Sebastian Vettel won the grand prix, extending his points lead in the championship to eight. This is the fourth German victory in the season and 51st in his career.

He was 0.093 seconds faster than Ferrari's Raikkonen and 0.642 better than Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas.

"People expect you to wave and smile, but I was having trouble standing up".

It continues a run of poor performance - at the hands of the team rather than driver.

This Hammer-time Sunday at Silverstone was, therefore, about limiting the damage, the scale of which was understood when Vettel returned to the track after his first pit stop a place ahead of Hamilton on lap 21.

Asked if it was because of the first-lap clash, Hamilton said: "Not at all. No".

Mercedes opted to keep both of its drivers out when the Safety Car was deployed due to Marcus Ericsson's crash at Turn 1. Mercedes did not bring him in for fresh rubber, unlike Vettel and Raikkonen. Just after that re-start Romain Grosjean and Carlos Sainz came together, sending both cars into the wall and brought out another safety auto.

Hamilton had surged back with a display of overtaking pace the watching Lord Coe, would have been proud of in his athletics heyday to take second place behind Sebastian Vettel in the other Ferrari. With five laps remaining, Bottas lost his rear through Brookland's and Vettel was through.

"Every time the auto stops in an uncontrolled way, where a failure happens and the system is then shut down in a manner that is unusual, the vehicle can suffer all manner of unknown gremlins", he said. "I had the advantage on tyres, but it was not so easy to find a way through".

"I just think all these things are unnecessary, because sometimes.it's not that you lose your mind or you do something insane because you intend to, but you try to push the limits and sometimes, you might make a mistake".

Then, with a little more than 10 minutes gone of the second 90-minute session, Verstappen slammed into the barriers on the exit of Luffield.

Hamilton made his way past Bottas on the following lap, with Raikkonen then taking his countryman for third, and that is how the leading four cars would cross the line in a frenetic ending. "Interesting tactics I would say from their [Ferrari] side, but we will do what we can to fight them".

Raikkonen was adjudged to have been at fault with the stewards meting out a 10-second penalty. It was my mistake so that was fine. "I deserved the penalty, but I kept fighting".

"I don´t know what makes him (Hamilton) tick...but it seems a fairly freakish thing for somebody to feel they need to throw themselves under the bus to motivate a driver to go from fourth back into the lead". "It was not a straightforward race".
