Hamilton wins British GP but accused of ‘dirty driving’ after Verstappen shunt

Verstappen was sent spinning into the barriers at high speed ending his race, while Hamilton went on to drive an immense comeback after a penalty to win. Hamilton and Verstappen were vying with one another wheel to wheel in the opening lap and across nine corners there was nothing between them. Leclerc followed him in two laps later and resumed having maintained his lead. With the stops shaken out Hamilton was in fourth, 12 seconds off Leclerc with 23 laps remaining and behind Bottas and Norris. He went up the inside of Norris – as if to make a point, once more at Copse – for third on lap 31 and set off after his teammate. Bottas was unsurprisingly ordered to move over for Hamilton on lap 40 but Leclerc was maintaining a very solid pace out front, with Hamilton now in second he had a nine-second lead.
