Rosberg, who had never won his home race before this weekend, led from pole to the flag with no credible threat to his dominance. It capped off a week of celebration for Germany and Rosberg, with both Mercedes cars finishing on their home podium after the nation won the football World Cup, and Rosberg inked a new multi-year contract with the team after getting married.

Unfortunately for the Finn, his Williams was unable to to compete with the raw speed demonstrated by class leader Mercedes, meaning he had no opportunity but to equal his career-best result. Lewis Hamilton finished a sensational third after starting from twentieth on the grid. The Briton, after cruising to victory at Silverstone two weeks ago to slash his points deficit to Rosberg to just four points, crashed heavily in qualifying due to a brake failure that left him sixteenth fastest. A gearbox penalty left him starting from twentieth, but an aggressive strategy and driving style to match led him to the top five after at the end of the first stint. His 17-place rise wasn’t without its incidents, however, with a minor clash with Jenson Button leaving him with a mangled front wing, and an early pit stop for his final tyre change spoiling his chances to pass Bottas for second.
