Carlos Sainz wins first ever race at British Grand Prix as Lewis Hamilton comes heroic third after early horror crash

It was fitting that Tom Cruise was here for this thrilling British GP. At the heart of it, an epic performance from Lewis Hamilton, who came home in third place. It was testament to the halo on Zhou’s car that saved him from serious injury. Meanwhile, Hamilton started catching the Ferrari duo of Charles Leclerc and Sainz, who were having their own squabble up front. Leclerc was quicker – despite his damaged car – than Sainz, who was leading. Eventually Sainz was told “not good enough, we are swapping the cars”. But behind him there was drama as Hamilton battled Perez and Leclerc while Fernando Alonso also got into the mix. Sainz crossed the line first ahead of Perez and Hamilton to take victory No.1 at the 150th attempt.
