Lewis Hamilton survived a dramatic finale to win the British Grand Prix Sunday, just making it across the line on three tyres to beat a fast closing Max Verstappen on Red Bull.

In the process, Hamilton registered a record seventh home British Grand Prix victory after his Mercedes suffered a dramatic last lap puncture.

In an astonishing finish to a race he had dominated from pole position, the Briton stretched his Formula One world championship lead to 30 points.

Verstappen would have won had he not pitted for fresh tyres in a bid to score an extra point for the fastest lap, while Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc third.

Hamilton’s team mate and closest rival Valtteri Bottas failed to score after also suffering a late puncture and finishing 11th.
