Hamilton's German GP victory under threat for aborted pit stop

Valtteri Bottas has been a consistent performer with Mercedes F1 racing team

Lewis Hamilton said he does not believe he can repeat his Silverstone heroics by driving through the field to gain a podium finish in Sunday's German Grand Prix.

"I honestly thought that I was going to stay out, I was happy with my tyres, and then they said: 'Come in, ' and I saw Valtteri ahead coming in, soo I was like 'are they sure about it?' The kart that I had was really, really old, owned by five different families", Hamilton recalled. I've never had a race like this. I woke up this morning and you always have to have the belief that it is possible.

"I don't think it was a huge mistake, it was a huge impact on the race because we retired", he told reporters. "I lost some time behind the Williams at the beginning but I had some fun battles out there". But after explaining his version of events with team manager Ron Meadows to the officials, the Briton avoided a timed penalty, and was handed only a reprimand to ensure the 66th win of his career would not be chalked off. "I questioned it and it turned out to be the right thing".

"I never get to watch the races but just got home and watching Sky (Sports)", Hamilton wrote.

"It's obviously very, very hard from that position and highly unlikely, but you always got to believe", he told reporters, having scored his first win after starting outside the top six. I'm so grateful, I kept pushing and kept believing and it happened.

From 14th, Hamilton was in the points after just four laps.

"I guess it is a crucial point in the season".

"I'm just focused on trying to be the best I can be in myself".

The victor of the championship "Formula 1" Grand Prix of Germany became the driver of "Mercedes" Lewis Hamilton (the highest paid pilot "Royal races").

There was some controversy associated to his win, as the stewards only reprimanded Hamilton for a rules infraction during the race where he crossed the pit-lane entry line following a moment of confusion over the radio. When the rain arrived, Hamilton delivered, lapping three seconds quicker than his rivals, before Vettel stuck it in the wall. "But this one I didn't make any mistakes, I was really proud of it".

Hamilton started only 14th after a mechanical failure in qualifying, but took the chequered flag at Hockenheim following a dramatic conclusion sparked by a rain shower, and Vettel's jaw-dropping crash. "But it is not like tonight I will have difficulties to fall asleep because of what I have done wrong". As I said, we didn't need the rain.

Eventually the 31 year old got out of his vehicle and walked away, escorted by marshals, kicking away some gravel from underneath his foot as he did.

Vettel cannot undo his error, but he can take confidence from the fact he had the race won until that stage. A tiny bit too late on the brakes, I locked the rears and I couldn't turn.

Hamilton's love of fighting from the back is somewhat ironic, considering he is F1's record holder with 76 pole positions - eight more than Michael Schumacher. "I realised quickly that it was over", said Vettel, who again played down his mistake.
