British Grand Prix: Unhappy Lewis Hamilton points fin.. 'interesting tactics' after finishing second in race
Hamilton was 29 seconds behind leader Vettel and 11 behind Raikkonen, but he was turning in the quickest laps of the race, and when Daniel Ricciardo stopped for a second time, he was up to fifth. So I was nervous I had lost part of my floor or something because the auto was moving for unknown reasons, but then it started to get better and better, after some tweaks to the settings.
With the victory, Vettel extended his lead in the drivers championship, now eight points ahead on 171 points.
At the French Grand Prix, Vettel ran into Hamilton's teammate Valtteri Bottas at the start of the race, an incident which forced him to retire.
Hamilton explained his decision to go straight to the podium cool-down room after the race, rather than stay in parc ferme for the top-three interviews, was because "I didn't have much to give at that time and needed to take a deep breath".
"It was a hard race, but I gave it everything and I'm grateful to make it back up to second".
When all is said and done, Vettel may look back at his British Grand Prix win as the turning point in the championship.
Hamilton hinted at "interesting tactics" from Ferrari post-race but took to Instagram on Monday to say: "Kimi said sorry and I accept it and we move on".
In a race with two safety-car periods, reigning champion Hamilton went from pole position to the rear of the field before finishing second for Mercedes in a superb fightback. "Every bit of energy I had". Obviously it's a racing incident and I can't see behind me. Had Hamilton nailed his start on Sunday and emerged from the opening corners in first place, there is no reason to believe Vettel would have had the pace or the tyre life to challenge him.
"It was a super start, a super race and, yeah, a hammer finish", Vettel said.
The Finn added: "The Ferraris looked strong yesterday and it was very close today between us and them, so I expect a similarly close fight tomorrow". "I think it's working well on these kind of tracks but to be honest everywhere it works quite good".
"I said you need to question whether it was incompetence or deliberate - a stupid comment of mine in the emotion", he said. "Everybody brings updates to every race and there is never a silver bullet that provides you three tenths or four tenths, which was the difference between us and Ferrari past year".
Hamilton has now lost points in six of the 10 races so far this season either through his own mistake as at Silverstone or technical problems and botched strategy calls by Merc. Fans took to social media to slam the Briton's words and felt that he was exaggerating, while completing disregarding the fact that Raikkonen did get a penalty for the incident.
