Max Verstappen celebrates as Lewis Hamilton laments 'disastrous' German Grand Prix

  • Published: 28 July 2019
  • Red Bull's Max Verstappen won a wet and crazily chaotic German Grand Prix littered with crashes and safety car periods on Sunday with Mercedes' Formula One leader Lewis Hamilton finishing out of the points in 11th place.

    In an extraordinary race of constantly changing fortunes, multiple pitstops and endless drama, Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel started last on the grid but finished second in front of his home crowd.

    The Russian Daniil Kvyat, who became a father on Saturday, was an astonishing third to hand Red Bull's sister team Toro Rosso their second ever podium place.

    Mercedes, who finished empty-handed in their 200th start and in what looks likely to be the last German Grand Prix for some time given the race's uncertain future, had won nine of the previous 10 races.

                                      Interviewing Lewis when he doesn't get P1 is cringy. You know he wants to go crazy but he's acting cool.

                                        I think when you've got a car capable of winning every race as he knows he has you're going to be disappointed when you don' t pull it off .He knows all he can do is dust himself down and go again at the next one. He's probably glad that because he has such a big lead he can take a hit like this and get away with it he just needs to make sure if he wants to keep his title as world champ to not let it happen again if he can help it. But then again he knows this.

                                                What was Lewis expected to do? Drive all the way around the track and have pieces of his own carbon fiber spread out all over the track?

                                                  mlschaap because it’s dangerous to have shards of carbon spread out around the track. Yes, everyone needs to follow the rules - I am saying there shouldn’t be a rule for that.

                                                  Max is awesome. I wish Daniel was still with a Red Bull, I think they’d both be getting podiums a lot.

                                                    Red Bull would be beating Ferrari in the Constructors championship if Daniel would still be at Red Bull.

                                                            I really hope Max stays at Red Bull. That team is built around him and is getting better and better. Gives me the same feeling as Schumi rebuilding Ferrari to finally take the championship.
