Fans appeared to have a great time in Hockenheim Sunday afternoon, when Formula One drivers, showed the motorsports world why they are the pinnacle of racing. In a 67-lap, party on the grid, it was non-stop action. There was a crash, contact, and over-taking of friends, and fellow teammates. But at the end of the day, there was the reward of a podium for three of the best drivers currently in Formula One. Mercedes AMG drivers Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton lit the fuse of excitement in Australia, at the start of the season. And fans have lost sleep, waiting for the next race.
There cannot be enough said about Williams-Martini driver, Valtteri Bottas, coming in second and keeping Williams on the map.
In other track action: During the start of the race on turn one, Felipe Massa crashed after connecting with McLaren rookie, Magnussen. Sauber driver Adrian Sutil spun his car around and got stranded in the middle of the track. Fans and commentators were puzzled as to why the safety car was not deployed. The decision by track marshal’s to let it sit on the track for a lap, then send men out on foot to push it out of the way, was heavily criticized. Stranger than that, was the sudden burst of flames from the car of Daniil Kyvat.
Sahara Force India’s driver Nico Hulkenberg, had an impressive seventh place finish in front of his home crowd. While fellow German and 4-times world champion Sebastian Vettel, was one step away from a podium coming in fourth. Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso finished fifth.
Stay tuned to Xiro Xone News and F1 Sports. Next race, Hungary
