Lewis back on top - now for the Rafa and Roger show...

Brilliant drive in driving rain gives Lewis Hamilton a fantastic win in the British Grand Prix at Silverstone. While most Championship contenders spun at least once - and some three times - Lewis confounded his critics and stayed on the road, winning by a second - a country mile.

Great weekend of sport started by 14 year old Laura Robson, first British Wimbledon champion since Annabelle Croft...

Just switched to the Gentleman's Final thankfully delayed by rain almost until the chequered flag at Silverstone...

Already Rafa Nadal has already won a break of serve from Roger Federer in the opening games.

Can the Spaniard knock the Swiss off his perch?

Would certainly be good for tennis and I'm cheering for Nadal.

Whovever wins, looks like we're in for one of the great finals...

Enjoy.

UPDATE: Neither player let us down, did they? Surely it was one of the greatest, and certainly the longest, ever Wimbledon final. An incredibly edge of the seat five hours duelling between the world's two finest - and genuinely nicest players. Rafa Nadal finally, finally beat off a fantastic fightback from Roger Federer. Even Nadal felt for the five-times champion being denied his record sixth championship in a row...

Fantastic.

And guess who was at Silverstone.

Hamilton overtook his team mate right under my nose!

It was the best atmosphere I've experienced at a motor racing circuit since Mansell 1992.

I was there too!

Glad you had a good day - was Hamilton's team mate under orders to let him pass...Hamilton certainly made it look easy...

I reckon the move Donington is good news...do you agree?

Agree.

Access is miles better and there's an airport on the doorstep.

As for the Hamilton overtaking his team mate.

It was right under my nose. Kovi braked at the corner and Lewis just came through without braking.

Who knows?
