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

Australian GP

Vettel heads into the British Grand Prix weekend just one point clear of Hamilton in the standings and asserted confidence that Ferrari can keep pace in the battle, after trailing off 12 months ago. Of course it's been added to and they've had a great advantage over the last few years, and their only main competition has been internal between their own drivers. "Very hard to manage the tyres, lot of blistering, but we manged to hang on", he said.

Vettel was not given a warning about Sainz closing in on him over team radio, but said he still has full confidence in his team.

Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen finished a close second, with teammate Vettel third against expectations after a grid penalty had demoted him to sixth on the grid. Verstappen's Red Bull team-mate Australian Daniel Ricciardo was also forced to retire on his 29th birthday.

In Austria, Vettel because of the fine started only sixth, but a double gathering of racers "the Mercedes of Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas helped the German to make the podium and take Hamilton the lead in the championship". "Look at how many wins I've had within this team".

The race hopes to improve on its 2018 four-day crowd of 295,000 next year.

"I used to remember playing with Ashley at school but just watching on the edge of your seat, the passion is insane for everyone that's watching their country play". "We know what will happen and when, and if it comes to that then it's very normal for us".




Naturally, Hamilton was none too pleased with the fact that Mercedes had scuppered his race strategy, but there was little to be done about it.

Kimi Raikkonen was next to slide off going around a turn, though the Finn was fortunate to avoid major damage and was able to return with grass-covered tires.

Hamilton was hit with a five-place penalty in Bahrain following an unscheduled gearbox change. Nico Hulkenberg ("Reno") - 34 10. The four-time world champion went to school in Stevenage with Manchester United midfielder Ashley Young, who has been a regular fixture in Gareth Southgate's World Cup teams so far. Bottas retired in the 14 lap due to a gearbox problem, sparking a virtual safety auto period. Red Bull - 189 4.

Fourth place in the race went to Romain Grosjean, who managed to score his first points since the 2017 Japanese Grand Prix, much to the relief of his Haas F1 team. "It's my mistake. Do what you can", replied Mercedes strategist James Vowles.

Do you think Verstappen would've still won the race if he wouldn't have made that move on Raikkonen?

"Probably more like somewhere in-between, but I don't want to get into predictions. I'm going to keep it free because I'm going to be in Russian Federation that day, supporting them".
