British Grand Prix: Vettel stretches lead over hapless Hamilton

Callum Ilott

While Raikkonen was handed a 10-second time penalty for the incident, Hamilton immediately set about climbing back through the field as the contact had left him with minimal - if any - damage.

Raikkonen apologised for his first-lap brush with Hamilton.

Lewis Hamilton prevailed in a tight battle with Formula One leader Sebastian Vettel to snatch pole position for the British Grand Prix on Saturday. The appearance of the safety vehicle on the 33rd of 52 laps, after Sauber's Marcus Ericsson crashed at Abbey, was greeted with a huge cheer from the 140,500 crowd who had already cheered Hamilton's every overtake.

Hamilton was on a charge from the first lap, back up to seventh after nine laps but still 26 seconds behind his fellow four-times world champion.

"Dead last to P2, that's an awesome effort", Mercedes told Hamilton.

When the race resumed there were 14 laps remaining and Bottas had to go into full defensive mode against Vettel, who had shown excellent pace in the opening stint on soft tires but struggled more on the mediums.

"Obviously it's a racing incident and I can't see behind me". "I will not give up, believe me, I will not give up".

"The situation is hard to judge", said Vettel , "because we haven't seen much today and mostly collected data, and also because time is limited between the two sessions".

"The rear of the auto was moving around a lot, particularly with the left-handers and obviously I had been hit on the right", he said. "I deserved the penalty, but I kept fighting".

In both cases, the penalty did not seem sufficient to satisfy Mercedes, or their drivers, after their races were wrecked by rivals' mistakes.

Kimi Raikkonen of Ferrari finished third, followed by Mercedes' Valtteri Bottas, while Austrian GP victor Max Verstappen was fifth and his Red Bull teammate Daniel Ricciardo sixth. Daniel Ricciardo came home fifth for Red Bull ahead of Nico Hulkenberg of Renault, Esteban Ocon of Force India, Fernando Alonso of McLaren and Kevin Magnussen of Haas. An early pit stop on the cards? Dutch 20-year-old Max Verstappen, victor in Austria last weekend, retired with a brake problem while running in fifth place.
