Nico Rosberg must be floating on a cloud at the moment having won his home race the German Grand Prix on Sunday, got married and seen Germany win the World Cup all in one week.
Rosberg has opened a 14 point lead ahead of Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton in the drivers’ championship, but the Brit said he is up for the challenge and still focused on winning his second world title.
Hamilton finished third in Hockenheim and said he believes it is vital he closes the gap on Rosberg at Sunday’s Hungarian Grand Prix, the 11th of 19 races this season and the last before F1’s summer break.
Hamilton felt he might have beaten Williams’s Valtteri Bottas to second place if he had not damaged his front wing passing Jenson Button’s McLaren at the Turn Five hairpin half-way through the race.
All this drama was watched by the Formula 1 Fans of the Cayman Islands at Pirates Den in West Bay Road.
Being vacation time, the club only had 22 for the delayed TV showing.
They had a plethora of door prizes, 12 in total, so the chances of winning were pretty good. They raised $117 in cash and a small amount of supplies for the Humane Society.
Among the prize winners were Gina Athey, Scot Kristal, Julie Blais, Ade Doherty, Sylvester Wong and Danny Roach. Prizes were provided by Henrik Lindhardt of Power Flower, Automotive Art Cayman, RUBIS Caribbean and Vanity Salon.
Sunday’s Hungarian race is showing at PD’s from 9 a.m.
