Hamilton wins rainy British GP
Lewis Hamilton won the British Grand Prix for the first time, leading his rain-soaked home race from the fourth lap to take the lead in the Formula One drivers championship.
The McLaren driver lapped all but two cars in the field Sunday and finished more than a minute ahead of Nick Heidfeld's BMW Sauber in a race at Silverstone that was full of spinouts and near misses. Honda's Rubens Barrichello was third for his first podium in four years and Honda's first of the season.
'It is by far the best victory I've ever had,' Hamilton said after waving to the 90,000 fans who gave him a standing ovation after he won by 68.5 seconds.
