Hamil­ton wins GP

The Southland Times - - SPORT -

Lewis Hamil­ton has won his home Bri­tish Grand Prix for the fourth year in a row, while a penul­ti­mate-lap punc­ture has slashed Se­bas­tian Vet­tel’s For­mula One cham­pi­onship lead to a sin­gle point. The Bri­ton’s drive from pole to flag yes­ter­day was lonely, un­event­ful and dom­i­nant – in com­plete con­trast to his Fer­rari ri­val’s af­ter­noon – with Mercedes team-mate Valt­teri Bot­tas fin­ish­ing 14sec be­hind to se­cure the one-two. Vet­tel looked like se­cur­ing the fi­nal podium po­si­tion un­til the blowout, fin­ished sev­enth af­ter an emer­gency pit stop with a shower of sparks from the wheel rim.
