2019 German Grand Prix results: Max Verstappen comes first, Mercedes fails at home

Red Bull driver Max Verstappen won in the afternoon of Hockenheim rain (Germany), while Mercedes duo: who gave up, who finished 11th.

Lewis Hamilton's prayer came true: Rain poured into the 2019 German Grand Prix instead of the 40oC heater. Anyway, it was a disaster for him and the Mercedes team for a day without drama.

Lewis Hamilton was clearly wrong: the Mercedes team needed a 40 ° C heat at the German Grand Prix rather than a sudden rain. The sudden change in Hockenheim weather has upset all the judgments of the teams, especially since many of them have never raced in the rain like this. Consequently, the German Grand Prix 2019 suddenly became a dramatic episodes that made viewers sometimes laugh.

Max Verstappen won and this is the Dutchman's second consecutive victory for Red Bull this season. Equally impressive is Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel from his last starting position, still able to finish second in his homeland. The third place belongs to Daniil Kvyat of Toro Rosso. These weekends of Daniil Kvyat were perfect, because after the wife gave birth on Saturday night, on Sunday, it was the husband's turn to fulfill an 11-year dream of being able to step on the podium.

Come here, surely someone wonders: Why not mention Lewis Hamilton or Mercedes? Simply because this is the worst race of a British driver, making both him and the ruling F1 team this season pointless! At first glance it seemed like a joke, because Hamilton first started because of taking up the pole and Mercedes still had an excellent warrior Valtteri Bottas.

But in the end, Hamilton was only ranked 11th, so there were no points. This is the result of his mistake, silly decisions of the whole team and of course the influence from the rain across Hockenheim.

Started at lap 29, when Hamilton still took the lead and rushed to the most flooded spot on the track. At that time, he decided to switch to slippery tires like any other racer, but it turned out to be wrong. Everyone thought that the track was dry at the time, but that was not the case. As a result, Hamilton crashed into the barrier and when he rushed back to the track immediately, he was fined 5 seconds.

However, the problem is not so simple. Then, when Hamilton needed to replace components, in turn the Mercedes technical staff was not ready to support him.

The scene in Mercedes' area was chaotic at the time. The voice of the radio instructor rang loudly, but the more he spoke, the more confused it was. Consequently, Hamilton lost 50 seconds here. Witnessing this commotion, the crowd of supporters of Max Verstappen was thrilled.

But when returning to the track, Hamilton temporarily ranked 5th, so there are still opportunities. However, he came back late because of a third safety car summoned to support the outdated Renault car of Nico Hulkenburg. With this incident, Hamilton temporarily fell to the bottom.

Mercedes' tragedy has not stopped yet: While in fourth place, Valtteri Bottas also collided with the car, leaving the race, making the team unable to make any points in Germany.

However, the madness of the German Grand Prix in the rain not only harms Mercedes alone. Starting in 10th place but excelling on the second, Charles Leclerc seemed to have a chance to win the Grand Prix for Ferrari, then hit the right position where Hamilton had an accident. Renault's Niko Hulkenberg is also too bad: He bumps into the wall just in time to have the opportunity to stand on the podium for the first time.
