Daniel Ricciardo, Red Bull, Hockenheimring, 2014Lewis Hamilton wasn’t the only driver with some overtaking to do at the Hockenheimring – two other drivers had to make recovery runs following a first-lap collision.

While Hamilton worked his way up from 20th on the grid to finish on the podium, Kevin Magnussen lost 17 places on lap one after a collision with Felipe Massa, leaving him 21st and last.

McLaren took the opportunity to change his tyres during the Safety Car period, and by the time of his second pit stop on lap 29 he had broken into the top ten. Out of sequence with several other drivers, he was soon back into the points and stayed there, finishing ninth.

Daniel Ricciardo had to take evasive action when Massa flipped over at the first corner, and as lap one ended he had fallen ten places to 15th. But once the race resumed he picked off several of his rivals, even as he had to fend off advances from the pursuing Hamilton.

The Red Bull’s poor straight line speed has blunted its usefulness for overtaking, bur nevertheless Ricciardo disposed of Pastor Maldonado, Esteban Gutierrez and Romain Grosjean in successive laps, followed by Adrian Sutil and Jean-Eric Vergne as well.

He even managed to get Kimi Raikkonen between himself and Hamilton at one stage. But as his tyres began to fade Raikkonen mounted a counter-attack, and Hamilton dived into the melee to pass the pair of them.

Ricciardo used an aggressive early stop to cement the gains he had made so far. He took Button, who was struggling with his tyres, in the closing stages. But despite a valiant effort he had to cede fifth place to Alonso. There wasn’t much in it at the flag, however – Ricciardo crossed the line less than a tenth of a second behind his rival.

  1. Actually that’s not bad from Hamilton, I’m sure Nico would’ve gone faster if he was under pressure.
    Compare Nico and Valterri in the final few laps, he suddenly matches Rosberg’s pace when Lewis catches him, its like he was conserving the tyres for when it mattered.

    1. During the live chat, I said Mercedes should be more attacking for Lewis… how erratic they got is shown in the stint lengths.. 25, 17, 8, 17 (trying to cover for a safety car). They could have swapped to an attacking 3 stop, once Lewis started losing ground around lap 20. If not 3 SS stints, then 20-20-14-14 sounds good to me, surely giving a better chance to secure 2nd position on fresher tyres.

        Hamilton’s strategy looks very odd indeed. Although I liked the idea of doing a very long first stint, it turned out to be an unfortunate move, as he had to pit early (lap 42) in order not to be overtaken by Bottas again. His last stint should definitely be on the harder tyre so he would have had a permanent grip advantage over Bottas. Possibly Mercedes initially intended to do Rosberg’s strategy in reverse, but they had to switch so it didn’t really work out too well.

        However, if he had pitted in lap 20, he would probably still be ahead of Ricciardo, so that at least would have saved him some time. Two 20-lap stints on softs and two shorter stints on supersofts definitely looks better.

  2. hamilton should have been put on softs for his final stint. his remaining pair only had a few laps on them from Q1.
