Vettel takes fastest time headed into British Grand Prix

Australian GP

Sebastian Vettel won this year's Australian Grand Prix with Lewis Hamilton second

I tried to manage, I could see my tyres opening up.

But Hamilton said he was relishing the challenge from Ferrari - and the evolving Silverstone circuit.

"I don't think you have anything to fear if it goes to penalties either". "I mean, we're all managing, but if someone sticks [with DRS at T1] in qualifying, they're going to crash - so that's kind of why it's an unnecessary kind of danger".

Having been resurfaced in February of this year, Pirelli have reacted to the strenuous demands of the grippy British Grand Prix track by bringing their hardest tyre compound selection for any race this season to Silverstone, including the new, ice blue-walled hard tyre.

This year's grand prix was held from March 22-25, welcoming nearly 300,000 fans over four days as Melbourne hosted the opening round of the 2018 season, which saw Sebastian Vettel victorious for the second year running.

For Prince Charles, the expenditures are probably worth it because Meghan is now an ambassador for the royal family, Nicholl said. In the meantime, we'll just have to enjoy the dozens of epic style moments she's sure to have award-winning or not.

"I've already booked Sunday week as my day off and I'm keeping it free as I want to be in Russian Federation that day to support England", said Hamilton, who played football at school in Stevenage with England left-back Ashley Young.

"We have a very good system in place, we're trying to make sure it doesn't happen again". Chief strategist James Vowles made a public apology to Hamilton over the radio during last Sunday's race. We have had far more success than failures. Maybe ten years ago it was more likely that every team, every auto, would stop at some point in a race but we've seen in the last few years that's very unlikely that it will happen. Ferrari and Red Bull have lost points.

"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". It was going to take some time to contend for titles, he conceded, saying: "I think we are years away". I don't like to put the blame somewhere else.

"Probably more like somewhere in-between, but I don't want to get into predictions". "I'm very grateful to be in a position to be able to fight for (the record) here at Silverstone, for the sixth time". Alonso denied he was calling the shots at McLaren, with his former race engineer Andrea Stella promoted to performance director and Brazilian Gil de Ferran, an Indy 500 victor with whom Alonso worked at Indianapolis in 2017, brought in as sporting director. His was the lone McLaren at the end of the race, with team-mate Stoffel Vandoorne registering a DNF. "With Zak obviously we have a very close relationship even if it's a short time that we met".
