Was class personified all weekend, and we mean all weekend. The British Grand Prix wasn’t just about the result, it was Hamilton’s behaviour off track that really stood him out. Shirking interviews to climb fences and engage with fans, and then clambering from his car and running toward the grandstands before the podium was joyous to watch. Hamilton loved the support, and the fans loved his efforts.
