  • BREAKING Hamilton reprimanded but keeps German GP win after stewards call

With 16 laps remaining in the 11th race of the 21-race 2018 Formula 1 season, the German Grand Prix, at the 17-turn, 2.842-mile (4.574-kilometer) Hockenheimring in Am Motodrom, Hockenheim, Baden-Württemberg, Germany, Scuderia Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel was leading in his home race.

Towards the final few lap of the race, Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel, who was leading the race until then, crashed and the safety auto was deployed. "Even if you experience the slightest lock up there, you immediately go off".

He said: "It is very hard (to win) from that position and highly unlikely but you have always got to believe".

"I just wanted to stay calm and collected".

"It was his home race, he had the chance in his hands to win and take a big lead in the championship, but he chucked it away in the wall". As Sunday showed, anything can happen and there is everything left to play for. Hamilton has won three races and is eight points behind Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel.

"Put your energy, any negative energy, whatever energy you have and put it towards trying to do your best next day, for another opportunity to rise -- so I'll give it everything tomorrow and see how I can get up but it's not going to be like Silverstone".

"This is something I'm a bit anxious about", Rosberg said while working in his pundit role at Sky Sports.

Having found Hamilton guilty of the breach almost three hours after the race, the stewards opted to hand the defending champion a reprimand rather than a time penalty, saying there were three mitigating factors to the incident.

Montenegro responded to trump's words on the necessity of its protection
Ms Bishop agreed that Mr Trump had a "valid point" on defence spending She said: "The United States makes a very valid point". Based on last year's data, the USA contributes more to the organisation than any other country, at 3.5 per cent of its GDP.

"It rained more and more and it was so tricky out there, but I'd come so far, there was no way I was giving it up".

"It was awesome to see so many red flags, German flags, so much support around the track", said the four-times world champion, who has yet to win at the circuit nearest to his birthplace. "The kart I had was real old, it had been owned by five different families".

"I think it's disappointing because up to that point everything was sweet, but we didn't need the rain".

"I prayed as I always do before the race, and it feels like those prayers were answered".

Vettel subsequently apologized but by September the German driver had lost his way, never regaining the momentum after a huge mistake in Singapore.

Vettel got out of his Ferrari cockpit, and trudged across the gravel, kicking his right foot at the sand in frustration.

He added that "I didn't do much wrong" but his performance was "not enough to finish the race".

Vettel and Hamilton are both chasing a fifth F1 crown to move level with Argentine great Juan Manuel Fangio and go two behind record-holder Michael Schumacher.
