Hockenheim - Lewis Hamilton may now be a sure bet to win his third consecutive Formula 1 world championship in 2016.
Earlier with a 43-point deficit to Mercedes team mate Nico Rosberg, a winning streak has seen Hamilton race into the summer break with a 19-point lead.
Italy's La Gazzetta dello Sport wrote: "He has become a winning machine."
Spain's Marca said the month of July was a "slap in the face" for Rosberg with no less than four defeats, while even Germany's Bild wondered: "Tick-tack - title gone?"

Team boss Toto Wolff left Hockenheim agreeing that, "on a good day", Hamilton is basically "unbeatable".
The 31-year-old Briton doesn't deny it.
Hamilton said: "I didn't know he (Wolff) would say that. I never feel invincible or unbeatable, but I do feel when I'm at my strongest, number one is where I will be."
Rosberg has lost it
Former F1 driver Franck Montagny suspects Hockenheim may be a big psychological blow for Rosberg, after dominating the weekend, setting pole but then messing up the start and struggling in the race.

He told Le Point newspaper: "For me, Nico Rosberg has lost the championship.
"I don't know if he will really enjoy the break now. I suspect he will be constantly looking for solutions, calling his engineers, and ultimately not resting.
"In any case, I am quite sure that Hamilton will take full advantage of the break."
