Speed: Home sweet home for Hamilton at British Grand Prix
Text size Aa Aa

Suspense has returned to the title race in the Formula 1 World Championship.

Six years ago to the day, Lewis Hamilton celebrated his first career victory at Silverstone. This Sunday, the English driver was once again on top of the podium in front of his home fans at the British Grand Prix.

The race was interrupted for more than one hour after a spectacular crash by Kimi Raikonnen on the first lap.

After returning to the track, Nico Rosberg soon showed he was the man to beat, but he was eventually betrayed by his gear box and had to abandon whilst out in front.

Hamilton took full advantage and won his fifth Grand Prix of the season. He is now only four points behind his team-mate Rosberg in the driver standings.

With eight victories and six doubles in nine races, Mercedes have no rivals in the constructors standings. They are 158 points clear of Red Bull.
