The charge that left Hamilton 'struggling to stand' after Silverstone

Sebastian Vettel opened up an eight-point lead at the top of the drivers' world championship yesterday when he wrecked Lewis Hamilton's home-race party and claimed an impressive victory for Ferrari in a thrilling British Grand Prix.

Hamilton was shunted by Raikkonen at the start of the race at turn three and had to fight back through the field after dropping to last place, eventually finishing second behind race victor Sebastian Vettel, in the sister Ferrari.

"The British Grand Prix is one of the four races that featured in the first year of the world championship back in 1950, and we want it to stay there for the long term, as this is one of the true homes of motorsport".

When asked about the incident in the post-race press conference, he said: "All I'll say there's now two races the Ferraris have taken out one of the Mercedes". Sometimes we say dumb s*** and we learn from it'.

Hamilton started his Mercedes badly from pole position and was hit by the other Ferrari of Kimi Raikkonen as he tried to cling on to third.

Vettel pitted but Mercedes kept Hamilton out, assuring him he was "the fastest guy by miles" with everything to play for on tyres that would last the distance.

Even if the lead has changed hands three times already, Ferrari, now also 20 points clear of Mercedes in the constructors' standings, are looking more and more like favourites.

Mercedes boss Toto Wolff said: "To put it in James Allison's words, this is either deliberate or incompetence".

While Lewis Hamilton backtracked on his criticism of Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen on Monday, the Italian team's chief Maurizio Arrivabene launched a scathing attack on the Mercedes team.


Valtteri Bottas admitted that not coming in under the Safety Car may have been a mistake as he slipped from P1 to P4 during the British Grand Prix.

Though the post was soon deleted, Minttu then told a fan who had defended Hamilton's blast: "Just to be clear, I was not talking about the driver but the team who was crying afterwards that someone did something on goal".

Raikkonen held off his Finnish compatriot Valteri Bottas to finish third despite a ten-second time penalty after admitting culpability in his collision with Hamilton. "You have to be elegant and know how to lose".

Bottas said: "I'm disappointed - our pace was good today and it was all going well for me, but I lost it in the last two corners".

Instead, Mercedes suspects the complaints over the team radio early in the race were triggered by how bad the auto felt in the turbulent air of other cars.

"I mean, he should be ashamed of himself, because he worked many years in Maranello, he took quite a bit of money from Maranello, as well". Bringing people closer to the sport is one thing, but asking them to help develop their sport is the next step.

Mercedes non-executive chairman Niki Lauda added: "The race was incredible". [It] was nothing to do with anger, I was literally just exhausted both physically and emotionally'.

Always at his best when riled, Hamilton scythed his way through the pack with demonic intensity.
