Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton led from start to finish to reclaim top spot in the driver's race

Formula One champion Lewis Hamilton won the French Grand Prix from pole position for Mercedes on Sunday to retake the overall lead from Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel, who finished fifth after a first lap collision.

The victory was the 65th of Hamilton’s F1 career but the Briton’s first in France, which was returning to the calendar after a 10-year absence. He now leads Vettel by 14 points after eight of 21 races.

Red Bull’s Dutch 20-year-old Max Verstappen took the chequered flag in second place with Kimi Raikkonen completing the podium for Ferrari.
