I think the most Sebastian Vettel fans wished that we will get a very very boring race. But this race was not boring this was totally and absolutely thrilling from lap 1 to 57!
Already the start was very close with Hamilton first kissing slightly Webber’s car and then few corners later kissing more heavily Seb, who went then extreme close to the wall but it went well and Seb kept the lead. But his teammate Webber lost many places and was after the first lap down from 2nd to 9th. He was also the first man of the top10 to come in for a tyre change in lap 7. He rejoined the track at the end of the field. Maybe a bit too far away…
Because in lap later he had a very spectacular crash! He crashed into Kovalainen’s Lotus and made a looping and flew over the track! But luckily he could step out of the car alone and he is totally ok!!!
For sure the safety car went out then and this was the cause of a drive through penalty for Hamilton as he overtook the safety car and after the race 9 other drivers got 5 sec penalties for safety-car rule infringements.
Seb had before the safety car went out a comfortable gap to Lewis but for sure due to the safety car Lewis got close to him and nearly overtook him as Seb didn’t braked very well in the final corner xD
But, the old cool fast, Seb stayed first and as Lewis had to take the drive through Seb got a 15 sec gap to him! Even if this gap got smaller as Seb was stuck a bit in traffic while overlapping…
Typic Seb, he pushed as hell to get the fastest lap xD he always wants to get this! But Schumi and Button were faster xD
The best thing at the end of races is the victory team radio, the drivers mostly totally freak out 😀 this time seb freaked out and his team principal Christian Horner said to him: This was Germany’s best result for today!!
Sorry Christian but you got it a bit wrong as Germany won 4:1 over England.
Well, this was definitely an thrilling rae ith a very scaring crash by Webber! And I know that many Seb fans said after Istanbul crash that they hate Webber but I think they were all scared and hold their breath when they saw this crash, and hoped that nothing happened to him!
Well in fact this was for all Seb fans and amazing race with his 2nd win of this season and his 7th win of his carreer.
The next race will be the British GP at Silverstone in 2 weeks!

our great Twitter friend @x_elly_ just remind me of two cool scenes of the race. DUring the safety car after Mark’s crash almost the whole field pitted and suddenly Kobayashi, who didn’t pit , was 3rd between hamilton and Button! he stayed there until his pitstop in the last few laps! And an other craz situation was when there was a beerbottle rolling over the track XD
Two cool moments and a huge thank to @x_elly_ for reminding me of that!
