Lap 60

Thank you for joining us today. I hope you enjoyed the race and make sure you keep checking ESPNF1 this afternoon for all the news and reaction following another fantastic grand prix.

Hamilton wins at the Nurburgring, 3.9 seconds ahead of Alonso. Webber comes through for third. A brilliant race.

Vettel takes fourth ahead of Massa and Sutil comes through for sixth on a two-stop strategy.

Hamilton sounds ecstatic over the team radio and thanks his team for pushing. It was a close race at the end but McLaren appeared to measure the life of the soft tyres just about right.

Alonso has stopped on track and Webber has stopped to pick him up. Ferrari confirmed on the radio that Alonso's car ran out of fuel.

Hamilton starts his final lap.

Massa and Vettel pit. Ferrari have a slow stop and Red Bull get Vettel ahead.

Lap 59

Vettel was told to do the opposite of Massa but the message didn't get through and the two of them will pit at the end of the penultimate lap.

Lap 58

Hamilton has just set the fastest first sector, proving that these medium tyres aren't too bad once they are up to temperature and on a low fuel load.

The most interesting battle is now between Massa and Vettel they both need to pit once more with two laps remaining.

Lap 57

Now Webber pits and Hamilton retakes his lead. Alonso holds second, 2.9s behind the lead McLaren.

Sutil is looking good for a sixth place finish. Schumacher pits from seventh.

Lap 56

Webber stays out again, it's hard to see what he is gaining here. He needs the medium tyres to finish the race and is losing time to Hamilton and Alonso every lap he stays out on the softs.

Lap 55

Webber does not pit and completes another slow lap to lose more time to Hamilton. This has swung back into McLaren's hands, fascinating stuff and it's all down to the Pirelli tyres.

Meanwhile Vettel and Massa are still battling hard with the Ferrari leading the Red Bull by 0.4s. They both have to pit once more.
