Lewis Hamilton claims his fifth British Grand Prix

Lewis Hamilton claims his fifth British Grand Prix”

Speaking to NBCSN's Robin Miller, Hunter-Reay said about the battle, "Yeah he gave me a nudge, I got back by him, I was loose in Turn 6, and I got in there pretty deep, he got by me".

For once in 2017, everything ran like clockwork for Lewis Hamilton.

Bottas then inherited second when Raikkonen suffered the tyre issue, with Verstappen pitting late as a precaution and rejoining in fourth, ending a run of three successive retirements. Hamilton's lifestyle is one that is often called into question, but cannot be used against him if he delivers. I just wanted to bring it home.

Hamilton so often excels in the wet.

Toto Wolff believes Lewis Hamilton answered his critics with his performance during the British Grand Prix weekend, after coming under fire for missing a recent F1 event.

"So all of the talk outside has no relevance to me". So it's the really fast swervy stuff in which they lacked something. "It was clear on the data and nothing happened". F1 chairman Chase Carey and Sean Bratches, the sport's new commercial boss, were given their first taste of the famous race this year, and it is unlikely that the passionate display by 350,000 spectators in attendance over the weekend will have gone unnoticed.

Title contender Hamilton had a similar problem at the previous round in Austria which Bottas won after qualifying on pole.

Brazilian driver Felipe Massa missed the second half of the 2009 season when driving for Ferrari. "And if we lost the British Grand Prix, that industry would go down".

Another race, and another DNF for Fernando Alonso.

Formula One owners Liberty Media are confident that the British Grand Prix will remain on the race calendar beyond 2019 despite Silverstone's owners activating a break clause in their contract. Bottas was on the fly having ditched his soft tyres for super-softs', fighting his way back behind Vettel.

The 51-lap race had a few exciting moments at the start including a safety car period. Indeed it appears that a deal to use Mercedes engines next season is some distance from being finalised. Vettel tried, Verstappen parried.

"Behind me was one of the Force Indias, who then came in, so there was no-one behind me, but literally as I was about to get on the gas I looked in the mirror and saw there was a car coming". He ran seven laps in second place, gradually falling away, before pitting on lap 32. He heads to Budapest on a huge high and with the prospect of a fourth world championship looking more likely after Sunday's result.

On the next lap, Bottas was much closer to Vettel on Hangar Straight and swept around the outside of Vettel with ease before they reached Stowe.

"I was basically three, four seconds off the pace".
