Lewis Hamilton wins his fourth race of the season at the Hockenheim Ring in Germany – taking the lead in the Driver’s Formula 1 World Championship Standings.
Lewis stormed away from the field from the start of the race, leading by the length of the strait after only a few laps. Massa in the Ferrari was not able to keep up with his supreme pace, but fast enough to stay in front of McLaren’s Heikki Kovalainen.
As Lewis was leading the race by a country mile the safety car had to be deployed after a big Toyota crash on the pit-strait. Most cars came in to pit but McLaren left Lewis out on the track behind the safety car. This turned out to be a mistake as the rest of the field went into pit to get tyres and fuel to last to the end of the race, apart from Hamilton how had to come in again.
Lewis came out on track in 7th position after the pit-stop behind his team mate Heikki who soon realised that Hamilton was a lot quicker and decided to let him though. Lewis then managed to pass Heidfeld, Massa, who was having brake and tyre problems and Piquet who did very well to pit early the get his best ever F1 race result in 2nd position.
There was no stopping Lewis with his incredible speed and consistency this weekend and hopefully for the rest of the season 😉 .
