Lewis Hamilton chasing record 6th British Grand Prix win at home race

First-lap contact with Verstappen was fair- Raikkonen			Getty Images for Red Bull

"I remember yesterday, when we did the brief, I was like, "Ron, you should tell Charlie, someone's going to crash".

But Hamilton said he was relishing the challenge from Ferrari - and the evolving Silverstone circuit. I think it was the bump.

'I go into this weekend with same mentality, hoping the auto is reliable. It's true that they are very, very strong around here and you'd expect them to be very strong tomorrow. The next race will be held at Silverstone on July 8, 2018.

Raikkonen is 45 points adrift of Vettel at the top of the drivers' championship and has yet to win a race compared to his teammate's three victories.

"But I say "we hope not" because every time a auto stops in an uncontrolled way where a failure happens and systems are shut down in a way which is unusual, we can't be completely sure until we have done all the necessary checks that all the bits of the vehicle which are sealed and which do attract penalties weren't affected. I'm confident we have done everything possible to make sure it doesn't happen again". Hamilton insisted that they should have won the race.

The Mercedes driver has already booked Sunday week as a day off in his hectic diary so he can be in Russian Federation hoping to see England end 52 years of hurt. Maybe ten years ago it was more likely that every team, every vehicle, would stop at some point in a race but we've seen in the last few years that's very unlikely that it will happen.

Reaction: Neymar scared by a ghost? "This should be a sport of ability, of determination, a game of men, not of so much clowning". The rapid recovery seemed miraculous for a player who missed the last three months of the season with a broken right foot.

Christian Horner, the Red Bull team principal has been critical of the move and believes he would never single out an employee for such a misjudgment.

"We've had a tough time for many years now, even really before Eric joined", Brown said before the team's home British Grand Prix, describing the situation as uncompetitive and unacceptable. "It's how the sport should be in a sense, that you're squeezing more out of the cars and out of the drivers as well so I think it's not a bad thing". I don't like to put the blame somewhere else. There's obviously talk of the historic number of wins but I'm grateful just to be fighting for a sixth win at Silverstone, I'm very privileged. Alonso denied he was calling the shots at McLaren, with his former race engineer Andrea Stella promoted to performance director and Brazilian Gil de Ferran, an Indy 500 victor with whom Alonso worked at Indianapolis in 2017, brought in as sporting director.

"He'd got enough in the tank to see off the challenge to the end of the race".

"It's going to be very, very close this weekend, the Ferraris are really fast".

"I was on the Soft and the Medium tyres today; the Soft felt better than the Medium, and they seem to last - which is impressive if you look at the forces and loads they have to take on this track".
