Rain washes out most of final German Grand Prix practice

Race winner Lewis Hamilton of Great Britain

Lewis Hamilton went from 14th to first to seize a "miracle" German Grand Prix victory for Mercedes on Sunday and retake the Formula One championship lead from Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel, who crashed.

"It has been the most emotional day", Hamilton said.

Stewards took into consideration the fact that the incident happened when the safety auto was deployed and at a time of confusion on the pit wall.

Below the image, Hamilton wrote, "Guys, I'm on a plant-based diet and have been for a year now", adding that he feels "better than ever." .

But, it was the rain and the safety vehicle towards the end, that made sure the race ended in a dramatic fashion and changed the entire course of this competition.

On an Instagram post that was later deleted, Hamilton complained: "I never get to watch the races, but just got home and watching Sky (Sports)".

Hamilton's win means he is back in front of Vettel in the drivers' standings - with Hamilton 17 points clear of the Ferrari man, who achieved no points yesterday following an early retirement from the race.

"There have been other great ones: Silverstone 2008 was pretty great, but I went off (there) so 99.8", he said. "We wanted to wait until after the race to take a look at it because we were getting quite close to the end of it".

"In the first segment I felt that the machine will allow you to take the pole position, sometimes it's just understand".

A safety auto came out and while his rivals pitted for fresh tyres, Hamilton inherited lead, albeit with tyres 10 laps old. "This one I did not make any mistakes at all, which I'm really proud of".

"I don't think it was a huge mistake", he said. And it was just so positive for me.

Bottas and Raikkonen, both on older rubber, had to pit for new tyres, but Hamilton - despite being told to stop too, only before changing his mind at the last moment - stayed out on track.

Wolff said: "Kimi was unlucky in a few races at the beginning of the season, where the strategy went against him, and I think that Ferrari struggled to come up with the right call there". If the stewards find him guilty, he will lose the top position to Bottas and his championship lead margin on Vettel will come down to 10 points instead of current 17points.
