After a horror crash, Tom Cruise welcomes Lewis Hamilton to his victory in the British Grand Prix
Ferrari was the most benefited from Red Bull-Mercedes’ tangle. Charles was in the lead before the red flag went up and Lewis was not able to get back to him until lap 50, when everything went wrong.
Sebastian Vettel, in an Aston Martin, raced at the British GP in the first time since 1961. He fought with Fernando Alonso during the start, but was then forced to retire at Woodcote. He dropped from the top six to the back and retired later.
This was not about Lewis. Valtteri bottas, Lewis’ teammate, helped him when they were controversially swapped on Lap 50.
Toto Wolff, Mercedes boss, said to his star driver: “This is still going.”
Lewis responded, “Damn right Toto.”
