German Grand Prix: Vettel breaks jinx to win Germany in July

Pastor Maldonado had appeared on course for Williams' first points of the year, only to be robbed by a faulty tyre change at his final stop. The Venezuelan eventually sunk to 15th, behind Esteban Gutierrez and ahead of Williams team-mate Valtteri Bottas while Charles Pic overcame his own gremlins to win the battle of the backmarkers ahead of Caterham team-mate Giedo van der Garde and Marussia's Max Chilton.

Vettel's victory - his fourth of the year – re-established his advantage over Alonso to 34 points, with Red Bull enjoying a 67-point cushion over Mercedes in the constructors' table heading into a three-week break before Hungary.

Ptolemy, I agree with you, don't forget KR was on used softs at his last pit stop. It's FA on new softs that should of been able to get a podium. Vettel is a true champion except it people.
