German F1 Grand Prix 2014 – Nico Rosberg wins F1’s German Grand Prix for the first time. But it was the mini-battles ensuing behind the German and the performance of Lewis Hamilton which should steal the headlines.
Hamilton started back in 20th on the grid – after a crash in Q1 and a change of gearbox – but the 2008 world champion, with some risky over-taking narrowly missed out on a second-place finish when the in-form Valterri Bottas kept him off his tail to secure a third successive podium finish.
But for a collision with Jenson Button on lap 30 which broke Hamilton’s front wing, he may well have had the traction to get past the Williams at the death.
But the Finn had the power and the skill to hold off Hamilton’s late charge to hold on to second spot. Behind the leading three, the battle between Fernando Alonso and Daniel Ricciardo demonstrated the never-say-die spirit of both drivers as former world champion Alonso finally did enough to deny Ricciardo of fifth spot by the narrowest of margins.
