Hamilton notches Silverstone win

Lewis Hamilton won his home grand prix at Silverstone when he mastered the rainy conditions to take over the lead in the driver's championship.

The drivers' championship is changing hands after every race for the last two races now its Hamilton's turn after a superb drive at Silverstone in difficult conditions.

Hence its not surprising that there were seven retirements with David Coulthard being the first to spin in his last Silverstone race.

BMW Sauber's Nick Heidfeld came second and at least make sure that that BMW maintained their second position on the constructors' race.

I think it was a surprise to see Rubens Barrichello on the podium as he came third. This is a welcome return to the podium for Barrichello who was last there during his Ferrari days and and its good for Honda who seem to be making some slow progress this year.

And talking about Ferrari, Kimi Raikkonen could only get fourth place despite starting ahead of Hamilton on the grid. His team-mate Felipe Massa did not fare any better finishing a distant 13th and with a few spins along the way.

Pole setter Heikki Kovalainen finished in fifth just ahead of former champions Fernando Alonso who came in sixth place.

The last two points places went to Toyota's Jarno Trulli and William's Kazuki Nakajima.

Its good to see Williams back to getting some points after failing to do so in the last two races in Canada and France.

The tussle continues in a fortnight's time at Hockenheim. It will be interesting to see who will be leading the drivers' championshiop after that race.
