F1: Lewis Hamilton Cruises to German Grand Pix Victory


Lewis Hamilton took full advantage of Nico Rosberg's miserable afternoon to win the German Grand Pix and extend his championship lead to 19 points.


Hamilto capitalised on his team-mate's poor start from pole position to claim his sixth victory in seven races.
Rosberg's home race went from bad to worse as he was handed a five-seconds penalty for forcing Max Verstappe off the road midway through the race.
It meant he finished fourth, one place behind Verstappen and two behind Daniel Ricciardo who finished second to make it two Red Bulls on the podium.
