After an absence in 2015, Formula One returned to Germany for the 2016 German Grand Prix. Despite taking pole, Rosberg’s poor start and penalty cost him the race. Lewis Hamilton took his 3rd German Grand Prix and has now surged ahead in the Championship. He has won 6 out of the last 7 races. Red Bull have continued their resurgence, and now moved to 2nd in the Constructors with a double podium. Ferrari’s struggles continue, with the mid season break coming just at the right time for them.
Meme’s that sum up the German Grand Prix
1. It was the start that ruined the race for Nico
Throughout the season, the start has not exactly been a strong point for Mercedes. Nico had a slow start out of the box, and which compounded by wheel spin just seconds later, allowed the Red Bulls and Lewis to pull ahead. It was here, Nico knew that he lost the race win and would try to make a podium charge. That would fail in the end again.
