F1 2017: Home hero Hamilton claims British GP win

5 things we learned from the British Grand Prix

The 32-year-old becomes the first driver to win four consecutive British Grand Prix's since fellow Brit Clark achieved the feat between 1962 and 1965. "Thank you guys so much", continued Hamilton, who needs the victory on Sunday to try and make inroads into Sebastian Vettel's 20 point lead in the Drivers' Championship. Indeed it did look like Bottas would finish third, until there was drama for Kimi Raikkonen during the final stints of the race. Valtteri Bottas was fourth, with a five place gearbox penalty to take.

Vettel's misfortune could prove a key moment in the title race, with Hamilton after his fourth win of the season, clearly delighted by the outcome.

The Briton also set the fastest lap and stepped out of his vehicle only one point behind Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel at the halfway stage in the season.

Lewis Hamilton made several milestones during the British Grand Prix. Oddly enough, Vettel's Ferrari teammate Kimi Raikkonen was in P2 when one of his tires ruptured in the second-to-last lap as well, ceding his position to Valtteri Bottas and settling for P3. "I think it's about looking forward and what happens in 2019 and 2020, the risk and opportunities", added the Austrian. "The brakes got fire on the grid and I think this is the reason why I had no grip at the start: they were too hot".

"I believe that we had a good auto, especially in the corners".

TV presenter Paul O'Grady has praised his friend Camilla for embracing her position as a member of the royal family late in life. The milestone for the Duchess of Cornwall was marked Monday with the release of an official portrait of Charles and Camilla.

"Great job guys! All weekend!" said Hamilton. Meanwhile, Ricciardo in the other Red Bull was making great progress at the back of the field.

"I hope you liked the lap", Hamilton told the grandstands full of cheering fans. Renault's Nico Hulkenberg put on a good show at Silverstone on Saturday and managed to finish sixth, ahead of Force India's Sergio Perez and Esteban Esteban Ocon.

Both Fernando Alonso and Ricciardo made quick progress in the opening laps, climbing several positions before Ricciardo ran wide at Woodcote and dropped back down to last place.

"That functions really well and if it was down to me alone I would like to continue with this for many more years". Verstappen and Vettel were yet again seen locking horns as the pair went side-by-side on a number of occasions but Vettel's late tyre issue worked to the advantage of the Red Bull driver. The team did a ideal strategy and I just kept my head down.
