Lewis Hamilton's victory in the British Grand Prix, his second on home soil, was among the most important victories of his career.
The Mercedes man is now only four points away from teammate Nico Rosberg, who retired from the lead at Silverstone, at the top of the drivers' standings, and both Silver Arrows drivers have been discussing their fortunes over what could prove to be a pivotal day in the title race.
It is a reflection of just how thrilling the grand prix was that Hamilton's win was arguably not even the biggest talking point.
That honour went to Kimi Raikkonen, whose first-lap crash served as a reminder that Formula One can never be too safe.
Ahead of the race, the 2007 world champion implied that he would not be remaining in F1 beyond the expiry of his current Ferrari contract—but the injuries sustained in the frightening shunt on the Wellington Straight may mean he vacates his cockpit sooner than anticipated.
Sebastian Vettel's superb battle with Fernando Alonso only added extra spice to the race, with the Red Bull driver less than pleased with his Ferrari counterpart's tactics.
Closing this week's roundup is Jenson Button, who went some way to proving the doubters—including his own boss—wrong with his best performance of the season.
