Hamilton delight at victory

Lewis Hamilton admitted he was looking forward to his summer break after cruising to a comfortable win in the German GP at Hockenheim.

The world champion won his sixth race in the last seven starts to overturn a deficit to Nico Rosberg, with Hamilton now leading the German by 19 points in the drivers' standings.

Rosberg was penalised for an overtaking manouevre on Red Bull's Max Verstappen and eventually finished fourth behind Verstappen and his Red Bull team-mate Daniel Ricciardo, who was second.

With the sport breaking for four weeks, Hamilton said he was going to enjoy his holidays.

"A big thank you to everyone who has come out," he said. "To see so many people here is great. What a race, what a fantastic start. It was just about keeping it cool.

"This is a very proud position to be in and thank you to the team, who did a fantastic job.

"I didn't make any mistakes so in my heart I'm happy with what I did. Yesterday was not perfect but you learn from those things.

"The whole team has worked very hard for the first part of the season. We all need a break because it has been really well earned."
