Stormzy thrilled to wave chequered flag as Lewis Hamilton wins record 6th British Grand Prix!

 

UK grime star Stormzy was given the honour of waving the chequered flag on Sunday as Lewis Hamilton crossed the finish line to win a record sixth British Grand Prix at Silverstone. The championship pace-setter got the better of teammate Valtteri Bottas, who started on pole, to take the lead, and has now surpassed both Jim Clark and Alain Prost. Following his victory, Gary Lineker shared praise for the 34-year-old on Twitter, writing: ‘The great @LewisHamilton wins another British Grand Prix. ‘What a day this could be for English sports stars.’

Lewis Hamilton took a record sixth British Grand Prix victory in a thrilling race featuring a crash between Max Verstappen and Sebastian Vettel.

Battles throughout the field created a dramatic race – by far the best of the year so far – as Hamilton benefited from a safety-car period to take a lead he never lost after Valtteri Bottas had held back an early attack from his Mercedes team-mate.

Behind them, Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc and Red Bull’s Verstappen staged a duel for the ages in disputing third place for the first third of the race.

Pointless host Richard Osman also joked: ‘Loving this day of sport. So excited that Lewis Hamilton is leading New Zealand by 2 sets to 1.’ Also on 14 July England were fighting to take home the Cricket World Cup while Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic competed in the Wimbledon’s Men Final. Elsewhere at the F1, it looked like all was forgiven between Mel B and Geri Horner as the Spice Girls pals looked the best of friends at Silverstone this weekend. Things got a bit awks between the bandmates recently after Mel B claimed that she and Geri had hooked up back in the day – something that didn’t go down well with Ginger Spice. Any rifts have definitely healed since then, as Mel was seen arm in arm with Geri as they walked along with Geri’s husband Christian, and Scary Spice even got behind the wheel for a 180mph Hot Lap too.
