Lewis celebrates thrilling Silverstone win

F1 – Lewis Hamilton’s dedicated his third British Grand Prix win to the fans at Silverstone.

He came through a spell of rain at the Northamptonshire circuit, and a challenge from the Williams pair of Felipe Massa and Valtteri Bottas, to finish ahead of his Brackley-based Mercedes team-mate Nico Rosberg.

The victory took Hamilton 17 points clear of Rosberg in the drivers’ championship.

It wasn’t such a good day for fellow British driver Jenson Button, whose miserable season with McLaren continued as he crashed out on the opening lap.

The weekend saw record-breaking crowds with around 350,000 people going through the gates.
