Red Bull’s Max Verstappen and Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel prevailed at a very wet Hockenheim ring on Sunday. Mercedes duo Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas were both unable to manage their race in such extreme conditions. Hamilton finished 9th and Bottas crashed while chasing Lance Stroll.
Charles Leclerc, Nico Hulkenberg, Lando Norris, Daniel Ricciardo and Pierre Gasly were other drivers who cold not finish their race due to technical or conditional failures.
Hamilton and Mercedes still lead the driver’s and constructor’s table but their rivals may look to leap in for a dramatic end to this Formula One season.
