Vettel wins thrilling British GP as Hamilton recovers to second

British Grand Prix: Unhappy Lewis Hamilton points fin.. 'interesting tactics' after finishing second in race

Afterwards, Hamilton lamented being unable to delivery victory for home fans which would have also seen him nail a record sixth British Grand Prix.

Raikkonen was awarded a ten-second penalty for his trouble, which was at least double the sanction given to his team-mate Vettel for wiping Valterri Bottas a week ago but nowhere near the handicap suffered by Hamilton.

Hamilton's Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas was third quickest, ahead of Kimi Raikkonen in the second Ferrari, Daniel Ricciardo of Red Bull and, unexpectedly, Fernando Alonso of McLaren.

Hamilton lost his championship lead to Ferrari rival Sebastian Vettel due to not finishing in Austria.

There were many factors in Sebastian Vettel's British GP win: first-lap tangles, safety cars, strategies and last-gasp passing.

Vettel, however, who now leads Hamilton by eight points in the title standings, vehemently denied any foul play.

Hartley's scary FP3 crash ended his weekend - the damage sustained ruling him out of qualifying and eventually the race itself.

Republicans Back From Russia Have Advice for Trump Before Putin Summit
Trump floated the idea of spending 4 percent of GDP on military, a mark that no one except the United States is even close to. Officials had been awaiting the first meeting as an indicator of Mr Trump's mood and they soon had their answer.

"It was my mistake, that's fine".

"We got so much support", he went on, adding in a waspish swipe at Ferrari: "Interesting tactics, I would say, from their side, but we'll do what we can to fight them". Hamilton was on a charge from the first lap, back up to seventh already after nine laps but still 26 seconds behind his fellow four-times world champion. "There was 15 or 16 laps until the end with mediums that would last".

Hamilton recovered to second place while Raikkonen took third spot, having been handed a 10-second time penalty, which he served at his first pit stop.

The appearance of the safety auto on the 33rd of 52 laps, after Sauber's Marcus Ericsson crashed, was greeted with a huge cheer from the 140,500 crowd and was just what Hamilton needed to close the gap.

The German finished 2.264 seconds ahead of Hamilton for his fourth win of the season, denying Hamilton what would have been a fifth straight win in his home race. "I gave everything I could, I was struggling to stand". That's actually pretty good news, considering the disastrous start by Hamilton. "There is no way I am going to be able to compete with these guys on old tyres", he said.

"If our two drivers make a mistake twice and take the same team out, I would be apologizing".

"Obviously we're in a tough battle this year and it's the most intense battle that I think we've probably all had but I'm very, very grateful that the auto was still in one piece after the first turn three incident".
