I'm not driven by revenge, insists Hamilton

Lewis Hamilton

The Mercedes driver started 14th on the grid at Hockenheim before taking the chequered flag after race leader and title rival Sebastian Vettel crashed out on the 52nd lap.

"The most trying day and the greatest day".

And Brundle, who has covered F1 for more than two decades and drove in 158 Grands Prix himself, reckons the 33-year-old has found himself in an "unusual" mindset this season.

"Then you have people from Mexico, people from England, you have people I think from Nigeria or somewhere in Africa with Hamilton shirts on - the name Hamilton on, standing in amongst the red".

On an extraordinary day, Hamilton's victory had hung in the balance for close to 90 minutes after he was hauled in front of the stewards for aborting a late pit-stop, cutting across the grass, and rejoining the track.

"After racing for so many years you never know when you're going to have a better race than your best race, but this is right there with them". I have the will to not want to give up.

"It's very reminiscent of how I started out", he explained to reporters at Hockenheim, whose present layout has been likened to a glorified go-kart track by those who miss the bygone blast through the forest.

The Red Devils are now plotting to move the 12-month clause on Martial's deal so he can not quit on a free next summer. Rooney has praised Martial and told talkSPORT: "I think Martial, ability-wise, is incredible".

Earlier, German fans had cheered for a different reason when Hamilton's Mercedes suddenly stalled on track in the first part of qualifying, known as Q1.

"Get the gap to Valtteri", Hamilton's race engineer Peter Bonnington said on the radio."Kimi is staying out".

"This is something I'm a bit anxious about", Rosberg said while working in his pundit role at Sky Sports. So I couldn't tell you.

"We had eye contact on the podium, and I think it's pretty clear to us that what I said to Valtteri is something that I would also say in the team".

Lewis Hamilton's former rival Nico Rosberg has poured further salt on Sebastian Vettel's wounds by claiming the Ferrari driver is battling the "darkest moment" of his career. "But this one I didn't make any mistakes, I was really proud of it".

"It was a huge mistake and it had a huge impact on the race because we retired", Vettel said. If the stewards find him guilty, he will lose the top position to Bottas and his championship lead margin on Vettel will come down to 10 points instead of current 17points.

"It is a very hard call because on the one side you want to optimise the result and that is what you need to do, but on the other side you need to give both drivers a chance to win the race", said Wolff.
