Lewis Hamilton sealed British GP circuit win in dramatic fashion.
Hamilton sealed the record seventh victory on the Silverstone circuit fashion.
The reigning champion described the exhilarating moments which saw him win the circuit on just three wheels.
From pole position, the Englishman led all afternoon to move ahead of Alain Prost, on six victories in the historic race.
‘I’ve definitely never experienced anything like that on the last lap,’ he said. ‘My heart nearly stopped.
‘I was just praying to get around and not be too slow. I nearly didn’t get through the last few corners. Thank God we did.’
Mercedes team-mate Valtteri Bottas also suffered damage after an afternoon that looked like a two-horse race between them.
Hamilton just limped over the line, his rubber shredded, 5.8sec ahead of rival Max Verstappen in an astonishing late twist.
The Dutchman would have won but for going in for fresh tyres to attack, successfully, for the quickest lap.
