Vettel suspects bumpy ride at Silverstone caused neck issue

Vettel suspects bumpy ride at Silverstone caused neck issue

The reigning world champion missed out on victory at the British Grand Prix as title-rival Sebastian Vettel instead claimed the glory.

The four-time champion seized the lead at the start and fought back after losing the initiative during two safety vehicle periods to register his second win at Silverstone and the 51st of his career.

Hamilton was spun round at the first corner by Vettel's Ferrari team-mate Kimi Raikkonen, but turned in a masterful display, and took advantage of two safety vehicle periods to finish behind Vettel.

Hamilton finally made his stop on Lap 25 and came back out in sixth behind Raikkonen in fifth, with Vettel leading from Bottas and the two Red Bulls.

Trump adviser says two Supreme Court candidates are tougher sell
McConnell is concerned about the volume of the documents Kavanaugh has created in his 12 years on the U.S. Mr Trump had on Friday discussed the nomination with Vice President Mike Pence in Bedminster, New Jersey.


It was Ferrari's first win in Britain since 2011.

'The Safety Car spiced it up, it was a nice battle with Valtteri! Especially here because I mean, here is not easy.

And Raikkonen has now been punished and given 10-second penalty for causing a collision.

"It was my mistake", he said.

On another sweltering afternoon in central England, with a track temperature of 53 degrees Celsius (127 degrees Fahrenheit), the drama began immediately. His team-mate Bottas, on older tyres, led the closing laps, but was unable to resist the challengers.

Hamilton made his way past Bottas on the following lap, with Raikkonen then taking his countryman for third, and that is how the leading four cars would cross the line in a frenetic ending. He was 19th and last, Brendon Hartley having failed to start in his Toro Rosso.

"We got so much support", he went on, adding in a waspish swipe at Ferrari: "Interesting tactics, I would say, from their side, but we'll do what we can to fight them".

Ferrari driver Vettel, who leads by one point going into the 10th of 21 races this season, was 0.187 seconds quicker than Hamilton and 0.357 ahead of Bottas.
