Ten of the best pictures which tell the story of the 2019 German Grand Prix weekend.
It was a frustrating weekend for Lando Norris. A better problem compromised his attempt to get out of Q1, and his race was ruined by a power unit failure just after he got ahead of his team mate.
Mick Schumacher donned his split ‘father-and-son’ helmet design as he took his dad’s Ferrari F2004 for a spin.
Race sponsors Mercedes produced a retro-themed car and donned old-fashioned garb for the race weekend. Unfortunately for them, their home race yielded their worst result of the season so far.
Formula 1’s standing wet start procedure was used for the first time and went without a hitch, though both Red Bull drivers got away poorly.
Haas gambled during an early Safety Car, and briefly had Kevin Magnussen up to second.
Daniel Ricciardo’s Renault let go in a big way, forcing him out on a rare day when a podium finish might have been possible.
Charles Leclerc and Pierre Gasly
The slippery run-off at the final two corners caught Charles Leclerc out. Pierre Gasly, who had a few spins of his own, pressed on.
Romain Grosjean and Kevin Magnussen
The Haas pair were at it again. Team Principal Guenther Steiner ordered Magnussen to let Romain Grosjean past after the pair made contact for the second race in a row.
The pyrotechnics at the end of the race were tame compared to the on-track fireworks. Max Verstappen won an unforgettable race.
