Lewis Hamilton has accepted an apology from Kimi Raikkonen for their British GP crash and acknowledged the first-lap collision "was a racing incident".

Hamilton fought his way back from last place to finish second after Vettel's team-mate Kimi Raikkonen collided with his Mercedes on the opening lap.

Hamilton would run third with Raikkonen taking advantage of a mistake by Verstappen to take P4 on the Hangar Straight.

Hamilton and Raikkonen approached Village together but the Finn locked up and slid into the side of the Mercedes, spinning the reigning World Champion, who dropped to the rear of the field.

The Englishman clearly blamed Raikkonen, who was handed a 10-seconds penalty, for the crash and found it hard to face the Finn or accept an apology.

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.

Vettel made a cracking start from second place to beat Hamilton to the first corner.

But he surged back into contention and thanks to the safety vehicle being deployed on two occasions late on in the race surged into second place.
