Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel extended his lead in the 2018 Formula 1 World Championship by earning a hard-fought win on Sunday in the British Grand Prix.
Mercedes-AMG's Lewis Hamilton claimed second spot approximately 2.2 seconds behind Vettel, while Ferrari's other man Kimi Räikkönen claimed third spot some 3.6 seconds after the winner.
Things started off with Hamilton on pole and looking on track for a sixth-straight win at the Silverstone Circuit. However, it was not to be thanks to some bad luck.
After suffering wheelspin at the start, Hamilton was passed by both Vettel and teammate Valtteri Bottas. Räikkönen also tried to get the jump on Hamilton but his wheels locked up and he ended up driving into the rear of the reigning champ's car.
This caused Hamilton to enter a spin but the local hero was able to rejoin the race, albeit at 18th spot. This was the setting for an epic charge up the order. Hamilton was already approaching fifth spot after just 10 laps, but was still some 30 seconds behind the leader Vettel.
