British driver Lewis Hamilton won the 10th Grand Prix of Formula 1’s 2021 season held in the United Kingdom on Sunday, according to Anadolu Agency.

The 52-lap British Grand Prix was held at the Silverstone Circuit, the East Midlands, on a 5.8-kilometer (3.6-mile) track.

Despite having to regain the penalty time, Hamilton clinched his 99th career victory to complete the race at 1:58:23.

Ferrari's Monaquese driver Charles Leclerc came second – 3.8 seconds behind Hamilton – and Finnish driver Valtteri Bottas finished third, 11.1 seconds behind.

The 11th race is set to be held at the Hungarian Grand Prix on Aug. 1.
