Lewis Hamilton believes auto failed before he went off

Lewis Hamilton re-signs with Mercedes until 2020

"In terms of other teams approaching [me], one did, but I didn't give it any air", Hamilton said.

"We were just on different strategies, I was getting stuck and I didn't understand what we wanted to do, it was a bit unnecessary but in the end it didn't matter".

Kimi Raikkonen says Ferrari's radio messages at the German Grand Prix were not clear enough after he appeared to question team orders to let teammate Sebastian Vettel past.

The stewards - including driver representative Mika Salo - gave Hamilton a reprimand rather than a more stringent penalty because the incident happened under a safety auto, and there was no danger to other drivers.

It marked Hamilton's fourth win of the season, the lowest position on the grid from which he has triumphed, and allowed him to re-take the lead of the standings, 17 points clear of Vettel.

"There have been many times in the past, I was there a lot, but I hardly ever see them now".

"For those who didn't know me before, now you do".

"As a driver of course a win is what you're looking after", he added.

But, at the team's home race, Mercedes called off the fight: "Valtteri, this is James (Vowles - chief strategist). This was up there with them".

Lewis Hamilton went from 14 to first to take a "miracle" German Grand Prix victory for Mercedes today and retake the Formula One championship lead from Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel, who crashed.

The rain eventually intensified a few laps later but most of the leaders stayed out on dry tyres as they battled what was expected to be a brief shower.

Hamilton chose to stay out on his ultra-soft tyres during the safety sar period that followed Vettel's accident, swerving away from pitting and crossing a patch of grass to re-join the straight.

The crowds have dwindled since the Schumacher era, despite Vettel winning four titles between 2010-13 and the domination of Mercedes with Nico Rosberg taking the crown in 2016.

The luckless Vettel, still seeking his first victory on his "home" track 30 kilometres from his birthplace, was left to reflect on a near-perfect weekend wrecked by one split-second mistake on lap 52. You are aware we need to look after tyres, both cars need to look after tyres. After hitting the barriers, he punched his steering wheel in frustration.

Last year, the pressure seemed to affect Vettel more, but this time Hamilton is the one showing signs of strain.

"Yesterday, we saw how bad it can be and in 24 hours, it can all turn around".

Asked if the crossing of the pitlane entry line brought with it a certain penalty, Whiting said: "I don't think there is a specific precedent". Raikkonen's wife Minttu then got involved, suggesting Hamilton was "crying like a girl", and urged him to take up ballet. "It's great for Mercedes to win at Hockenheim".

"Going to Hockenheim always feels like coming home", Wolff said.
