Lewis Hamilton won a crash-hit British Grand Prix on Sunday to cut Mercedes teammate ’s lead in the drivers’ championship from 29 points to just four after the German had his first non-finish of the season.

Hamilton, the 2008 champion, started sixth on the grid. The British driver leapt to fourth on the opening lap before it was red-flagged, and suspended for an hour, following a crash involving 2007 champion of Ferrari and Felipe Massa of Williams.

championship leader Nico Rosberg claimed pole position for the British Grand Prix on Saturday, capitalizing on a critical error of judgment by his Mercedes teammate on the last lap of a shock-filled and rain-hit qualifying session.

The German secured pole by persevering on his final lap in drying conditions as Hamilton — who had the fastest time up to that point — aborted his lap and pulled into the pits, believing that the his time could not be bettered.

Lewis Hamilton topped the times ahead of Mercedes teammate and series leader on Friday in second practice at the British Grand Prix.

The 2008 World Champion clocked a best lap of 1:34.508 to outpace Rosberg, who leads him by 29 points in the championship, by 0.228 seconds.

But on a warm and windy day Hamilton then stopped on track with an engine problem that hit his preparations for Sunday’s key race, which he has targeted for victory in a bid to reboot his title challenge.
