We wondered if Lewis Hamilton might make British Grand Prix history this weekend. We wondered if the Briton might regain the drivers' championship lead. We wondered if he might follow the success of the England football team he loves to cheer on.
It didn't work out that way. It used to be the England footballers who always got beaten by the Germans. But at Silverstone today, that narrative was transferred to F1 - as Sebastian Vettel came out on top.
F1 takes a break next weekend - and it's been a while since we've said that. Then we go to Germany, and do it all again. If it's anywhere near as exciting as today's race, it'll be well worth you joining us.
Thanks for your company and your comments - we'll see you for all the fun at Hockenheim.
