Hamilton questions Ferrari's tactics, Latest Others News

Sebastian Vettel took advantage of a bad start and disastrous first lap for Lewis Hamilton to win the British Grand Prix and extend his lead in the championship standings yesterday. He acknowledged he had been concerned ahead of the race itself. "I find it a bit unnecessary to even go there". It doesn't matter. It held up. "It's the race but it's still annoying twice on three Global Positioning System", the team said.

Indeed, it was only Hamilton's brilliance which prevented Vettel from taking pole.

But spurred on by a record 140,000 race-day crowd, the home favourite drove superbly to race back to second place and said on Twitter afterwards he "used every ounce of energy fighting up the grid".

Hamilton's team-mate Valtteri Bottas then led and a second safety vehicle, after Renault's Carlos Sainz and Haas' Romain Grosjean collided, kept the front four nose to tail and only fractions apart.

Hamilton's Mercedes suffered a hit from the Ferrari of Kimi Raikkonen on turn three of the opening lap at Silverstone, forcing him to the back of the pack from where he had to fight through the field to finish second behind Sebastian Vettel in the other Ferrari. "Interesting tactics I would say from their side, but we'll do what we can to fight them". Later he was quick to say it wasn't an issue: "I don't have any concerns".

The race therefore became a battle between the Mercedes keeping their old tyres alive and the aggressive Ferrari and Red Bull Racing cars chasing them down to seize the podium.

Vettel finished 2.264 seconds ahead of Hamilton. What's more, Mercedes had taken great pleasure in dominating on Italian soil at Monza in recent years - a track where Ferrari's victory drought dates back to 2010 - and this was seen as payback. "But that's how it goes sometimes". "It was not a straightforward race".

Sam Williams, Ben's father, shared his gratitude with the Independent , saying, "They had already done more for Ben than we could ask for, so this was just such a kind and thoughtful gesture".

Driving conditions were ideal under clear blue skies and temperatures well above the seasonal norms, though the heat made tire management tricky for the teams.

The appearance of the safety auto on the 33rd of 52 laps, after Sauber's Marcus Ericsson crashed, was greeted with a huge cheer from the 140,500 crowd and was just what Hamilton needed to close the gap. He was able to emerge unaided.

"If our two drivers make a mistake twice and take the same team out, I would be apologizing".

Toto Wolff reveals Mercedes will go "full attack" this afternoon at Silverstone. "I know I'm not ideal", he wrote. There was a delay before the Swede emerged from his vehicle, but the fact he did so apparently unharmed speaks volumes for the improvements in safety in F1. By lap 47, the Ferrari finally used DRS to storm past the Finn and soar into the distance.

On re-start, at Stowe, Bottas pulled away. Bottas came home fourth, with Daniel Ricciardo fifth and Nico Hulkenberg sixth. Pierre Gasly claimed the final point in 10 place for Toro Rosso.

Brendon Hartley's wretched Formula One run has continued after he failed to finish the British Grand Prix at Silverstone. "Everybody brings updates to every race and there is never a silver bullet that provides you three tenths or four tenths, which was the difference between us and Ferrari a year ago". "Ferrari have got a little bit fortunate in the last couple of races so I hope that we get a few more positive races".
