WHERE THE RACE WAS WON
The safety car start helped Lewis Hamilton - after the sniping with his team-mate Nico Rosberg, Mercedes must have been relieved that they wouldn't shunt each other off at the first corner. After that magnificently brave last-ditch lap in qualifying, Hamilton was buoyant - and in front of a home crowd he refused to let go of the lead. He crossed the line, clenched his fist in blazing sunshine, leapt out of his car and promptly opted for a bit of crowd-surfing.

Five stars out of five. This was always going to be his day, leading from the front, never faltering, and the icing on the cake was Rosberg's post-race penalty - meaning that the German is now just a single point in front of the defending champion.
On the down-side? Some might say that his podium interview did not do much to quell the booing of Rosberg, which was really rather undignified.
PIT RADIO EXCHANGE OF THE DAY
Lots of radio fun today, with Rosberg investigated for messages when his gearbox started to fail. His team told him to avoid seventh gear - amongst other pieces of advice - and more than three hours after the race, he was suitably punished.
This exchange between Manor and their stricken driver Rio Haryanto raised a smile, though. The optimism of the team had to be admired.
MOVE OF THE RACE
Nico Rosberg's nous got him past young Max Verstappen and into second in the closing stages. That's evidence of savvy - and experience. The teenager had done well to hold off the Mercedes for as long as he did. And who knows? If Verstappen hadn't kept Rosberg at bay for as long as he did then the 10-second penalty might not have been enough to rob the German of that second place.
At least Verstappen can console himself with his own piece of brilliance that took him up to P2 early on, an audacious move round Rosberg at Stowe.
The Mercedes pair decided to stay out on their wet tyres after the safety car went in at the end of lap 5 - apart from giving them chance to break away and deal with the standing water, they also kept clear of the chaos in the pit lane as everyone else immediately dived down there. Sebastian Vettel made the switch early on - and it didn't pay off for him.
Fernando Alonso managed to drive himself out of a gravel pit halfway through and still finished 13th in his McLaren-Honda, with which he was pleased, according to his post-race tweet.
FACEPALM OF THE WEEKEND
Sebastian Vettel had a shocker - the wrong decision when it came to tyre strategy, and then an incident forcing Felipe Massa off the track, incurring a five-second penalty plus two points. He finished ninth - not a great day for him and Ferrari.
Quite a few at Silverstone, what with Lewis Hamilton inviting his celebrity chums from the worlds of sport and music.
