Raikkonen's wife slams Hamilton over crash

Prior to Sunday's race Silverstone had become something of a fortress for Mercedes, with a run of five consecutive victories dating back to Nico Rosberg's surprise victory in 2013.

Raikkonen got a 10-second penalty for bumping into Hamilton on the first lap after Vettel had overtaken the Briton, who started in pole position.

"We know it was just a stupid mistake on Kimi's part".

Such emotion is what makes a sport otherwise dominated by data and technical details so fascinating to watch, but when the adrenaline subsides in Brackley the blame will no doubt focus on the true cause of Hamilton's missed opportunity: his poor getaway at the start. It is also not in Raikkonen's nature to go along with such a plan and there are 11 rounds still remaining with Vettel leading the championship. "But that's how it goes sometimes". "So that's fine. I deserve it, I took the 10 seconds and kept fighting".

Lewis said: "That lap took everything out of me, it was the toughest lap I've ever had to do in a qualifying session".

Southgate invokes spirit of '66 as Lions feel history at their shoulder
A few days later, as England beat Sweden to make the semis, some rudimentary Photoshop skills in our Roundel Ramblings group , echoed the same sweet sentiment.

In the closing laps his superior speed over his team-mate, struggling with grip, put him into second - although not without a fight - and gave him an outside chance of victory. But with twenty laps to go Bottas led after Vettel pitted for tyres ahead of a safety auto period caused by Marcus Ericsson [Sauber] crashing heavily.

Hartley took his place on the start line for the main race - won by Germany's Sebastian Vettel - but was unable to complete the first lap when his rebuilt Toro Rosso auto limped into the pits.

Christian Horner says there is no way Kimi Raikkonen deliberately hit Lewis Hamilton at Silverstone as he is not "that kind of driver".

He was soon up to 16th and by lap nine he was eighth, but some distance from Vettel, who led Bottas by six seconds on lap 12. "It's tiresome to be taken out on the first lap". Bottas hadn't defend strongly, and thereafter he sunk down the order, his 31-lap-old tyres flagging.

Hamilton recovered from last, following a collision with Kimi Raikkonen, to finish second in a dramatic race.

" Noel Cintron worked for him days, nights and weekends, but year after year Trump refused to pay him the wages he had earned". Cintron, a registered Republican, worked as Trump's personal driver for more than 25 years, according to Bloomberg .

Vettel had already assumed the lead of the race, after jumping Hamilton at the start, and went on to build a commanding gap over Bottas in the first stint.

"The others pitted under the Safety Car, but we took the risk and stayed out to get ahead of Sebastian". "Valtteri was pushing like insane".

"I said you need to question whether it was incompetence or deliberate - a stupid comment of mine in the emotion", he said.

"The race was fantastic".

"It's a lot of points that ultimately Valtteri and I have lost in those two scenarios. What an wonderful day".
