Kimi's wife suggests Lewis takes up ballet after Silverstone jibe

Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel has landed a blow in the Formula One world championship by winning rival Lewis Hamilton's home British Grand Prix in a dramatic Silverstone race. I, at least, would struggle to be that precise and take somebody out.

Raikkonen continued behind both Red Bulls but was handed a 10-second penalty, which would negate his on-track pass of Daniel Ricciardo into Copse, while Hamilton resumed in 17th. "The race was fantastic", Vettel said after claiming his fourth win of the season.

Championship leader Sebastian Vettel caught Valterri Bottas on Turn 1 in France and relationships between the drivers and constructors is particularly strained following events at Silverstone.

The controversy centred on an incident in the opening lap when Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen collided with Hamilton's Mercedes at Turn Three.

Raikkonen offered an apology post-race while Hamilton made an insinuating comment regarding Ferrari's tactics, which both Vettel and Raikkonen brushed off.

He had brought it down to 2.4s when Marcus Ericsson lost the rear of his vehicle when he turned into the first corner with DRS still open and flew across the gravel and nose-first into the tyres. "He spun, my bad", said the 2007 world champion.

Raikkonen was alongside on the inside heading into Turn 3 but Hamilton braked later, leaving space for the Ferrari at the apex.

That released Vettel into a lead he would hold comfortably to the end, while Hamilton forced his way inside Bottas at Brooklands a lap later. "Last time we said it was going to be a boring race, and it was a very entertaining race, so let's see".

However, questions will again be asked about Mercedes' tactics after deciding not to pit to replace the tires.

Vettel's best chance came on Lap 47 when he was able to gain six-tenths through the first sector before popping DRS open on the Wellington Straight.

"But the auto is strong...it's going to be a struggle with the guys ahead". Pierre Gasly was 10th for Toro Rosso. The New Zealander crashed spectacularly in Saturday's final practice.

The Silverstone circuit was celebrating 70 years since the Royal Automobile Club held a Grand Prix on the former wartime airfield in 1948, when Luigi Villoresi led an Italian 1-2 for Maserati. Everybody brings updates to every race and there is never a silver bullet that provides you three tenths or four tenths, which was the difference between us and Ferrari previous year. "I gave him enough space but that was not enough: we still made contact and I lost the place".

"I think my car's broken", said the defending champion as he reconciled himself to a charge through a field shaken by the opening lap incidents.
