Lewis Hamilton dominated on home turf this weekend as his victory at the Silverstone Circuit meant he matched Jim Clark’s record of five victories at the British Grand Prix.
Valtteri Bottas crossed the line in second place to complete a solid Mercedes 1 – 2, despite starting from ninth on the grid after incurring a five-place grid penalty for a gearbox change.
The strong performance from Mercedes means that they are now 55 points ahead of Ferrari in the constructors’ championship.
Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen completed the podium. The Finn would have crossed the line in second if it wasn’t for one of his tyres collapsing at the death.
Both Red Bulls drove solid races as Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo crossed the line in fourth and fifth respectively and Nico Hulkenberg equalled his best finish of the season in sixth.
A tyre failure for Sebastian Vettel on the penultimate lap also meant that the four-time world champion could only finish seventh and is now just one point ahead of Hamilton in the drivers’ championship. Esteban Ocon, Sergio Perez and Felipe Massa rounded out the top 10.
Here’s the ratings from the race.
