Lewis Hamilton retakes championship lead with 'miracle' German GP win

Formula 1 German Grand Prix start time, TV channel and odds Mix of sympathy & scorn for Vettel after German crashes out of home grand prix to hand Hamilton win

"We have certain rules but it wasn't clear enough", Raikkonen said of the crucial moment on lap 39.

"We were just on different strategies, I was getting stuck and I didn't understand what we wanted to do, it was a bit unnecessary but in the end it didn't matter". Vettel was slated to earn 25 points for winning the race while Hamilton was slated to earn 12 points for finishing in fourth. It was my mistake, " Vettel said.

Vettel had been comfortably leading his home race - an event he has yet to win - but crashed out when rain hit the circuit. "In the end, it didn't change an terrible lot", he shrugged. In the previous race, he was bumped off the track on the first lap but rose from last to second at the British GP with another superbly skilled and resilient drive. "Yes, a huge impact on the race, because we retired there, but it's not like tonight I'll have difficulties to fall asleep because of what I've done wrong".

"It was very hard to know where the grip is and where not. Sometimes you are able to go the distance". I always do, but I managed to have more and bigger today.

"In England I didn't remember hearing the fans booing the drivers, but here there was a lot of booing for me. Usually it gets pretty slippery quickly".

A safety vehicle period took place as a result of Vettel's accident. Irritated by what he perceived to be Hamilton's deliberately slow driving behind a safety vehicle, he accelerated alongside the British driver and then inexplicably swerved into the left side of his Mercedes. It could have happened to someone else just as easily.

Vettel, leading away in the lead, made a race defining error at Turn 12 when the German went off track and hit the wall which ended his race, and the incident caused a safety vehicle, which allowed his title rival to claim victory from starting fourteenth on the grid.

"That's always an unknown". 'They nailed it. Fighting back, never write off Lewis. After racing for so many years, you never know when you're going to have another brilliant race.

"We had a strong auto, so I think we can be as confident (looking forward)".

He did regret missing out on second place, however. "When we took the decision in favour of Valtteri for 2019, it wasn't just about his undoubted speed and work ethic, but also a question of character. I had it in my hands - small mistake, big disappointment".

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

"Hamilton entered the pit lane and then he changed his mind", director Charlie Whiting noted.

"He gives me that feel-good feeling since 2013", he said.

"We go there and try and do the best that we can and see what we get".
