Hamilton wins British Grand Prix

Lewis Hamilton won the British Grand Prix on Sunday, and is now four points of Nico Rosberg in the 2014 Formula One title race.

According to the BBC, the race was delayed for nearly an hour, as barriers had 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.

Hamilton started sixth after making a mistake in aborting his final qualifying lap, with his team-mate on pole. He was up to fourth after the first four corners when the race was red-flagged following a heavy crash involving Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen.

The Finn ran off the track through Turn Four and spun as he rejoined. Williams driver Felipe Massa clipped the Ferrari as it spun across the track, and Raikkonen speared into the barriers.

The race was stopped to repair the barriers damaged by the heavy impact from the Ferrari, and Raikkonen was taken to the medical centre, where he was diagnosed with bruising to his ankles.

The race re-started behind the safety car after an hour's delay and Rosberg built up a five-second lead in the two laps it took Hamilton to pass Jenson Button's McLaren. (ANI)
