  1. Sainz wins after huge Zhou crash

    Andrew Benson

    BBC Sport’s chief F1 writer

    Sainz and Hamilton

    Ferrari's Carlos Sainz took his first Formula 1 victory at the end of an extraordinary British Grand Prix packed full of incident and drama.

    The Spaniard benefited from questionable strategy calls from Ferrari, which cost his team-mate Charles Leclerc the win and a chance to revive his title hopes.

    Lewis Hamilton was in the battle for victory but finished third behind Red Bull's Sergio Perez after a frantic final final nine laps following a late safety car.

    Leclerc could finish only fourth and Ferrari missed the opportunity to make up significant ground in the title race on a bad day for championship leader Max Verstappen.

    The Red Bull driver finished only seventh, his car slowed by rear bodywork damage, but lost only six points to Leclerc as a result of Ferrari's race management.

    Verstappen leads Perez in the championship by 34 points, with Leclerc a further nine adrift.

    Ferrari team principle Mattia Binotto telling Sky Sports what he said to Charles Leclerc after the end of the race:

    "There is nothing to sort out internally. It was to tell him I understand your disappointment but you did a fantastic race today.

  8. We want to be there and fight - Wolff

    Toto Wolff

    Mercedes boss Toto Wolff, speaking to Sky Sports: "I am very pleased. The car had some performance today. We were in for the win which is very encouraging.

    "We lost momentum after the restart, but we had almost no bouncing which is good. The pace was there on the hards and mediums but the softs it was not there.

    "Without the safety car we would have won the race. The most encouraging things is we had a car that could have won the race. We were that close, it would have been so fantastic.

    "George [Russell] tried to restart the car but he couldn't.

    "I think we just want to win races this season. We want to be there and fight, so we have a car we can develop for next year also.

    "We have just today for the first time started to flirt a bit with the car. Where will it end? If we win what will that mean?"

  9. 'It's great to be back in the fight' - Hamilton

    Hamilton

    "Definitively for a while the win was feeling on," Lewis Hamilton told Sky Sports. "A bunch of things went against us today. The start, we went to third and they pushed us back to fifth. Then I was caught behind Lando.

    "Unfortunately the gap got too big and the pit-stop wasn't quick. In the end I couldn't get the grip in the tyres and it was too much.

    "Charles Leclerc did a great job, a great battle. He's such a sensible driver, definitely different to what I experienced last year. Cops for example we got through there no problem.

    "Big improvement from the car, we've still got work to do. We have to keep pushing and we have to keep pushing.

    "It's great to be back in the fight."

  10. Post update

    It's been a difficult season for Mercedes so far, with the car being called everything from a "*** box" to a "horror show". After today's dramatic day at Silverstone, the Silver Arrows have a slightly more positive outlook about the future.

  11. Silverstone crowd what we live for - Norris

    Norris

    Lando Norris, speaking to Sky Sports: "These fans are crazy! First of all I'm happy to see Alex and Zhou get out the car all good."

    On Sainz's first race win: "I'm happy for Carlos, he deserves it. He beat me to it but I should hope so, he's a in a car a second-a-lap quicker than me.

    On overtaking Hamilton: "It's always nice when you get past a quicker car. I overtook him in front of all the British fans, I should be an eight-time world champions.

    "We had to make the call whether to stay on hards or box for softs. We made the wrong call or the right decision but just too late. It costs us today but that's on us.

    "It's awesome, it's what we live for. I'm already looking forward to Silverstone next year. It's a lot of fun. Tiring but it's worth it.

    "It doesn't sink in the amount of people who are there to support you. It's so cool, just really cool."

  12. Post update

    Lando Norris has just done an interview with Sky Sports that was accompanied by constant chanting of his name by the supporters - they love him. He's now up on the fence taking selfies and getting the crowd to shout "waaaaaaaaaay" on his command.

    Here is what the McLaren driver, who finished sixth, had to say...

  13. Winning moment

    Australia 2016

    Do you think Carlos would recreate this picture from his debut in Australia in 2016?

    The Spanish driver was knocking on the door of a race win at the Canadian Grand Prix two weeks ago and now he finally gets to wear the number one cap and swig from the bumper champagne bottle.

    #bbcf1

    Fenners: Now that was what F1 should be..... brilliant driving and overtaking with everyone having a chance of winning. More of that please!

    Ash Wilkinson: The British GP NEVER fails to provide, does it? Just utterly brilliant every year - this is Formula One at its absolute best. Hell of a drive from Lewis, but delighted for Carlos Sainz. Richly deserved - and how good is it to see the crowds on the track again?

  17. 'From my side I lost so much'

    Charles Leclerc, who finished fourth for Ferrari: "It was nice, on the other hand I had hards and everybody else was on softs. In the end I gave my absolute best.

    "It wasn't enough and obviously its disappointing."

    [On his chat with Mattia Binotto post-race] "He wanted to cheer me up and that's it.

    "We will have to look at the global picture. From my side I only have my race. From my side I feel like I lost so much time. This is only my view but I have not seen the full picture.

    "I don't want the focus to be pointed to my disappointing race. For my teammate to win a first race in Formula One is very special."

  18. 'I gave it everything' - Hamilton

    Hamilton

    Lewis Hamilton on getting on the podium:

    "I gave it everything today, I was trying to chase down those Ferraris. Congratulations to Carlos, in the end I was in that battle but those guys were just too quick on the straights for us today.

    "We lost a bit of time in the pit stops, and then I was chasing and chasing, but the pace was good on both stint.

    "This is a huge bonus for us to be on the podium. I'm glad everyone was safe from the big crash at the beginning. But we are going to continue to push, try and give it everything we can."
