The 2018 German Grand Prix (formally known as the Formula 1 Emirates Großer Preis von Deutschland 2018) was a Formula One motor race held on 22 July 2018. After a one-year absence from the championship (the previous race was in 2016), the race returned to the Hockenheimring near Hockenheim in the German state of Baden-Württemberg. It was the eleventh round of the 2018 FIA Formula One World Championship, and it marked the 77th running of the German Grand Prix, and the 63rd time the race had been run as a round of the World Championship since the series' inception in 1950.

Before the race, Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel was the leader of the World Drivers' Championship, while Lewis Hamilton was in second place, eight points behind Vettel. In the World Constructors' Championship, Ferrari held a twenty-point lead over Mercedes. Hamilton won the race from 14th on the grid, leading a Mercedes 1–2 ahead of teammate Valtteri Bottas after race leader Vettel crashed out. The race was not without controversy as Hamilton was seen to abort a planned pit stop late in the race, cutting across the infield to rejoin the circuit. He was reprimanded for the rules violation, but was allowed to keep his race win. As a result of the race, Mercedes and Hamilton advanced to the first places in the Constructors' and the Drivers' championship standings respectively.[2]
