Lewis Hamilton wins dramatic British Grand Prix

LONDON: Lewis Hamilton won an incident-packed British Grand Prix to claim back-to-back victories on home soil.


The world champion finished ahead of Nico Rosberg at a rain-hit Silverstone on Sunday to extend his lead over his Mercedes team-mate to 17 points in the championship.

But the race was far from straightforward for the 30-year-old home favourite who had to overcome a poor start, and two rain showers, to seal his fifth victory from nine races this season.

Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel claimed the final spot on the podium ahead of Felipe Massa, who led the opening phase of the race, and his Williams team-mate Valtteri Bottas.
