British GP madness

Sebastian Vettel wins British Grand Prix after Lewis Hamilton’s early stutter.Sebastian Vettel  narrow one-point advantage in the championship was threatening to turn into a chasm.Once Hamilton was clouted into a spin by Kimi Raikkonen’s Ferrari at the third corner, following a bad start by the Mercedes driver, the afternoon was looking bleak.

Mercedes came in for a lot of perfectly legitimate criticism after a botched strategy call in Austria a week ago, and there were questions again at Silverstone on Sunday.

Ferrari have made a step forward on the engine – and Mercedes believe it is now more powerful than theirs. If that’s true, and there is no reason to think it’s not, that makes it the first time since the start of the hybrid era in F1 in 2014 that Mercedes do not have an engine advantage.
