LONDON (Reuters) - Lewis Hamilton won the British Formula One Grand Prix on Sunday, the Briton closing the gap on his Mercedes team mate Nico Rosberg after the championship leader was forced to retire with gearbox problems.

Finn Valtteri Bottas finished second in his Williams, while Australia's Daniel Ricciardo took third for Red Bull.
