Lewis Hamilton of Mercedes took advantage of a good start to win the German Formula One Grand Prix and boost his overall standings lead over his team-mate Nico Rosberg to 19 points in the Drivers' Championship on Sunday.

Hamilton claimed his fourth consecutive win as he finished ahead of second-place Daniel Ricciardo, and his Red Bull teammate Max Verstappen who completed the podium.

Nico Rosberg produced a fantastic yet controversial late lap to snatch Pole Position at the Hungaroring from Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton as the German side produced their sixth front row lockout of the 2016 season. Rosberg's pole was the 26th of his career, his second at the Hungaroring Circuit and fourth of the 2016 season so far.

Reigning world champion Lewis Hamilton looked on course for yet another pole position, but yellow flags due to an error by Fernando Alonso forced the Briton to abort his final quick lap. Rosberg, who was also affected by the yellow flags, took advantage of being ahead of Hamilton on the track and slowed down at the appropriate place before stepping on the accelerator to set a 1:19.965 lap, the sole sub 1 minute 20 second lap of the day.

Mercedes star Lewis Hamilton closed the gap between himself and Championship leader Nico Rosberg down to just 4 points by winning the British Grand Prix at Silverstone for the fourth time in his career, and may yet head to Hungary in a couple of weeks' time as the Championship Leader as the stewards mull over Mercedes giving Nico Rosberg advice over the radio on how to fix his gearbox issue, something that is currently banned by Formula One rules.

The race start was ruined by the weather with the drivers getting underway behind the Safety Car, with a bunch of cars then heading straight into the pits to switch from the full wets to the intermediates. That decision proved costly as an error from Pascal Wehrlein forced a period of the virtual safety car, allowing the leading quartet to head to the pits without any loss of time, immediately breaking up the pack into those competing for a podium finish and all the rest.

Another record breaking day for Lewis Hamilton saw the British driver pick up the 55th Pole Position of his career, his 6th of the 2016 season and his 4th at Silverstone, perhaps most crucially finishing ahead of Mercedes teammate and arch rival Nico Rosberg, as the Silver Arrows locked out the front row for the fifth time this season.

Both Lewis and Nico eclipsed the previous circuit record, set by Hamilton in 2013, but it the Britisher who was the quicker of the two, setting a time of 1:29.287 in his final run, good enough for P1 tomorrow. Incidentally, he had gone even quicker in Q2, wherein he set a time of 1:29.243. Rosberg's best time of the day was a 1:29.607 lap.

Lewis Hamilton secured the 53rd Pole Position of his career, beating Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg by 0.062 seconds to the best starting place on the grid for tomorrow's Canadian Grand Prix. The front row lockout for Mercedes is the fourth time they have achieved that feat this season, a relative rarity considering how they are running away with the Constructors' Championship once again this year.

Amazingly enough Hamilton and Rosberg produced their quickest runs in their first flying lap in Q3, failing to improve their respective times in their second runs on the UltraSoft Pirelli tyre.

Lewis Hamilton picked up his first win of the 2016 Formula One season, and chose a great venue to do it, winning the Monaco Grand Prix, beating Pole sitter Daniel Ricciardo of Red Bull Racing by a little over 7 seconds in what was an incredibly exciting race, especially over the first hour or so. Sergio Perez of Force India picked up a memorable third place finish, quelling a late challenge from 4-time world champion Sebastian Vettel in the Ferrari.

The race started behind the Safety Car as steady rain left the track wet, forcing the drivers to stay in formation for the first 7 laps. Nico Rosberg was clearly not on the pace today, and the world championship leader was holding back Hamilton in third place as Ricciardo opened up a 12 second gap. Mercedes eventually ordered Rosberg to move over and let Hamilton through, a decision that could prove costly in the end to Rosberg's aspirations of winning his first Drivers' Championship with the German finishing a poor seventh today, seeing his lead over Hamilton cut down to 24 points as a result of Hamilton's win.

Red Bull Racing brought their excellent form from Spain to Monaco this weekend with Daniel Ricciardo stunning the battling Mercedes duo of Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton to take the first pole position of his career.

Ricciardo made the most of the upgrades to his engine - which gives him an extra 30bhp of raw pace - to beat Rosberg to pole by 0.169 seconds.
