Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton surged ahead at the start of the German Grand Prix on Sunday and held on to win the last race before the European summer break and increase his championship lead.
However it was Australia’s Daniel Ricciardo who ended up stealing the show on the podium.
Hamilton, second on the grid, was faster off the mark than teammate and title rival Nico Rosberg, who started from pole but dropped to fourth before the first corner.
Hamilton, a three-time Formula One champion who has won the title the last two seasons, now takes a 19-point lead over Rosberg into the four-week break, after trailing Rosberg by 43 points earlier in the season.
Ricciardo was second, ahead of Red Bull teammate Max Verstappen, the first time these two Red Bull drivers shared the podium.
