Following last week's drama-filled race in Austria, the British Grand Prix offered a thrilling finish with Lewis Hamilton holding off runner-up Max Verstappen and Lando Norris in third place to earn his first victory since 2021.

The weather caused some problems early in the race, as rain was falling in Northamptonshire. There may have been some natural forces at work trying to help the Mercedes team because the sun came out and skies turned blue not long before Hamilton passed Norris for the lead on lap 40.

Hamilton was more than three seconds ahead of Verstappen at that point. He was able to hold onto that advantage for the final four laps to end his 50-race winless drought. His last victory prior to Sunday was at the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix on Dec. 5, 2021.

The victory by Hamilton also saved what initially had been a rough day for the Mercedes team. George Russell, who started the race from the pole position, had to retire on the 34th lap due to a suspected water system issue with his car.

Following Russell's departure, Hamilton was able to give the crowd in England a memorable moment to celebrate. He had been flirting with a win recently, finishing in the top four in each of the past three races.

The victory for Hamilton was a historic one that he got to celebrate with his family, as it gave him the most wins on a single track by any F1 driver.
