Lewis: JB's third the only positive

Lewis Hamilton reckons his team-mate's return to the podium was probably the only positive to be taken from Sunday's German GP.


Starting seventh on the grid after a wet qualifying on Saturday, Hamilton had hoped to put McLaren's upgrades to good use and work his way through the field.

But it was not to be.

The McLaren driver suffered a puncture at Turn 1 on lap three and had to crawl his way around the circuit to get back to the pits.

That dropped him well down the order and although he attempted to fight his way back, Hamilton called it quits on lap 58 with a damaged car.

"I have no idea (how the car got damaged). I saw the debris come up and it damaged it," said the McLaren driver.

"The car felt terrible after that, the rear floor is damaged.

"The only positive I can take from this weekend is Jenson's result."
