Hamilton wins fifth British GP at Silverstone, Vettel finishes seventh

Three-time world champion and Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton produced a rich vein of form as he won the British Grand Prix for a record-equaling fifth time at the Silverstone Circuit on Sunday.

Hamilton led from pole position to win his home grand prix. Mercedes team mate Valtteri Bottas finished in second place.

Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen finished at the third spot despite suffering tyre issues, followed by Red Bull's Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo.

Hamilton's victory has cut his deficit to Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel to just one point in the championship as the German suffered a front-left tyre failure, who finished at the seventh spot.

With the win, Hamilton equals Jim Clark and Alain Prost record with five British GP career wins.

This was also his fourth consecutive British GP win at Silverstone.
