The German, who had struggled with a neck strain on Saturday, said: "I was a bit concerned going into the race but I was fine, probably a bit of adrenaline".

Hamilton had referred to "interesting tactics" immediately after the race, in which Raikkonen hit the back of his auto and spun him round on the first lap.

"But I believe it's nothing more than a racing incident".

"He spun and it was my bad, but that is how it goes sometimes", said Raikkonen.

Any race where your team wins will be declared as a great race by a team boss but when the racing is brilliant throughout the field, the action is close, and your driver still reigns supreme, it's that little bit sweeter.

Sebastian Vettel broke British hearts with a memorable victory at Silverstone after dispatching pole-sitter and crowd favourite Lewis Hamilton.

But aided by a brace of Safety Cars and some breathless laps around the 5.8km Silverstone track, he brilliantly climbed to second by the chequered flag to stem the points loss to main rival and eventual victor Sebastian Vettel.

"But definitely not on goal, and well deserved to get a 10-second penalty and two [licence penalty] points". "I'm not comfortable at all", he said.

The "widespread criticism" of Sebastian Vettel's penalty at the French GP may have played a role in British GP stewards imposing a harsher sanction on Kimi Raikkonen's own first-lap error, says the FIA's Charlie Whiting.

"We've won on their home ground", Vettel said over the radio.

Hamilton may have gone back on the comments made in the heat of the moment on Sunday, but there's no doubt that this title fight between himself and Vettel, as well as between Mercedes and Ferrari, is starting to well and truly come to the boil. "Not only for Ferrari but also for Formula One". But with twenty laps to go Bottas led after Vettel pitted for tyres ahead of a safety vehicle period caused by Marcus Ericsson [Sauber] crashing heavily. "I know I'm not flawless".

However, Bottas felt he could have challenged Hamilton for a front row start.

Although not yet announced, it is now common knowledge in the paddock that the four-time world champion has signed up again for 2019 and 2020.

Bottas ended up fourth, ahead of Australia's Daniel Ricciardo (Red Bull) and Germany's Nico Hulkenberg (Renault).

Sauber's Charles Leclerc, reportedly a candidate to replace Raikkonen at Ferrari next season, failed to finish for the first time due to a rear tire issue, and Ericsson's crash completed a race to forget for the team.

"This is the greatest race of the year and the greatest crowd, I am sorry I could not bring it home for you today", Hamilton told the crowd. "I will continue to give it everything and I'm sure that one day it will work out".
