The seven phases of F1's outrageous German GP
As Lewis Hamilton put it, the German Grand Prix was like a game of Snakes and Ladders, a chaotic, action-packed race where nearly all drivers had a chance to be on the podium.
The German Grand Prix was one of those rare, delicious blends of chaos, virtuoso driving, wheel-to-wheel action, mistakes and constant make-or-break strategy decisions that had the Hockenheim crowd on its feet and overwhelming the noise of the cars with their cheers time and time again.
Five drivers could realistically claim this should have been their weekend – with a few feisty midfielders legitimately able to suggest that they could have been contenders with the right breaks - but it was Red Bull's Max Verstappen who delivered a classic, old-school 'spin and win' triumph.
