The titanic scrap at the top of the table eased slightly this weekend thanks to Lewis Hamilton's struggles during qualifying. Nico Rosberg moves 14 points clear of his teammate and closest rival thanks to today's emphatic home win. But it could easily have been so much worse given Lewis' 20th place starting slot.

Behind the top pairing, Valtteri Bottas continues to chip away at the gap to his rivals. After passing Vettel for fifth in Silverstone, back-to-back second place finishes sees the Finn edge ever closer to Alonso and Ricciardo in front. Further down the order, alarm bells must surely be ringing at Ferrari with Räikkönen again failing to score, leaving him with just 19 points to teammate Alonso's comparably absurd 97.
