Hamilton Wins British Grand Prix Again

Lewis Hamilton came in first place during the British Grand Prix for the fifth time last month. The Formula 1 race was held at Silverstone Circuit in the UK. Hamilton, 32, executed his fourth consecutive home win since 2014. Right behind Hamilton, was his teammate Valtteri Bottas who placed in second while Kimi Raikkonen finished in third. Several days before his big win, Hamilton received criticism for not attending a F1 promotional event which made fans and stakeholders nervous. Despite the criticism, Hamilton celebrated his victory by crowd surfing before the post-race press conference following the race.
