The 2018 German Grand Prix is due to be held on 22 July 2018. After a one-year absence from the championship, the race returned to the Hockenheim Ring near Hockenheim in the German state of Baden-Württemberg. The circuit last held the race in 2016. It will be the eleventh round of the 2018 FIA Formula One World Championship, and marks the seventy-eighth running of the German Grand Prix, and the sixty-third time the race has been run as a round of the World Championship since the series’ inception in 1950.
Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel enters the round as the leader of the World Drivers’ Championship. Lewis Hamilton is in second place, eight points behind Vettel. In the World Constructors’ Championship, Ferrari hold a twenty-point lead over Mercedes.
Hamilton is getting hot under the collar once again, last meeting accusing the Ferrari team for deliberately crashing into the Mercedes team.
Replying to Hamilton’s remarks, Raikkonen’s wife, Minttu, also took to Instagram, suggesting, in a post, now deleted, “If you cry like a girl when you lose… do ballet.”
In a subsequent response to a fan who defended Hamilton, she added, “Just to be clear, I was not talking about the driver but the team who was crying afterwards that someone did something on purpose… No he didn’t. It’s called racing.”
There are definite signs that Hamilton is losing his cool.
