British Grand Prix 2017

The 2017 British Grand Prix (formally known as the 2017 Formula 1 Rolex British Grand Prix) was a Formula One motor race that took place on 16 July 2017 at the Silverstone Circuit in Silverstone, United Kingdom. This race was the seventy-second running of the British Grand Prix, the sixty-eighth time that the race has been run as a World Championship event, and the fifty-first time that the World Championship event has been held at the Silverstone Circuit.

Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel entered the round with a twenty-point lead over Mercedes’s Lewis Hamilton in the Drivers’ Championship. Mercedes led Ferrari by thirty-three points in the Constructors’ Championship.

The race was dominated and won by Lewis Hamilton, who achieved a grand slam: starting from pole position, leading every lap of the race, setting fastest lap, and winning with a 14-second lead over Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas.

With his fifth British Grand Prix win, Hamilton equalled the records of Alain Prost and Jim Clark, who won the race five times each. His championship rival Sebastian Vettel suffered a tyre failure with two laps to go and finished seventh. As a result, Vettel’s lead over Hamilton in the Drivers’ standings was cut down to one point. Kimi Räikkönen, Vettel’s teammate, suffered the same problem while in second position and lost his place to Bottas, and managed to finish third.
