Fourth in a row

Lewis Hamilton cruised to a record-equalling fifth British Grand Prix victory on Sunday as he won at Silverstone for the fourth year in a row.

The Briton finished comfortably clear of Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas with Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen third after his teammate and championship leader Sebastian Vettel suffered a dramatic late tyre puncture.

Pressure at the top

Vettel eventually came home in seventh as Hamilton trimmed the German's advantage at the top to just a single point.
