Ten of the best pictures which tell the story of the 2018 British Grand Prix weekend.
Kimi Raikkonen and Charles Leclerc
Is Ferrari poised to make one of the most sensational driver signings in its recent history? The rumours Charles Leclerc will replace Kimi Raikkonen refuse to go away.
F1 came home to Silverstone, home of the first world championship race. McLaren’s weekend began under a cloud following the resignation of racing director Eric Boullier, but ended on a brighter note as Fernando Alonso grabbed more points for the team.
Unusually warm conditions pushed track temperatures beyond 50C and fried the grass around the Silverstone circuit.
A huge crash for Brendon Hartley in final practice ruled him out of qualifying
Pole position number 76 was a special one for Lewis Hamilton: His last-gasp effort beat both Ferraris by a few hundredths at home.
However within seconds of the start Sebastian Vettel burst ahead to take the lead.
Hamilton’s victory hopes were wrecked at Village, where Kimi Raikkonen tipped him into a spin.
A tyre strategy gamble put Valtteri Bottas into the lead later in the race, but he couldn’t hold on under pressure from Vettel.
Vettel, who previously won the British Grand Prix in 2009, scoured the BRDC trophy for his name but found it only went as far as 2005.
Over 130,000 fans turned up on Sunday and were rewarded with a terrific race, if not the home victory they’ve become used to seeing.
