In one of the most dramatic races of the F1 history, Max Verstappen was able to win the race at the German GP. The race was riddled with chaos and most importantly with crashes of superstar drivers like Lewis Hamilton, Valtteri Bottas and Charles Leclerc.
The race turned out to be an epic one at the track in Hockenheim after rain caused the havoc. The race track had 4 safety cars on it but still, Verstappen still maintained his focus on his way to sealing his 2nd win of the F1 season.
Taking advantage of the whole mayhem, Sebastian Vettel was able to finish at 2nd place despite him starting the race from the very behind. As for the third place on the podium of winners, it went to Daniil Kvyat of Toro Rosso.
Verstappen said after the race, “this was an amazing race to win at the end. It was really tricky to make the right calls out there.” Verstappen also had to go through a 360 degrees spin at one point in the race and had to come to pt area 5 times.
As for the media reporter Martin Brundle, he said, “it was certainly a stunning race. We have had 3 on the bounce and they are actually getting much better than the last.”
Verstappen is now behind the championship leader by 63 points while he is only 22 behind Mercedes’ Bottas. Both Mercedes drivers had a rough time at the crazy afternoon race.
Hamilton initially finished the race at 11th place but was then bumped to the 9th rank after the 2 drivers of Alfa Romeo were handed their 30-second penalties after the race concluded.
