BBC – Lewis Hamilton won the British Grand Prix to close to within four points of Nico Rosberg in the title race.

Hamilton’s team-mate was leading, but being chased down by the Briton, before he retired with gearbox failure.

The race was delayed for nearly an hour for barriers to be repaired following Kimi Raikkonen’s high speed crash.

Up to 120,000 fans saw Hamilton win at Silverstone for the first time since 2008 – a year in which he went on to win the drivers’ title.

Williams’ Valtteri Bottas was second from Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo.

The Australian held off a charge from McLaren’s Jenson Button in the closing laps as Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel won a thrilling battle with Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso for fifth.
