Lewis Hamilton: 'Insane' Silverstone as bumpy as the Nordschleife

"Every driver is different, and I've never worked with Lewis so I don't know what makes him tick, but it seems a fairly freakish thing for someone to need to do - to throw themselves under the bus to motivate a driver to go from fourth back into the lead", Horner said.

After a brief red flag period to recover Verstappen's vehicle, it was Vettel who posted the fastest lap with a 1m27.552s to lead Lewis Hamilton by 0.187s. The Red Bull went backward across the grass and hit the wall with the right front first, pitching the right rear into the wall and breaking the suspension. Not many drivers can do that.

But nevertheless, Hamilton's Mercedes team mate Valtteri Bottas said that it was tyres - as well as a very potent looking Ferrari - that were his main concern for Sunday's race.

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

Sebastian Vettel believes Formula One's penalty system needs to be more flexible after he lost three grid positions and a potential race victory at the Austrian Grand Prix. "I think immediately after the race and as soon as they got the vehicle back that evening there was a fix that was designed and put into test mode so the team are super on it and confident that we've done everything we can to made sure it doesn't happen again". "I've got no time left in the tyres", said Hamilton, aware that a straightforward race win was in peril. Obviously for me, it sucked on the day, it will probably suck for somebody else at a point in the season, but I just think that all these things are unnecessary. Before being sidelined by a fuel pressure problem, he had already dropped from first to fourth when Mercedes failed to bring him in for an immediate pitstop after the virtual safety vehicle had been deployed. "I think it made us stronger". The next race will be held at Silverstone on July 8, 2018. "I'm confident we have done everything possible to make sure it doesn't happen again". Both Red Bull and Ferrari were quick to take advantage. I hope it is not a title decider, but I can't predict what is happening going forward.

'Everyone in the team will feel a nervousness. We have had far more success than failures. "What I can say is, from the experiences like we had last weekend, the team are very, very reactive". His was the lone McLaren at the end of the race, with team-mate Stoffel Vandoorne registering a DNF.

"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".
