British Grand Prix 2017

15 July 2017

Free Practice 3 for the British Grand Prix ended with the Mercedes and Ferrari teammates splitting each other up. Bottas's auto will need a gearbox change similar to the one that Hamilton's did in Austria, which means that this week the Finn will drop five places on the grid on Sunday.

Mercedes have been the class of the field at Silverstone, and - with Bottas effectively out of the running for the number one spot on the starting grid - Hamilton will be considered as the overwhelming favourite to secure his 67th career pole on Saturday. But he did just one lap.

Hamilton, also, has good reason to wish to claw back some points by winning his home race for a fourth year in a row and a fifth overall, to draw level with Alain Prost's record.

With Vettel increasing his advantage at the top and Bottas cutting the gap and threatening to join the title scrap, Hamilton described the 10th grand prix of a 20-race season as "must win". His number 55 auto had only been cleared to race earlier this weekend after the team voluntarily changed a tyre tether the stewards had deemed to be unsafe during a scrutineering test on Thursday. "I felt very comfortable in these conditions - they are the conditions we grew up racing in here in England". We started on the right foot straight from FP1 and we've built up from there. " ... People always ask me where I get my inspiration from".

The Toro Rosso drivers were split by just 0.007s, with Carlos Sainz pipping Daniil Kvyat to 11th. We have decisions to make and you have to stand by them and feel proud and I do.

Vettel told Horner he was leaving Red Bull for Ferrari in 2014 in a move that stunned the sport.

The Mercedes driver claimed his fifth pole at Silverstone in dominant fashion with a stunning late lap, heading nearest rival Kimi Raikkonen by 0.5s.

Championship leader Vettel had to cut short his trial with the so-called "shield" on Friday after complaining of dizziness.

This was highlighted again on Sunday when, as the "silly season" rumours about the F1 transfer market began early, Ferrari chairman Sergio Marchionne revealed that the team was keen for him to stay - and had left it up to Vettel to sign a new contract when he is ready.

The three-time world champion's boss at Mercedes, Toto Wolff, believes Hamilton has had his fair share of bad luck and hopes that the momentum will swing back his way in front of his home crowd. "You will have seen over the previous years how much I appreciate and respect that and try to give and enjoy the weekend with the fans and that doesn't change", said the 32-year-old who celebrated his win last year by jumping into the sea of fans gathered below the podium.

"Forward vision is not very good".

"I've tried to prepare the best way I can with a relaxed few days away".
