It was a good day and, a bad day, for the Mercedes AMG team, in Hockenheim, Germany. Fans gasp with fear as Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton spun off the track and hit a wall at 250mph, taking the Brit out of qualifying. Hamilton was clearly shaken from the incident that was attributable to faulty brakes.
German teammate Nico Rosberg took pole position and is expected to win, but Lewis Hamilton is a master at conquering adversity. Rosberg is currently four championship points ahead of Hamilton, but stands to increase his lead to 29, after Sunday’s race. Sunday’s starting grid will be Nico Rosberg, Valtteri Bottas with Williams-Martini racing, and his teammate, Felipe Massa.
Currently, there are four German drivers in Formula One, so the stands are expected to be full. Over the last four-years, the German superstar has been Red Bull driver, Sebastian Vettel. Now, Nico Rosberg, who was actually raised in Monaco, will have to battle fellow German and four times World Champion, Sebastian Vettel, for the hearts of the Germany fans.
