P ole: Sebastian Vettel (Red Bull-Renault) 1.13.791 min

1. Fernando Alonso (Ferrari) 1: 27.38.864 h
2. Felipe Massa (Ferrari) + 4.196 s
3. Sebastian Vettel (Red Bull-Renault) + 5,121 s

There are whistles in the Motodrom when crossing the finish line and honoring the victory. Ferrari's double victory is controversial because the order is determined by the command post. Felipe Massa has the better start, but he is not allowed to win. Ferrari is playing Fernando Alonso on the card world title.

In the first turn with the soft tires, Massa has no trouble controlling his teammate. But then the hard rubber is on and the Brazilian has his problems. It takes too long for the Bridgestone rollers to reach operating temperature. Immediately after the pit stop, Alonso hangs full-size in the rear-view mirror.

Alonso calls for stable management in Hockenheim

The Spaniard starts several attacks, but keeps flashing. Once the two Ferraris almost touch each other. 'Ridiculous', it sounds from Alonso's radio. He reminds his race engineer Andrea Stella more and more often that he is faster than Massa. His racing engineer Rob Smedley listlessly passes the message on to Massa.

After listening twice, Ferrari's number two makes way. The people are raging. Stable management again, like on the A1-Ring in 2001 and 2002. Two years ago, stable management was still forbidden. The FIA ​​opens an investigation after the race. Ferrari has to pay a fine of $ 100,000. Afterwards it is agreed that the control of the box may intervene under certain circumstances. If it doesn't damage the sporting process too much.

German drivers follow behind at the home game

Ferrari dominates the German GP. The fastest in training, Sebastian Vettel, loses the race at the start. He wants to block Alonso and overlooks Massa. Vettel is third. Mercedes only plays a minor role. Nico Rosberg and Michael Schumacher move from starting positions 9 and 11 to positions eight and nine. A new diffuser is soft-boiled by the exhaust gases. The new rear wing does not work as desired.

Nico Hülkenberg cannot convert tenth place on the grid into World Championship points. 'Too much understeer, too much braking problems,' complained the formerWilliams pilot. Adrian Sutil also receives nothing. He complains that team-mate Vitantonio Liuzzi pushed him off in the early stages. Both are no longer present at the 2012 edition of the Grand Prix in Hockenheim.
