Despite major technical changes to chassis suspension setup this weekend, the performance of each team appeared to vary little. Mercedes continue to waltz off into the distance, dropping only the bare minimum of points on Sunday, while behind them defending champions Red Bull do their utmost to maintain the gap to third.

Williams were the big winners from the race in Germany, their one-man team of Bottas netting enough points to leapfrog Ferrari's one-man team of Alonso for third. Thus far they've managed to pick up a position a race for the past three events, sadly Red Bull are just too far ahead to pass next weekend in Hungary. Third position however is a magnificent achievement from a team that ended 2013 way down in ninth, with the only disappointment for Williams being the wasted opportunity to pull even further ahead than they currently are.

Underachievers of the day must surely be the McLaren team, who rushed forward aerodynamic upgrades for this race, were first to confirm changes to their suspension last week and still saw Force India stretch the gap ahead.
