Hamilton stages dramatic comeback but Vettel wins

Lewis Hamilton has been accused of "crying like a girl" and urged to take up ballet by Kimi Raikkonen's wife following his collision with the Ferrari driver at the British Grand Prix.

The win was Vettel's fourth of the season, 51st of his career, and once-dominant champions Mercedes' first defeat at Silverstone since 2012 before the V6 turbo era started.

Formula One Managing Director of Motorsports Ross Brawn and Lewis Hamilton have launched the first-ever crowd-sourcing competition in a global sport.

Wolff believes the team will regroup in time for its home race at the German Grand Prix. "I deserved the penalty, but I kept fighting".

Hamilton also acknowledged the fanatical F1 supporters at Silverstone on a scorching hot afternoon. 'If he really said something like that he should be ashamed, ' Ferrari chief Maurizio Arrivabene said. "If BWT decides to walk out of Formula One, I can't be stuck with the BWT chassis name". It was eventful from the start, but in the final laps, we just didn't have the pace of the Ferraris on the fresher tyres.

"I want to remind everyone that in China we had a situation between Vettel and Verstappen and nobody said anything, all fine".

Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel also collided with Mercedes Valtteri Bottas in France last month.

Bottas accepted that he was not expecting Vettel's move on that lap but reckoned the worsening state of his tyres meant losing the lead was ultimately inevitable.

'It's been a good Friday, ' said Vettel. "Every bit of energy I had".

"What we need to discuss among all of us is if certain incidents occur and they have a massive outcome in terms of what's happening maybe around the race win and what the consequences would be, that's a different story".

"We had done practice starts there and at Silverstone they do actually allow you do a start from the grid".

"The rear of the vehicle was moving around a lot, particularly with the left-handers and obviously I had been hit on the right".

Team boss Toto Wolff said the incident was either "deliberate" or "incompetent".

"In the end, he was just 44 thousandths ahead of Sebastian - and Valtteri could have been right in the mix as well, apart from a mistake in the last corners that cost him over two tenths".

Vettel believes Ferrari's victory and improvement at Silverstone, a track where they have been thoroughly dominated by Mercedes in recent years, shows that they have a well-rounded 2018 vehicle.

"There is everything still to play for and we will have to be at our very best as a team if we wish to come out on top".

Hamilton's drive was remarkable; the two safety auto periods helped him, but there aren't many drivers in Silverstone's 70-year history that could have recovered as Lewis did.

Ferrari enjoyed an extremely successful British Grand Prix.

"I was able to get the auto more under control and the pace started to pick up".
