LOCAL HERO 2016.10 Lewis Hamilton enjoyed a perfect weekend at his favourite hunting ground - Silverstone - powering to his fourth British Grand Prix victory, the third in a row, in front of adoring fans who gave him the rock star treatment as he crowd surfed atop the celebrating masses. It was his day and together with his fans they passionately milked the occasion. The real raec drama was behind the world champion as Nico Rosberg and the precocious Max Verstappen slugged it out for most of the afternoon. Although Rosberg crossed the line in second, he was later penalised and thus the runner-up spot was gifted to Verstappen, who fans chose as their Driver of the Day for his efforts. As a result the championship is now down to a single point as the Silver Arrows square up for the second half of the season, the stage set for an epic contest between the two. Alas for Ferrari it was a weekend to forget as both their drivers struggled with a car which appears well out of sorts on fast circuits, but also appear to be lagging in the development race. Red Bull were second in the pecking order all weekend, ahead of Ferrari. This is our eye-candy packed tribute to the 2016 British Grand Prix.
