Unhappy Hamilton points finger at Ferrari's 'interesting tactics'

Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel landed a blow in the Formula One world championship by winning rival Lewis Hamilton's home British Grand Prix in a dramatic Silverstone race on Sunday.

Bottas did well to hold off Daniel Ricciardo for fourth as the Finn's tires dropped off dramatically, while Verstappen retired in the closing stages with gearbox issues.

Thanks to a lot of massages and physiotherapy treatments, Vettel made it out for qualifying but Arrivabene said that Vettel was still suffering with pain on Sunday morning in the build up to the Grand Prix itself.

Hamilton, who took time out before addressing the crowd and looked drained by his exertions, later said he had no concerns and no problem with Raikkonen.

Vettel finished 2.264 seconds ahead of Hamilton.

Vettel in contrast was rewarded for a brilliant start in which he overtook Hamilton within metres on the opening straight.

Having grabbed the lead at the start of race, two late Safety Car periods had left Vettel behind the Mercedes driver but with a tyre advantage.

Ferrari, winners with championship leader Sebastian Vettel, dismissed the suggestion and others also jumped to their defence. Obviously I struggled a little bit more towards the end with the tyres, but I wanted to get by as soon as possible. "I took the 10 seconds and kept fighting, that's how it goes".

After the trophy presentation, Sky Sports pundit Martin Brundle finally caught up with Hamilton, who took a swipe at Raikkonen's driving.

Lewis Hamilton is second, Kimi Raikkonen finishes third.

While Vettel led from Bottas at the front all eyes were on Hamilton and his comeback drive through the field.

As they headed into the final five laps, the top four cars were separated by only 1.6 seconds with the two Red Bulls in pursuit until, on lap 47, Verstappen spun at Club and Vettel squeezed past Bottas, at Brooklands, to seize the initiative.

"This is the greatest race of the year and this is the greatest crowd and I'm sorry I couldn't bring it home for you today", Hamilton told his disappointed fans.

"All I'd say is that it's now two races that the Ferraris have taken out one of the Mercedes, and a five-second penalty and a 10-second penalty doesn't appear to feel...", he hesitated. It was still good enough to have a shot, so I gave it everything.
