was nothing predictable about an action packed german grand prix. red bull's max verstappen claimed his second win of the year, while ferrari's sebastien vettel drove his way into second place from the back of the grid. a day to forget though for the reigning world champion lewis hamilton as patrick gearey reports... one of those days for lewis hamilton. filthy weather, you're feeling sick, then you have to go to work and it is a safety car start. hamilton's firstjob was to somehow stay in front, when all behind was the wacky races. rain scrambles formula 1's precise engineering and strategy. this was charles leclerc, just as he was about to take the lead... no! a minute later, hamilton echoed that, going in seconds from winning to spinning and damaging his front wing. he arrived at the pits without an appointment. they'd have it ready as soon as they could. but in the meantime, max verstappen, third in the drivers‘ standings, went first in the race. these weren't
conditions to chase in. hamilton's shocking time in hockenheim got worse still. his team—mate valtteri bottas didn't even finish. all the while, steadily gaining in the rain was sebastian vettel, the german driver going from 20th to second, behind verstappen, dutch conqueror of the chaos and the winner of a race that was never clockwork, but definitely orange. patrick gearey, bbc news. it was amazing, of course, to win at the end but it was really tricky out there to make the right calls and you really had to remain focused. we peered onto the slick tyre at a little moment but made a nice 360 so it was nice. we enjoyed that. of course, to come out on top here, it was all about not trying to make too many mistakes and really tricky conditions but it was amazing to win. the world aquatics championship ended in gwangju, south korea, on sunday with caeleb dressel of the usa becoming the first man to win
eight medals at a single world championships. dressel helped his country to silver in the 4—by—100 metres medley relay, adding to his record breaking collection. the race was won by great britain in a thrilling finish, with adam peaty claiming his third gold of the championships in the process. peaty retained both his 50 metres and 100 metres breaststroke titles earlier in the week. meanwhile, the usa won the women's 4—by—100 metres medley relay final, setting a new world record in the process. the quartet of regan smith, lilly king, kelsi dahlia and simone manuel beat their own record with a time of 3 minutes, 50.40 seconds. australian swimmer shayna jack has said she will fight to clear her name after testing positive for a banned substance she says she did not knowingly consume. it forced her withdrawal before the championships began. swimming australia said she was notified of the result following an out—of—competition drug test onjune the 26th this year. she was suspended from the australian team and sent home from its pre—worlds training camp injapan.

and the rest of the sport today team, goodbye. good morning. some of us had some sunshine this weekend but others a weekend of relentless rain. in fact, it brought localised flooding. in greater manchester, rochdale, we had over 90 millimetres throughout the weekend. the rain was fairly relentless. a conveyor belt of wet weather that moved its way up through the south—east. you can see that quite clearly. some heavier bursts as well at times although it is starting to weaken as we speak. the story remains the same. this front is going to be with us throughout the day today. there it is on the satellite picture. we see some shower cloud up to the far north—east of scotland and that could bring some heavy, thundery downpours as well over the next few hours. plenty to talk about with monday's weather, starting off pretty
murky across scotland. low cloud, mist, still some showers lingering and our weather front sitting there through northern ireland and southern scotland. a week affair, moving its way steadily north to a band of showers. behind it, where we had heavy rain, a better day through north—west england and parts of the midlands, highs of 26. but down on the south—west, an area of low pressure which will bring through the isles of scilly and cornwall, some rain by the end of monday. this low pressure will continue to bring wet and windy weather across the country through tuesday. heavy, sharp, thundery downpours not out of the question on tuesday and gusts of winds, particularly down into the south—west on exposed coasts, of 45 and possibly 50 mph. brighter weather, so parts of aberdeenshire, running down across that east coast. that's where we will see the highest values of around 21 to 24 degrees. as we move out of tuesday, we're still going to see that low pressure, a significant player in the weather story, continuing to drift steadily east, it will take showers with it as well.
so on wednesday, it looks likely that the emphasis of the showers will be across southern scotland, through the north of england and eastern england as well. so it's a drier story further south and west and not too bad a day not too bad a day into northern ireland and maybe the far north—east of scotland again escaping with some decent weather. highest values of 18 to 22 degrees, just below where we should be, really, for the time of year. but as we move out of wednesday, high pressure will start to build, so thursday and friday quietens down and just warms up a little. so by the end of the working week, a drier theme but we certainly have changed the feel to our weather. fresher with some sunshine and showers and at times, some gusty winds.
