[YesAuto F1 Formula One] The British and German F1 Grand Prix has come to an end. In the two races, a British driver and a German driver won the championship respectively in their home country races.

● British race

Hamilton won the British championship. Teammate Rosberg was in the first leading camp with him until the 47th lap of Rosberg's gearbox malfunctioned and unfortunately retired.

On the first lap after the start, Raikkonen ran too aggressively and rushed outside the shoulder when exiting the corner. On the way back to the track at high speed, he tripped on the shoulder, lost control and hit the wall, and bounced back into the race Across the road. On the way to the rebound, Massa couldn't dodge and collide with him. In the end, Raikkonen’s car was scrapped and he injured his right ankle; Massa’s car returned to the pit with “three feet” and re-entered after repairs. This was his 200th F1 race.

In this chaos, Hamilton chased from sixth to fourth, closely following Rosberg, Button and Magnussen. After the second start, Hamilton quickly caught up to second place. On lap 47, the lead Rosberg retired due to a gearbox failure. Hamilton took the opportunity to surpass Rosberg, and from then on to the end of the race.

The Williams team's Bottas used a pit stop strategy to raise his ranking to second place. Ricardo and Patton fought for the third place until the end. Ricardo insisted on defending when the tires ran out, and finally got third place. Force India's Hulkenberg finished seventh. This is currently the only driver other than Alonso who insists on getting points at every stop.

● Germany Grand Tournament

In the German race, Rosberg won his first German championship. As a German driver, driving a German chariot, winning the German championship is really exciting. In fact, Rosberg also has Finnish nationality, and Bottas, who ranked second on the grid and finished runner-up, is also a Finn. So it can also be said that the German race was “occupied” by the Finns.

Bottas of the Williams team continued to perform well in the last stop in the UK and won the runner-up with excellent results. Hamilton finished third in this station, but this third is not easy to come by. Towards the end of the first stage of qualifying, the Mercedes-Benz team had to replace the damaged gearbox due to a failure of the front right brake and unfortunately a car crashed out of control. This also resulted in Hamilton being punished by the Auto Union, five places behind on the grid. Hamilton was temporarily ranked fifth in the crash, and fell behind to 15th place after the end of the qualifying. After receiving a penalty from the Auto Federation, he had to start from 20th place.

So Hamilton put on soft formula tires from the beginning of the race and kept doing one thing: overtaking. The opponents he surpassed include Raikkonen and Ricardo. They were surpassed by Hamilton in a hairpin turn at Turn 13. However, on lap 30, when Hamilton tried to overtake Button, the two cars accidentally collided slightly, and the front spoiler of Hamilton's car was damaged. This may be the reason why he lost his chance to compete with Bottas for second place.

In addition to Hamilton's overtaking drama, another highlight of the game was Alonso's desperate fight with Vettel and Ricardo. In the end, Vettel finished fourth, and Alonso narrowly beat Ricciardo with a slight advantage of 0.082 seconds to get fifth. Alonso currently has a nickname among car fans “Kogoro”, who is known for being good at finishing fifth. This time, “Kogoro” did not disappoint the car fans.

Hulkenberg of the Force India team maintained a steady and steady strategy, maintaining a strategy of getting points at every stop. He finished seventh on this site. McLaren's Patton's “two progress strategy” did not work as it should, and eventually ended in eighth place.

The unlucky one was Massa. He was topped by McLaren's Magnussen in the first corner. He was directly topped up, and unfortunately retired. Magnussen did not retire and finished ninth. Also retired was Russian driver Kvyat, whose car unfortunately caught fire during the race and had to withdraw from the race.

This year's F1 seems to be a bit less worth looking forward to, because there is no suspense about the victory of the Mercedes team. Fortunately, in these two races, the local championships won by the two drivers in their respective countries made the audience a little excited for them. Maybe when we are watching the game, we can not take the score so seriously. It is a pleasing thing to watch masters compete and fight on the field, no matter who wins or loses.
