Lewis Hamilton has won the 2014 British Grand Prix, much to the delight of the home crowd.

With Hamilton’s team mate Nico Rosberg retiring from the race, the championship is now down to just 4 points as Formula One heads into round 10 in Germany.

Hamilton went from sixth to fourth at the start before the race was red flagged after Kimi Raikkonen went off track and suffered a massive 47G  impact into the barriers.  Raikkonen was taken to the medical centre and is reported to be suffering a bruised ankle.

Felipe Massa was sadly caught up in the Raikkonen incident and was forced to retire from his 200th Grand Prix.  Max Chilton was also caught in the incident and was lucky to escape injury. (more…)

It wasn’t total disappointment for the British crowd as Jenson Button qualified in third, much to the delight of the McLaren team who have struggled so far this season. (more…)
