Hot on the heels of the British Grand Prix comes the German Grand Prix! This was a much better race for me, a race I controlled comfortably from start to finish, qualifying on pole and from there, pulling away from the pack reasonably quickly, despite being on hard tyres for most of the race.
I did briefly lose out at the start, slipping down to fourth by the first corner, but some fierce jostling saw me back into the lead around turns 1 to 4, and from there, it was smooth sailing. At my first two pit stops I lost the lead, but regained it after those ahead of me stopped (and also via some more bullish overtakes). I barely had anything to worry about during the course of the race, taking a much-needed win to close the gap on Button to eight points.
