Superb Lewis Hamilton Win in GermanyJuly 26th, 2011
Lewis Hamilton qualified very well on Saturday and drove a supreme race in Germany on Sunday. It was an exciting race from start to finish with Hamilton, Alsonso and Webber in the leading group of cars. The highlight of the race was Hamilton overtaking Alonso around the outside of turn 2!
It was a must-see action packed race. If you missed it then catch the highlights on BBC iPlayer now! (UK only)
Very much looking forward to next weekend’s race in Hungary!
Lewis Hamilton after the race:
Every win is special – but with all the emotion, effort and energy the team put into today’s victory, this one feels even more special than usual.
Coming into this weekend, I said I’d take things one race at a time. So to win today is massively positive for us, but there’s a long way to go and it’ll be about consistency as well as speed from here on in.
Driving lap after lap within tenths of each other was about trying to do everything as perfectly as possible – yet, being aggressive yet controlled, I felt the moves I made today were some of the most precise I’ve ever pulled off.
Being able to drive with your head as well as your heart, and getting it just right, is massively satisfying.
The fight for the world championship will be very, very, very hard now. We’re back in the fight though, and I really hope we can carry this forward and keep the momentum going.
