TON OF TROUBLE Watch moment Lewis Hamilton’s tyre bursts from inside his Mercedes as sparks fly from car in thrilling end to British GP

LEWIS HAMILTON kept his cool in remarkable fashion as he drove to victory in the British Grand Prix on three wheels. Footage from on-board the world championship leader’s car shows the moment his front-left tyre burst on the final lap. Hamilton’s car is, at first, a picture of tranquility around the empty Silverstone while others fell away in the demanding race. Engineer Pete ‘Bono’ Bonnington tells Hamilton: “Please don’t go for the fastest lap, we just need to get the car home. Such is Hamilton’s confidence in piloting the F1 three-wheeler, he decides against Bono’s calls to stop the car on track and gently rides back to the pits.
