German Grand Prix: What happened to Lewis Hamilton? Who is on pole?

Hamilton won one of the most dramatic races in recent memory from 14th on the grid, capitalising on a late rain storm and title rival Sebastian Vettel crashing out of the lead.

"It has been the most emotional day", Hamilton said.

During the German Grand Prix, the safety vehicle was called out as the heavens opened.

"I don't think it was a huge mistake".

The Briton was subject to a lengthy steward's investigation for swerving out of the pit entry lane when his team suddenly aborted a tyre change while the safety auto was out.

"So, I did say when I came here that you can see things and they can often be maybe a sign of weakness".

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." .

"All we can do is work on our starts, try and improve, make sure we do a better job understanding the vehicle, doing a better job, pushing for better aero performance, all these different things".




A Mercedes representative and Lewis Hamilton were called to testify before the stewards and handed a reprimand after the German GP.

Despite falling down to last place he managed to recover and finish in an impressive second place but still trailed behind Vettel who sits top of the Formula One standings.

"There have been other great ones: Silverstone 2008 was pretty great, but I went off (there) so 99.8", he said.

"We had the pace, controlled most of the race, just sad it ended in the sand pit". Hamilton was told to pit, then was told that Kimi Raikkonen is pitting so he needs to stay out, which was followed by the instructions to get 'in, in, in!' just when he cut across the grass at the beginning of the pit lane and returned to the track.

"When it rained, I knew I would have a good position", he said.

Speaking after the race, Vettel said the small mistake resulted in a huge effect for him as he loses the lead of the championship.

"I honestly thought that I was going to stay out, I was happy with my tyres, and then they said: 'Come in, ' and I saw Valtteri ahead coming in, soo I was like 'are they sure about it?'" Vettel was slated to earn 25 points for winning the race while Hamilton was slated to earn 12 points for finishing in fourth.

The FIA race director, Charlie Whiting, said that Ferrari had not issued a protest against Hamilton's actions and explained why it had taken so long. It was a very positive weekend and it was just one of those moments.
