German GP: Lewis’ win

With a driver of Lewis Hamilton’s calibre at McLaren, Ferrari must be doing their nut trying to figure out what’s going wrong with their red cars. Both of their drivers underperformed today, and at the Brit GP the team themselves underperformed by getting the strategy all wrong.

Brit GP: Hamilton’s win

There aren’t enough superlatives to describe the quality of Lewis Hamilton’s win. It took a typical British summer’s day – wind, showers, some sun – to give Hamilton the canvas on which to display his abundance of natural talent. The Englishman didn’t put a foot wrong.
