Twitter Goes After Lewis Hamilton For Suggesting Foul Play with Kimi's Clash

Lewis Hamilton

Lewis Hamilton suffered the worst possible start to his British GP after being hit by Kimi Raikkonen at the start of the race and dropping down the field.

He fell to 16th but recovered to second, ahead of Raikkonen who completed the podium.

The polesitter had already been overtaken by Sebastian Vettel and Valtteri Bottas at the start.

"The safety vehicle spiced it up", said Vettel.

Vettel had already assumed the lead after jumping Hamilton off the line and built a commanding lead in the first part of the opening stint, opening up a six-second gap over Bottas. On cue, Marcus Ericsson lost it through Abbey on lap 33. It seemed as though Vettel would not be able to push past the Mercedes.

No wonder, then, that Vettel was so elated on Sunday afternoon at a circuit that had seen Hamilton win for the previous four years and Mercedes for the last five.

Hamilton was not convinced.

He said the building across from his shop "literally lifted up". "People were scrambling", said Owen, who lives above his shop. Police said they were called to the area around 6:20 p.m. for complaints of the smell of gas, and then there was an explosion.

"It's easy for you to sit and watch the race".

She later removed the entry and, when addressing a fan who defended Hamilton, she added: "Just to be clear, I was not talking about the driver but the team who was crying afterwards that someone did something on goal". Maybe we would have had a chance at the end to attack with no Safety Car but its two maybe's.

Racing had scarcely resumed when Romain Grosjean (Haas) and Carlos Sainz (Renault) sparked another safety vehicle by clashing at the high speed Copse corner, leaving a 10-lap sprint to the finish.

Hamilton now trails Vettel by one point as he looks to create history and become a five-time F1 world champion.

Williams had another hard qualifying session after showing early Friday promise, as both cars failed to progress from Q1 once again. "I took the 10 seconds and kept fighting". With four laps to go Hamilton rounded his team-mate, whose rear tyres, four laps older the Hamilton's, had lost meaningful traction.

Kevin Magnussen ensured Haas did score some points in ninth as Pierre Gasly stole 10th place in the final laps from Sergio Perez, who was spun around at the first corner, with a feisty move through the Vale and Club section. In F1 folklore as written by former McLaren leader Ron Dennis, second was always first of the losers. "My team did an fantastic job this weekend, we got so much support". I am anxious because both Ferraris are directly behind us and they are very fast in the straights and in the corners.

Hamilton recovered to second, aided by Mercedes decision not to pit him for fresh tyres under a safety auto to gain track position, but looked tense alongside Raikkonen while the top three waited to go onto the podium post-race.
