He may not have done it in quite the way he’d have liked, but Lewis Hamilton’s home win at Silverstone has put him on the brink of a century of F1 victories, and puts even more records against his name in the history books. Here they are, along with a plethora of other key numbers from the British Grand Prix…
• Hamilton’s 8th British GP win ties the F1 record for the most wins in a single event, matching his own 8 Hungarian GP victories and Michael Schumacher’s 8 French GP triumphs. REPORT: Hamilton overcomes first-lap collision with Verstappen to hunt down Leclerc for 8th British GP win
• It ends Hamilton’s streak of 5 races without a win before today.
• It was Hamilton’s 9th consecutive podium finish at Silverstone – an F1 record for a single circuit.
• Until Charles Leclerc’s showing today, Ferrari had led just 1 lap in the previous 27 Grands Prix.
• It was Leclerc’s 1st podium finish since the 2020 British GP on August the 2nd last year. DRIVER OF THE DAY: Leclerc's stunning Silverstone performance wins your vote
