German GP 2018

This season is crossing its middle point as F1 heads to Germany which holds the 11th out of the 21 Grand Prix this year. The first-ever, and probably last, triple-header has been completed with Ferrari and Vettel being the winners. Hamilton is hoping to close the 8-point gap to Vettel while Bottas needs to finally get a break and start winning some good points.

The model is giving Hamilton a 57% chance over Vettel in qualifying but predicts the German to come on top in the race (52% over Lewis). While the last time F1 visited the Hockenheimring back in 2016 Mercedes and Red Bulls were fighting for the podium positions, this time I expect the Ferraris to be strong in a GP only a 90 minutes drive far from Mercedes’ headquarters. Let’s also see if Leclerc can surprise us one more time. Will he be given a position in the Prancing Horse next year?

Ricciardo’s got a penalty due to exceeding the season-long limit for certain power unit components and is going to start last.
