Lewis Hamilton’s seven British Grand Prix wins
The reigning world champion emerged victorious once again at Silverstone on Sunday.
Lewis Hamilton has extended his own record for the number of British Grand Prix wins with a seventh victory at Silverstone.
Here, the PA news agency takes a look at the six-time world champion’s home successes.
1st win – 2008
2nd win – 2014
3rd win – 2015
A thrilling battle ensued to decide the winner of the 70th British Grand Prix, with Hamilton failing to make the most of pole before he fought back to make it successive victories at Silverstone. Felipe Massa and Valtteri Bottas stole a march on the Mercedes driver but Hamilton opted for the undercut in lap 20 and it paid off. With rain set to arrive during the latter stages of the race, the world champion went for intermediate tyres and it ensured he won by over 10 seconds ahead of team-mate Rosberg.
4th win – 2016
5th win – 2017
6th win – 2019
7th win – 2020
Hamilton held on for his record-extending victory despite late drama after suffering a puncture halfway round the final lap. What looked like being a routine win, with Hamilton dominating after starting on pole, was suddenly thrown into the balance when the Mercedes driver’s front-left tyre burst heading down the back straight. Fortunately for him he had a big enough lead to take the chequered flag ahead of Red Bull’s Max Verstappen.
