  • Vettel triumphant in the battle of Silverstone

Raikkonen, who completed the podium for Ferrari, was handed a 10-second penalty for the early incident involving Hamilton. Kimi made a mistake.

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

Wolff said Allison had privately questioned whether Raikkonen's mistake was "either deliberate or incompetent".

Cheered on by his loyal home fans, Hamilton clocked a flying lap of 1m 25.892s in Q3 to pip Vettel to first place on the grid.

Raikkonen's team-mate Sebastian Vettel won the race while Hamilton put in an incredible drive to recover to second.

'To be honest before the race I was really very concerned about him.

"I tried everything to not give up the lead, but there was nothing I could do at that point to defend against the others on the fresher tyres".

11 killed, at least 45 missing as torrential rain pounds Japan
Agency official Minako Sakurai told reporters heavy rain was forecast to continue until Sunday in western and eastern Japan. In Seiyo, Ehime Prefecture, five were confirmed dead due to the torrential rain, including people swept away in a vehicle .

MC Martin Brundle suggested Hamilton wanted to give himself a few minutes to calm down before addressing the vast crowd, but the five-times British Grand Prix victor says it was because he had fought so hard to recover from last place he could barely stand.

Hamilton was seething was the race at Silverstone and suggested that Ferrari were implementing some "interesting tactics" during a race. "Not an easy day, but I got something out of it".

Whiting, the FIA's race director, is not involved in the stewards' deliberations over incidents and stressed he could only speculate about possible reasons for any perceived discrepancy between the two Ferrari penalties.

Lewis Hamilton has accepted an apology from Kimi Raikkonen for their British GP crash and acknowledged the first-lap collision "was a racing incident". Had Hamilton nailed his start on Sunday and emerged from the opening corners in first place, there is no reason to believe Vettel would have had the pace or the tyre life to challenge him. "Not a straightforward race", Raikkonen said.

Lewis Hamilton struggled to hide his disappointment on Sunday as he avoided a post-race interview and ignored one of his Ferrari rivals after finishing second to Sebastian Vettel in the British Grand Prix. "I only saw it briefly on the monitor, I don't think there was any intention and I find it a bit unnecessary to even go there".

"This is the greatest race of the year and the greatest crowd, I am sorry I could not bring it home for you today", Hamilton told the crowd.

"I lost almost 3kg [in body fluids] trying to get back to the top for you and my team", he said, addressing his 6.7 million followers on the social media platform. "I deserve it, I took the 10 seconds and got fighting". But it is what it is and we just need to learn, understand and just try to get in control of the tyres in the best possible way.
