Seven times world champion Lewis Hamilton took his first Formula One victory in 945 days with a record ninth British Grand Prix win on July 7.

The 39-year-old Mercedes driver’s last win before Silverstone was in Saudi Arabia on December 5, 2021, and Sunday was a record-extending 104th of his career.

Red Bull’s triple world champion Max Verstappen finished 1.4 seconds behind, extending his overall lead, and McLaren’s Lando Norris was third. Mercedes’ pole-sitter George Russell retired with a suspected water system issue.
