Who would’ve thought that Hamilton would be leading the Drivers’ Standings going into the summer break, I certainly didn’t but after today’s German Grand Prix in which Hamilton won and his team-mate Rosberg finished 4th, that’s what’s happened.
Firstly I have to say congratulations to Max Verstappen. He drove an astonishing race holding off Kimi Räikkönen towards the end. I mean for goodness sake, he’s 18 years old, where on earth does he get the confidence and skill from? Anyway, let’s move on to the main subject.
It’s not the most attractive title I admit but that is the number of miles Mercedes have covered over the first winter test in Barcelona. It seems that yet again Mercedes have created a bulletproof car. It’s truly remarkable.
So it’s that time of the year again. The winter break is nearly over and this year we are having to wait even longer until we see the first action of the year. The first pre-season test takes place in Barcelona on the 22nd of February while the first race in Australia takes place on the 20th of March.
