Red Bull's Max Verstappen reeled off his sixth straight win in Sunday's British Grand Prix with Lando Norris for McLaren in second.

Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton completed the Silverstone podium.

Verstappen's first ever British Grand Prix win drew Red Bull level with McLaren's record run of 11 consecutive race victories in 1988.

The double world champion has now won eight of the 10 races run this season to stretch his lead in the drivers standings.

Verstappen was beaten off the start by Norris, on second in the grid, but soon asserted his dominance to deny a home win for the British driver in front of 160,000 fans.

“We had a terrible start, Lando was super quick, I took a few laps to pass him then everything looked okay,” said the Dutchman.

“Very happy that we won again - 11 wins for the team is incredible.” “Pretty amazing, insane,” smiled Norris, after a tense fight with Hamilton for second. (AFP)
