I tried to manage, I could see my tyres opening up. But that's what the sport has developed into. Every incident needs to be looked at.

"As soon as we got the vehicle back that evening we had a fix designed and put into test-mode".

The Austrian penalty was imposed despite both Vettel and Sainz progressing to the final phase of qualifying without any difficulty.

Vettel said: "They are very strong around here".

"The bad is that, one, I always think countries seem to waste money when they resurface the tracks". In trying to explain how he had lost the lead of the race, Mercedes head strategist James Vowles apologised twice to Hamilton over team radio, which was broadcast publically across television channels.

Mercedes failed to score points at last weekend's grand prix after both cars retired with reliability issues, but prior to Lewis Hamilton's retirement the pit wall threw away the lead of the race by failing to pit Hamilton under a Virtual Safety Car.

Verstappen hit the front after Mercedes kept Hamilton out on track during a virtual safety auto period that followed Bottas's retirement, with the other contenders pitting for fresh tyres.

"The track is the fastest it has ever been; we're flat out through Copse and Turn 1 and through Turn 2 with the DRS - it's insane how fast it is", he said. "There's a great energy about the team".

Organisers at Silverstone opted to resurface the entire track layout early in 2018, ostensibly to aid MotoGP riders, but several drivers highlighted the bumpy nature of the circuit in practice.

"We have a very good system in place, we're trying to make sure it doesn't happen again".

"I do really feel like I have the best strategy team behind me". We have had far more success than failures.

We've ranked the drivers in order from lowest to highest wages but who earns the most? The once-dominant team has not won a race since 2012 or stood on the podium since 2014. Daniel Ricciardo (Red Bull) - 96 5.

"Part of it is tires, part of it is it's a much more competitive year than last year, that we're fighting with two teams, it's a lot closer, there's a lot more pressure on. I hope we can be there". I hope it is not a title decider, but I can't predict what is happening going forward. "I'm very grateful to be in a position to be able to fight for (the record) here at Silverstone, for the sixth time". I think it's happening everywhere else.

'I go into this weekend with same mentality, hoping the auto is reliable.

McLaren driver Fernando Alonso told reporters separately that he trusted Brown 100 percent, although he had also had the same faith in Boullier.
