Sebastian Vettel wins British GP as Lewis Hamilton claws back second spot – video
In a thrilling race with two safety car periods, reigning champion Hamilton went from pole position to the rear of the field before finishing second for Mercedes in a superb fightback.
Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen was third, after incurring a 10-second penalty for tangling with the slow-starting Hamilton at the third corner of the opening lap, which sent the Briton spinning.
The win was Vettel’s fourth of the season, 51st of his career, and champions Mercedes’ first defeat at Silverstone since 2012 before the V6 turbo era started.
