And the winner of the 2011 German Grand Prix is Sebastian Vettel… Thats what you would have been expecting to read but in truth it was British world champion Lewis Hamilton who spearheaded a victory in the defending world champions homeland. Taking Webber off the line after the Australian’s bad start, Hamilton’s drive was perfectly executed from start to finish.
Sebastian could only muster 4th due to a surprising lack of pace and team mate Webber went from sitting on pole to finishing third. Ferrari’s Alonso came seconds after a solid afternoon unlike Jenson Button. Starting from 7th Button’s prospect weren’t fantastic but a hydraulic failure on his McLaren forced the 2009 champ to retire.
Vettel still has a colossal lead in the drivers championship but he now knows he is not invincible.
