Hamilton's dominant win
Lewis Hamilton won his seventh race in Silverstone, the first for him starting from the second row of the grid.
Hamilton won by a margin of 1:08.577 over Nick Heidfeld, and this is the largest margin since Damon Hill led a depleted field by two laps in the 1995 Australian Grand Prix. In that race several front-runners retired due to collisions or mechanical failures, and Hill won ahead of Olivier Panis.
To find another race where the two leading drivers were on the same lap and the gap was bigger, we have to move back another year, at the 1994 Pacific Grand Prix, where Michael Schumacher won by 1:15.300 over Gerhard Berger.
