Lewis Hamilton wins British GP and closes gap to Sebastian Vettel
Great win by Lewis Hamilton at this home race. The British driver is now a shy one point from Ferrari Sebastian Vettel. The German had a tire puncture at the last lap of the race! but still was able to finish the race in 7th place - which could prove critical for the 2017 Formula One Championship - as the race between Mercedes and Ferrari intensifies.
