Nico Rosberg won the German Grand Prix with an untroubled but well-executed pole to flag finish but in an action packed grand prix it was Lewis Hamilton’s charge from 20th on the grid to third place that had fans on the edge of their seats.
It is Rosberg’s fourth win of the season and puts him 14 points clear of Hamilton and in doing so he also passed the total of career laps led by his father, Keke. Denied a fight with the British driver he did exactly what he needed to do and drove a flawless run to the chequered flag but not one that necessarily caught the eye.
“I had great fun, thank you so much for the support,” he said.“It was hard to get through the pack safely and it was hard to overtake at the end but I am glad to get some points today.”
