Formula One German GP Win After Investigation And Reprimand

Lewis Hamilton Keeps Formula One German GP Win After Investigation And Reprimand

Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel crashed out of his home German Formula 1 Grand Prix while leading the race on Sunday, eliciting a mixture of sympathy and scorn online as British driver Lewis Hamilton claimed victory.

He was in a class of his own, persistently lapping quicker than the rest of the field but he rated the German Grand Prix as a superior run.

Mercedes were summoned by the stewards after the race for an incident involving Hamilton under the safety vehicle, for which he received a reprimand. When you come to England, going around I don't remember any of the fans booing. Today we made it in order to bring a one-two home.

Below the image, Hamilton wrote, "Guys, I'm on a plant-based diet and have been for a year now", adding that he feels "better than ever." .

"It's very reminiscent of how I started out", he explained to reporters at Hockenheim, whose present layout has been likened to a glorified go-kart track by those who miss the bygone blast through the forest.

Quoted by The Daily Telegraph, Hamilton had written: "I never get to watch the races but just got home and [am] watching Sky".

"I've never had a race like this, " Hamilton said.

"I just can't believe. well I can believe it".

"We will try every weekend and every race and we're not far from it but obviously so far it's not been happening", he acknowledged.

Hamilton is now locked in a title battle with Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel and his title defence suffered a blow at Hockenheim as he was forced to pull over with a loss of hydraulic pressure at the end of the first qualifying segment.

"In the first segment I felt that the machine will allow you to take the pole position, sometimes it's just understand".

A series of pit stops saw the lead pass from Vettel to Bottas to Verstappen and finally to Raikkonen, at which point Vettel was second. But at this point in the race, rain was falling off and on around the track.

Asked why he tried to PUSH his Mercedes auto, Hamilton said: "I didn't really understand exactly what had happened so in my mind I was thinking, "Get the vehicle back to the track", but they asked me to turn the vehicle off".

"It was a small mistake but a big impact on the race".

"It is a very hard call because on the one side you want to optimise the result and that is what you need to do, but on the other side you need to give both drivers a chance to win the race", said Wolff. As I said, we didn't need the rain.
