Motor racing-Hamilton takes record sixth British GP win
SILVERSTONE, England, July 14 (Reuters) - Formula One world champion Lewis Hamilton won his home British Grand Prix for a record sixth time on Sunday to stretch his lead over Mercedes team mate Valtteri Bottas to 39 points.
It was Hamilton's seventh win in 10 races this season and 80th of his career. He also took an extra point for the fastest lap.
The five-times world champion made the most of a brief safety car period, after Bottas had already made his pitstop, to come in for fresh tyres and then stay in the lead to the chequered flag. (Reporting by Alan Baldwin, editing by Christian Radnedge)
