Vettel deflated as Hamilton storms to home race victory

5 things we learned from the British Grand Prix

It capped a dominant weekend for Hamilton in front of his home fans and the three-time world champion was assisted by Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas making up seven places to join him on the podium after finishing second.

"It's been a great team effort in combination with the tyres". Notably, the Mercedes driver stands third in driver standings after his wins in Austria and Bahrain. "It's a ideal weekend and well done to Lewis".

"This vehicle has been a little bit trickier to get used to and get the set-up right", explained Hamilton.

Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel said there was no need to panic after seeing his Formula One championship lead slashed to a single point on Sunday. Hamilton made a pit stop at lap 24 and came out with a five second deficit to Ferrari's Raikkonen, but the next lap had Ferrari calling Raikkonen to a pit stop and Hamilton pulled ahead by 10 seconds to practically finish the race barring a crash. "I'm interested to see what happens in the next race, I guess the Hungarian track should suit our vehicle better".

"We were planning on stopping on Lap 19 or something like that so I was able to extend it by quite a bit". The polycarbonate shield, placed on Vettel's Ferrari for the first time, is created to protect against flying debris while offering an unrestricted view.

"This weekend we've been able to exploit the full performance of our vehicle, particularly on both cars, more so than any other race so far this year", he said.

Bottas said: "I am really happy for this today". I train myself and know what to do to get myself ready. "In the morning, it was a little more tricky and, obviously the conditions were not easy, they were changing a lot, but the auto behaved as good as I think it could".

Max Verstappen was fifth for Red Bull ahead of Nico Hulkenberg of Renault, Sergio Perez and his Force India team-mate Esteban Ocon.

It could have been a lot worse, however, with Vettel looking at one point like failing to score - an outcome that would have sent Hamilton into the overall lead.

"I'll just keep trying to maximise and if the others want to crash in front of me they can".

"There is still work to do to get the auto more drivable and to be able to trust it more in the high-speed corners", Bottas said. After some expletives being shouted at in the Ferrari team radio, Raikkonen can swap his tires and rejoin in fourth place behind teammate Vettel.
