Lewis Hamilton won the British Grand Prix from pole position on Sunday, but it was a hard fought victory for the Brit at his home race.

Hamilton has not been shy in declaring what winning at Silverstone and lifting the gold trophy means to him.

His first came in 2008 for McLaren and his second followed six years later for Mercedes, on both occasions he went on to win the Formula One World Championship, is three really a charm?

He also moved up in two very important and historic tables over the weekend, his pole position on Saturday was the 46th of his career moving him past Sebastian Vettel and into third in the all time record books.

Ayrton Senna is in 2nd place with 65 and Michael Schumacher is first with 68.

His third British Grand Prix on Sunday also moved him clear of Jackie Stewart, Stirling Moss and David Coulthard with Brit’s who had won their home race twice.

He is now only behind Nigel Mansell who won it four times and Jim Clark who won it five times.

But what was truly great about this race victory was the manor of the win.

The race with Williams, the rain, the pit strategy it all played its part in a thrilling British Grand Prix.
