Lewis Hamilton And Mercedes Say British GP Win Answers His Critics

The Briton's drive from pole to flag on an overcast afternoon was lonely, uneventful and dominant - in complete contrast to his Ferrari rival's afternoon - with Mercedes team mate Valtteri Bottas finishing 14 seconds behind to secure the one-two. With hindsight it is easy but at the time [the tyres] felt okay'.

The last person in this year's grid other than Hamilton to win at this track is Fernando Alonso, who has had a highly disappointing season and is set to start at the back following engine penalties. "It has been a ideal weekend for us as a team".

Vettel had been running third when he suffered a puncture with two laps remaining and had to pit for a new tyre - just moments after the same fate had befallen Ferrari team-mate Kimi Raikkonen.

"This vehicle has been a little bit trickier to get used to and get the set-up right", explained Hamilton.

One is a more modern black/red box, while the other features wood panelling, which serves as a nice callback to the Atari 2600. The Mini NES succeeded, in part, due to its simplicity and cheap price, both of which would be hard in a more capable console.


Victory for Hamilton, whose 67th pole position put him just one short of Michael Schumacher's leading mark, came after a week in which he faced staunch criticism for being the only driver to skip a Formula One live event held on the streets of central London.

"Some people talk about the championship but it's still way too early and I'm still 60-70 points off Seb, so I am definitely not thinking about that".

Both Hamilton and Bottas managed their tyres efficiently on the demanding high-speed circuit, but Ferrari, having opted for an aggressive and risky strategy, were caught out. "In the morning, it was a little more tricky and, obviously the conditions were not easy, they were changing a lot, but the auto behaved as good as I think it could". I know how to get myself ready.

"I did start the race on the soft tire and had to run really long and we actually had to extend the first stint quite a bit because everything was still looking good. I think he owned the pole position today".

He said: "I share Israel's concerns about Hezbollah's activity in south Lebanon and about the arms the group has". Two leaders also discussed fighting extremism in Syria and elsewhere, and improving economic cooperation.


Nico Hulkenberg finished in 6th place ahead of Vettel while Esteban Ocon and Sergio Perez took P8 and P9 for Force India.

The Briton also set the fastest lap and stepped out of his vehicle only one point behind Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel at the halfway stage in the season.

He was very angry when he shouted at the team by radio at the end of Q3.

"What we can exclude is that we had any carcass failure on Kimi's tyre, because the tyre was still inflated", he said.
