McLaren’s Fernando Alonso finished second. Ralf Schumacher again had an extremely unlucky race with him retiring on lap 22.

Here are comments by Kimi Raikkonen after winning the formula one British Grand Prix 2007
“We had a good car all weekend,” said Kimi Raikkonen. “At the beginning, I tried to save some fuel and look after car and tyres.
“Once we knew we had enough fuel I was able to close on Lewis and try to overtake him. But we knew he was coming in so didn’t take too much of a risk.
“It was a very nice feeling to win the race. We’ve been close here a few times but something has happened and we haven’t been able to win. Now, finally, we have done it and it’s one of the nicest races and feelings.
“Hopefully, the formula one championship is not over. It’s still going to be a long season.
