Lewis Hamilton came agonisingly close to winning the French GP

Hamilton made the perfect start to the race when he overtook pole-setter Verstappen instantly.

At one point he was even told to adjust his headset – but the problem seemed deeper than that.

Nine laps before the end Verstappen overtook Valtteri Bottas to take second and provide a real threat to Hamilton’s dominance.
