Hamilton Surpasses All Expectation




Hamilton surpassed all expectations to emerge victorious at the German Grand Prix. The race was probably the most closely constantly of the season, amongst the top three teams. Mclaren had already made its presence felt at the top when he had taken the front row of the grid, qualifying second and Ferrari were looking to carry their momentum from their last race win.

There was a little drizzle during the start of the race but there was nothing once the race started. Lewis made a great start taking the race lead from Webber at pole. Ferrari of Alonso also gave a charge at the start overtaking Vettel coming behind Webber in third. The top three cars of Mclaren, Red Bull and Ferrari looked to be locked in a great battle to get the better of the other. It was a great start to any race in this season yet.

Vettellooke totally out of color and was not looking very impressive, frankly. He never looked fast nor had the aggression to be able to pass Massa, till the last lap. Vettel was following Massa for quite a few numbers of laps and seemed to lack that pace to be able to overtake him. Massa didn’t particularly look fast on the trek and neither did Vettel. It was only due to some fast and neat pit crew guys who managed to chance the tyres and get Vettel going before Massa which allowed Vettel to gain the position, as both of them pitted together with Massa in front, going into the last lap of the race.

Hamilton looked in total control as he led the race for a good amount of time before he stopped for his first pit stop. Webber who pitted a lap ahead took the lad away from Lewis as he come out second behind Webber. But in the subsequent pit stops Lewis seemed to get the better of the Red Bull and Ferrari, passing them on different occasions just at the pit exit. He seemed to carry so much pace and momentum, it was difficult to stop him.

S Vettel, one of the six the local heroes ended up 4th with Massa in 5th. Sutil continued his good run for Force India ending 6th. Nico Rosberg came in 7th with Schumacher in 8th.

Karun Chandhok who was driving for the Lotus team managed to finish the race in the last place. It was a great moment as he must have learned a lot from the race and gathered valuable experience. There was a moment in the race when he lost control of the car and felt on to the gravel, but luckily he managed to drive out of it back on the track to continue with the race.

Lewis in the end took a comfortable win with the Ferrari of Alonso coming in second with Webber in third. At the end, a jubilant Lewis was heard congratulating his team for pushing hard and it was an amazing result for them. It was delight for one Mclaren driver as he took the race win but despair for the other, as Jenson had to retire due to mechanical problem with the car. It was his second retirement in consecutive races. He has had to retire from the last race and this one as well with no fault of his own.

Webber was again unfortunate to land up on the last podium spot, starting from a pole position. Suddenly, McLarens and Ferraris now seem to be giving Red Bulls a run for their money. This Formula One season surely seems to be opening up a lot more now. It will be interesting to see if Red Bull can maintain their massive lead over the other teams and Vettel, his championship.
