The outcome of the German Grand Prix could have been different had race control deployed the Safety Car after Adrian Sutil spun his Sauber to a stop in the middle of the track.

The decision not to, which left the Sauber stranded on track for over a lap, attracted criticism and questions over whether it was safe to have marshals running across a live track to retrieve the car.

Here’s how the German Grand Prix happened on Twitter.

The Safety Car took to the track early on, as Felipe Massa and Kevin Magnussen collided in turn one, the Williams turning upside down.

While overtaking Jenson Button, Lewis Hamilton apologised to his former team mate for what had happened on the previous lap.

For the fourth time in five races, Daniil Kvyat’s Toro Rosso failed – this time in spectacular fashion.
