The heart and soul of the British Grand Prix was Lewis Hamilton. The 2008 champion driver for the Mercedes AMG team showed true grit, as he raced 57 laps to take the win at the, Formula One British Grand Prix.
Hamilton, who was 6th place on the starting grid quickly moved into 4th when, Ferrari driver Kimi Raikkonen hit a wall at 150mph causing a delay in the race. Raikkonen was okay, but exited the car with some assistance and a limp.
Once the race continued Hamilton set the fastest laps on the track moving into second place but still 5 seconds behind teammate, Nico Rosberg. Hamilton closed the 5-second gap and was on the tail of Rosberg whose radio transmission to the garage revealed a gearbox problem, just as Hamilton was taking the lead.
Lewis Hamilton showed true grit, tenacity, and the skill of a champion when he took the lead and kept it, then comfortably cruised across the finish line to win his home race, at the Formula One Grand Prix in Britain.
Williams-Martini driver Valtteri Bottas was a very impressive second, and Red Bull driver Daniel Ricciardo came in third. Lewis Hamilton may have missed getting pole position, but he did not miss winning the Formula One British Grand Prix.
