Lewis Hamilton accused of 'crying like a girl' following collision at Silverstone

Vettel triumphant in the battle of Silverstone

Hamilton was seething was the race at Silverstone and suggested that Ferrari were implementing some "interesting tactics" during a race.

Mercedes technical director James Allison said: "Yesterday's free practice running proved an extremely accurate portent of what we saw today".

"Incompetent, who Kimi? Who is he to judge what a driver is doing in the vehicle, I can accept it from Jacques (Villeneuve) because he's been a driver, but that person? No".

Hamilton explained his decision to go straight to the podium cool-down room after the race, rather than stay in parc ferme for the top-three interviews, was because "I didn't have much to give at that time and needed to take a deep breath".

No wonder, then, that Vettel was so elated on Sunday afternoon at a circuit that had seen Hamilton win for the previous four years and Mercedes for the last five. Believe me, I will not give up.

"It looked very tight at the front on Friday and so it proved in qualifying: it needed a very good lap from Lewis to put the auto on pole and, save for an error in the final corners, Valtteri would have been just behind". "Le Castellet (French GP) was the first time we got taken out and this is the second".

With this win, Vettel increased his tally to 171 points in the overall drivers' classification, eight points ahead of reigning champion Hamilton.

"It's been a lovely battle, a battle that I think the audience appreciated, there will be other battles where most likely Mercedes will win and this is a lesson for us to stay classy, a thing that they haven't done today".

His team-mate Valtteri Bottas, on older tyres, led entering the closing laps, but was unable to resist Vettel or his Ferrari teammate Kimi Raikkonen, who finished third.

And if you are among those who saw Ant-Man And The Wasp this weekend and loved it, we have a recommendation for you. This marks the tenth time this year a film based on a Marvel comic character has topped the weekend box office .

However, Hamilton subsequently said he was "dumb" to imply Raikkonen might have deliberately collided with him.

"Matteo Bonciani of the FIA said "be careful with him, he's really not happy at all at the moment".

And I think Lewis has his engineers to thank for the second place finish.

Lewis Hamilton has since posted on social media that he has accepted Kimi Raikkonen's apology and is ready to move on.

'It has to be the best track in the world, ' said Hamilton. Hamilton, forced in to a spin, continued last on track, while Raikkonen was later deemed responsible by the stewards and given a ten-second penalty.

It is understood that Hamilton, 33, would be interested in ending his career with the Scuderia, and it is not beyond the realms that he might swap seats with his rival, whom he trails by one point ahead of his home race, for one final hurrah.

Wolff was none too pleased with the current gap between Mercedes and Ferrari in the Constructors' rankings.

"That's what's wrong; it's racing - I don't like it when there are racing penalties, it should be for dirty driving, which is a different thing, or stupid driving".
