Ferrari says British Grand Prix was 'good for Formula 1'

Lewis Hamilton

Hamilton hit out at Ferrari's dirty track tactics after he charged back to second place but did not shake hands with Raikkonen following the race at Silverstone on Sunday.

"Kimi said sorry and I accept it and we move on", he wrote on Instagram.

Hamilton rejoined in 18th and recovered to second, while Raikkonen ultimately finished third.

With the victory, Vettel extended his lead in the drivers championship, now eight points ahead on 171 points.

"I'm happy first of all for the team", the Italian told Channel 4.

"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". "I was a bit excited when they gave the penalty to Kimi but I have to say that for Formula 1 this is good because on a spectacular track like Silverstone, having a battle like this I think is good for Formula One".

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.

Valtteri Bottas says Sebastian Vettel's overtake on him for the lead of the British Grand Prix was just a matter of time due to how quickly his tyres were going off.

Hamilton was visibly angry with Raikkonen after the race and refused to dismiss the suggestion that his actions could have been deliberate.

Four pole positions and four wins make for a great improvement on what was a good 2017, at this point a year ago, he had won three races and taken just the one pole position. "I will not give up".

Mercedes non-executive chairman Niki Lauda added: "The race was incredible". It should not have been, but for me, Lewis's job, being last, coming all the way to second, shows what performance he had here.

"Qualifying wasn't very enjoyable, I did as little runs as possible and I had the padding just to support in the corners where I was resting my head". Raikkonen claiming third with three laps to go.

"It was my mistake".

"I saw sort of sniffed my chance already and the first laps after the restart out of Turn 4 and then on the Wellington Straight down to Turn 6". "They are what they are and there's a certain arsenal of penalties the stewards have available - a five-second penalty, a 10-second penalty or a drive-through and then they look at the precedents".

A late collision between Red Bull pair Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen left the Dutchman limping toward the finish but the former was able to hold on to fifth.
