In the post-race interview, Raikkonen immediately recognized and owned up to his opening lap mistake involving Hamilton.

Kimi Raikkonen was third in the second Ferrari and the other Mercedes driver Valtteri Bottas fourth, ahead of Max Verstappen and his Red Bull team-mate Daniel Ricciardo.

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.

Hamilton afforded Raikkonen space at the right-handed third turn during the frenetic Silverstone race, but the Finn locked up, before his left-front tyre thudded into the right-rear of Hamilton's Mercedes.

Hamilton dropped down to last place but executed a superb recovery drive to second, finishing behind race victor and title rival Vettel.

Vettel made a cracking start from second place to beat Hamilton to the first corner. "I guess I wanted to give a boost to England", he said. I could have easily taken second place today, but we chose to go for it.

Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff also wondered whether the incident, that sent Hamilton into a spin before he fought back to second at the finish, had been deliberate or simply a sign of incompetence. Within ten laps he was running in the top-ten, within 15 he was snorting into the top-five.

The fact that Hamilton is only eight points adrift after 10 races is remarkable, considering that Mercedes have only won three times so far in 2018.

The German finished 2.264 seconds ahead of Hamilton for his fourth win of the season, denying Hamilton what would have been a fifth straight win in his home race.

Whilst it looked like Bottas would remain behind Vettel for the duration of the race, a surprise safety auto threw teams a strategy curveball.

Hamilton in a Mercedes and Ferrari's Vettel traded fastest laps until Hamilton clocked 1min 25.892sec in his final lap to outpace Vettel by 0.044sec. "They have really caught up", the F1 legend Lauda said after Hamilton qualified on Pole. "I gave everything I could, I was struggling to stand".

"Historically it has not been a very strong track for us, but today has been a good start, and hopefully we can improve tomorrow and kill their magic".

"It's easy to say after the last couple of races that we're suddenly doing something against them, but we've been hit pretty many times also, so that's how it goes, unfortunately".

"If our two drivers make a mistake twice and take the same team out, I would be apologizing".
