Nico Rosberg: Kimi-Lewis crash was '100 percent' not on objective

Lewis Hamilton celebrates pole position in qualifying for the 2018 British Grand Prix at Silverstone.

While Hamilton was left exhausted post-race, his title rival and British GP victor Sebastian Vettel appeared to have a bigger physical scare on Saturday.

"Interesting tactics I would say from their side, but we'll do what we can to fight them".

Claiming he had lost "nearly 3kg" in his recovery drive, Hamilton said he "barely had any energy at the end to stand, let alone talk".

Raikkonen, for his part, was apologetic for causing the accident. "He spun, my bad", said the 2007 world champion.

"That's how it goes sometimes". It was my mistake so that was fine. "I took the 10 seconds and kept fighting". "That's how it goes".

Hamilton afforded Raikkonen space at the right-handed third turn during the frenetic Silverstone race, but the Finn locked up, before his left-front tyre thudded into the right-rear of Hamilton's Mercedes.

It looked like the German would enjoy a facile afternoon, but two safety cars saw him slip to second briefly before he overtook Valtteri Bottas to clinch victory late on.

LEWIS Hamilton said Ferrari used "tactics" after he was hit by Kimi Raikkonen at the British GP, while Mercedes boss Toto Wolff said the collision was either "deliberate or incompetent".

China’s Xiaomi makes underwhelming public debut in Hong Kong IPO
The IPO opened at a price of HK $16.60 (about $2.12 USD) per share which is a fair amount below the original IPO value of HK $17. During the day prices slipped to as low as HK$16 ($2.04) but managed to climb to HK$16.80 ($2.14) by closing time.


'It's Coming Home!' England fans get World Cup fever
Former EastEnders star Harry Reid posted about both the World Cup game and Pride London, taking place on the same day. An incredible 22 years after it's original release at EURO 1996, Three Lions is UK No 1 once again.


The race therefore became a battle between the Mercedes keeping their old tyres alive and the aggressive Ferrari and Red Bull Racing cars chasing them down to seize the podium.

Hamilton added: "All I would say is that it's two races in which a Ferrari has taken out a Mercedes". Unfortunate because Le Castellet first time we got taken out and now it is the second time we got taken out.

But Minttu Raikkonen appeared to hit back at Hamilton on Instagram by suggesting people who don't like losing should "do ballet" instead.

Out came the safety auto again. It was not so easy to find a way through.

"The fans have been incredible this weekend and I'm grateful for the England football team at least doing great this weekend and keeping it positive", said Hamilton.

"The race was fantastic". I think I surprised him. "What an fantastic day".

Bottas was fourth with Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo fifth and Nico Hulkenberg sixth for Renault.

We may only be ten races through the season, but Vettel - leading by eight points - will not want a repeat of 2017 when he lost his firm grip on the title after the summer break.

Fernando Alonso was eighth for McLaren ahead of Kevin Magnussen in the Haas while Pierre Gasly finished 10th but was demoted after a five-second penalty that lifted Force India's Sergio Perez into the points.
