Aston Martin Red Bull Racing had an amazing race in Germany. Max Verstappen took his second win of the season after a strong drive. Teammate Pierre Gasly retired after an incident with Alexander Albon at the end of the race.

Team principal Christian Horner reflects after the race: “What an unbelievable performance from Max and the team today and it took five pit stops to win that race. Max kept his head in tricky conditions, he had great pace when he needed it and he made that win happen. It’s fantastic for Honda to see two engines and both teams on the podium, and a massive congratulations go to Toro Rosso and Daniil Kvyat, who also became a father last night. The pit stop crew were unbelievable today and that was the reason for sending our chief mechanic, Phil Turner, up to collect the constructors’ trophy as he did an amazing job."

"For Pierre, it was a shame as he had sections of the race that were going really well for him and it looked like he would finish in the top five, but it wasn’t to be. He had an incident with Albon late in the race which I’ve only briefly seen, but thankfully both of them were unhurt and Pierre will bounce back.”
