“Oh what a day, I love Silverstone!
And later added:
“I can’t tell you how proud I am. To be in front of my home crowd, there are so many flags out there.
“I am so grateful to everyone who came out but I couldn’t have done it without my team.
“The guys at the factory, their wives and kids, they are all dedicated to their jobs. We have over 2000 people in my team to make this possible.”
Sunday’s victory, the seventh win in 10 races this season, moves him 39 points clear of Mercedes teammate Bottas and puts reigning Formula 1 world champion Lewis Hamilton in pole position to claim a sixth world title.
