Sebastian Vettel made the most of his second set of soft tyres to beat Valtteri Bottas to the British GP win, a race that saw two Safety Cars and Lewis Hamilton recover to second.
Hamilton started from pole position, chasing his fifth successive victory at the British Grand Prix. It wasn’t to be.
He got bogged down at the start, passed by Vettel and Valtteri Bottas before being caught out by Kimi Raikkonen as the Finn missed his braking. Hamilton spun but stayed in the race, albeit down in 18th place.
“I think my car is broken. Right rear is damaged,” he told Mercedes but continued lapping and working his way through the field.
