Crashes galore: Lewis Hamilton, Charles Leclerc and Valtteri Bottas all hit barriers in wet German GP - in pictures

Max Verstappen prevailed at a wet Hockenheim on a day when most of the top runners literally hit trouble

Mercedes-GP drivers Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas both hit the barriers at Hockenheim on Sunday as the German Grand Prix proved to be the most action-packed race of 2019.

Championship leader Hamilton led half of the race, but hit the barriers in damp conditions.

He escaped with just a broken front wing but finished outside the points for the first time this season in 11th, as Red Bull Racing's Max Verstappen triumphed.

Bottas crashed late on and retired from the race after trying to reach a podium place.

It was not just the Mercedes boys who had a tough day as Charles Leclerc's Ferrari, the Renault of Nico Hulkenberg and Racing Point's Sergio Perez also crashed.
