We've now passed the halfway point of the season; Lewis Hamilton's frustrating start is a distance memory - the last 7 races turning things around - leaving his previously unstoppable Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg to do the title chasing.
Today Hamilton dominated yet again, taking his 4th win in a row at the German Grand Prix, his 6th of the year and a 19 point lead in the Formula One championship. "It feels like only a couple of weeks ago I was finding it hard to think how I could find my way through the trees" (Hamilton)

Hamilton celebrates his win with the 'dab' (the trademark celebration of America's NFL Cam Newton), jumps on his car, bows to the crowd and hugs anyone he can get hold of on his team; pleased with this victory?
Despite some uneasy moments and an apparent struggle for pace, Hamilton cruised to a comfortable victory in Hungary - leading from start to finish. He controlled the race from when he passed Rosberg on the first corner of the 1st lap and he is now 6 points ahead of him in the championship.

Hamilton led every lap, taking a 4th Silverstone win – which puts him alongside Nigel Mansell in the record books. He is also the only driver to have won here 3 times in a row, although Jim Clark won 4 in a row during the 1960s when the British Grand Prix alternated between Brands Hatch, Aintree and Silverstone. He is now just one point behind Rosberg in the championship – who was given a 10 second post-race time penalty for receiving illegal coaching over the radio.
He celebrated by crowdsurfing the home fans, glowing: "On this day, we come together and it is a beautiful thing."

In resplendent Monaco, famed for its beautiful people and warm climate......it rained.
This turned out to be a great leveller for Hamilton and Ricciardo who could prove that precision driving and confidence in wet conditions would triumph on a track that Nelson Piquet once likened to "riding a bicycle around your living room." Rosberg admitted he suffered "a complete lack of confidence in those conditions" citing brake and tyre issues. There were also seven non-finishers due to the difficulties that the weather created.

The Brazilian Grand Prix 2015 did not disappoint and the outcome was a second win in a row for Nico Rosberg over his fellow team mate Lewis Hamilton.
Lewis failed to capitalise on some great times in practice and it was Nico who from pole position raced in front at all the important first corner and lead from there to win the race, though Lewis was snapping at his heals throughout the race.
The mercedes drivers were in the driving seat so to speak for the whole of the race and the other teams didnt get a look in. The main battle was between the rivals in the Mercedes team with Lewis looking faster but just couldn`t find a way past Nico.
Can`t wait for the race in São Paulo in 2016, check out our great racing packages and see the race in Brazil firsthand!
