Hamilton eager to move on

28th July 2019, 19:27 by Tom Hill

Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton says his team must move on quickly after he failed to claim any points in the German Grand Prix.

The Brit finished 11th in Hockenheim on Sunday after making two big mistakes during an entertaining race.

Team-mate Valtteri Bottas failed to finish after crashing out and Mercedes finished a race weekend without any points for the first time in 13 months.

Hamilton had led until lap 29 but an error on Turn 16 caused him to lose his front wing and his pit crew were not expecting him to return to the paddock.

A 50-second pit stop ruined his chances of victory and the former McLaren driver says the whole team must move on quickly.

He told Sky Sports F1: "It's been a bad day - bad weekend."

"There's not really much to say. It's probably the worst day I've had in the office for a long, long time. It's not been an easy weekend overall. But I was leading the race and I was feeling good. It wasn't meant to be this weekend," said the world champion in his later press conference.

"I'm only human. I don't know what else to say, it was a mistake and mistakes happen."
