The British Grand Prix had it all, from spins, crashes and controversy, to a knock down, drag out fight for the win between Ferrari and Mercedes. Lewis Hamilton’s dream of sixth British Grand Prix victory and his fifth in a row was immediately ruined by a poor start and a spin after contact from Kimi Raikkonen sent him all the way to the back of the field on the opening lap, but his fight back to second place and the battles up and down the field made it a British Grand Prix to remember.
Up front, Sebastian Vettel dominated the day and only briefly lost the lead when he slipped behind Valtteri Bottas after taking new soft tires during the late race safety car period. His win on what has been Ferrari’s worst track in recent history will have Mercedes worried going forward.
Behind him, Bottas, Hamilton, Raikkonen, Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen put on an incredible show with fierce side by side racing and breathtaking passes around Silverstone’s flat-out corners.
Catch all the highlights here to relive one of the best races of the season and study all the story lines that will have F1 fans buzzing until the German Grand Prix at Hockenheim.
