Youngest podium ever
The German Grand Prix featured the youngest podium in Formula One history. Lewis Hamilton, Nelson Piquet Jr and Felipe Massa combined for an average age of 24 years, 7 months and 1 day - narrowly beating the previous record that was set in the 2003 Hungarian Grand Prix, with Fernando Alonso, Kimi Raikkonen and Juan Pablo Montoya combining an age of 24 years, 7 months and 12 days.
Thanks to a bold strategy and a well-timed safety car period, Renault's Piquet was able to climb up from the 14th place he occupied before the safety car intervention to a second place at the finish. This is Nelsinho's first podium at his tenth race start.
The Brazilian was also able to complete his first six laps in the lead when Heidfeld went in for his second pitstop.
