British F1 racing driver Lewis Hamilton has won the British Grand Prix for a record 9th occasion with Mercedes AMG at the Silverstone circuit on Sunday. Hamilton left behind the likes of Max Verstappen and Lando Norris, winning his first since the Saudi Arabia Grand Prix in 2021.

The Silverstone GP was the 104th-race win for the seven-time World Champion, but perhaps one of the most emotional ones yet as it came after a 945-day wait and also as it was his last home race with Mercedes.

"I can’t stop crying! It’s been since 2021, every day getting up, trying to fight, to train, to put my mind to the task and work as hard as I can with this amazing team. This is my last race here at the British Grand Prix with this team [before moving to Ferrari], so I wanted to win this so much for them, because I love them, I appreciate them so much, all the hard work they’ve been putting in all over these years. I’m forever grateful to everyone in this team, everyone at Mercedes, all of our partners," he said in a post-match interview.

"A few too many letdowns today" - Lando Norris

Mclaren will be disappointed with the result on Sunday. Their two drivers were poised perfectly to finish the race in P1 and P2 and could have secured a double podium which would have taken the team past Ferrari in the Constructors Championship but will now have to settle for a P3 and P4 finish.

"It was tough, it was enjoyable, it was fun battling these guys. These tricky conditions are always on a knife's edge and you're risking a lot. So many good things, but a few too many letdowns today and as a team I don't think we quite did the job that we should have done, or good enough. But still lovely to be at the podium here at silverstone," added Lando Norris
