Sebastian Vettel wins British Grand Prix to extend title lead

Lewis Hamilton celebrates Silverstone win

When Vettel was asked to reply to Hamilton's comments, he brushed off suggestions Raikkonen went out of his way to ruin his title rival's race. And on the podium, there was no spraying of champagne with the Finn who had come home third despite being handed a 10-second penalty for the first lap incident.

He clearly felt Ferrari had gained from an opening lap crash, in the same way they had when Vettel collided with Hamilton's Mercedes team-mate Valtteri Bottas on the opening lap of the French Grand Prix two weeks ago.

Vettel was thus able to roll home and extend his World Championship lead even if Hamilton's run to second made for some very impressive damage limitation.

But Hamilton still managed to finish second after a storming drive. Vettel pitted from the lead, but Bottas stayed out, to lead on lap 34, as did Hamilton.

The front-runners all stopped for fresh rubber, promoting Hamilton to third. Five laps to go! This is getting interesting with nine laps to go. Hamilton stopped for new tyres after 25 laps and dropped back to sixth. Sebastian Vettel tries to overtake Bottas, but fails.

Elbows out, Valtteri: It's a shame Bottas' tyres didn't have the same fight the Finnish driver had.

The safety auto was out again after Romain Grosjean and Carlos Sainz collided. Sainz and Grosjean are out of the race, and are being checked by the medical staff.

Vettel had his neck taped up having complained of a problem earlier in the weekend, but could not hide his delight at seeing off Hamilton in front of his adoring British fans. Sauber's Marcus Ericsson loses control over his auto and crashes one of the safety walls.

An instant classic: This season's races seem to be swinging between boring processions and brilliant, memorable duels for the win.

Out came the safety auto again.

That early crossover creates the potential for undercut strategies, whereby the driver behind pits earlier than the auto in front in the hope of setting quicker lap times than his rival when in clear air and on fresh rubber. He held on to the lead as long as he could under attack from Vettel, who had a huge tyre advantage, with some of the gutsiest driving we've seen from the No.77 vehicle. Hamilton is already second, but the German has already had his first pit stop, while the Brit is still going on his current tires. The Ferraris experienced some tyre issues in free practice, but in Austria they had superior tyre life compared to Lewis Hamilton's Mercedes, which could be a big advantage if its replicated in Silverstone. He's now 22.118 second away from second-placed Valtteri Bottas, but he gets closer.

Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel just sprinted out for the lead when the lights went out and fought tooth and nail to keep the eye on the prize.

Driver of the day: Given how bleak his race chances looked ahead of the race, this should go to Hamilton - fighting back to second position from where he was deserves plaudits. Having lost control of his vehicle into Turn 1, the Mexican's auto went across the track and the pit exit, just as the two Williams drivers were heading out having started in the pit-lane. Lewis Hamilton is heard saying his auto is "broken".
