British Grand Prix: Unhappy Lewis Hamilton points finger at Ferrari’s ‘interesting tactics’

6th July 2018 Silverstone Circuit Silverstone England British Formula One Grand Prix Friday free practice Lewis Hamilton in his Mercedes AMG Petronas Motorsport Mercedes F1 W09

That triggered a safety vehicle on lap 32 of 52 and Ferrari reacted by pitting Vettel but Mercedes told Bottas to stay out and claim track position.

Thanks to a lot of massages and physiotherapy treatments, Vettel made it out for qualifying but Arrivabene said that Vettel was still suffering with pain on Sunday morning in the build up to the Grand Prix itself.

"I was able to get the auto more under control and the pace started to pick up".

It continues a run of poor performance - at the hands of the team rather than driver.

Sebastian Vettel's involvement in the final practice session for the British Grand Prix was limited by a neck complaint.

Marcus Ericsson had a high-speed crash on lap 33, which brought out a safety vehicle. It seemed as though Vettel would not be able to push past the Mercedes. This was F1 hokey cokey, Carlos Sainz and Romain Grosjean coming together around Copse to trigger an immediate return of the flashing light. Kimi had a good start, we have the telemetry data, so he found himself immediately on top of Hamilton.

Despite the ill feeling towards Ferrari over the nature of the Raikkonen hit, and the one taken by Bottas in Austria at Vettel's hands, to Hamilton it felt like a win.

Djokovic will need all that belief, however, as he has not faced anything yet at Wimbledon of the level of Nadal. So far the four matches have been really, really good for me'. "Keep on going, you can do this".

With five laps remaining, Bottas lost his rear through Brookland's and Vettel was through. The team should have opted to pit the Finn under the first safety auto and this would have guaranteed a facile second place.

"It was hard fighting guys with fresher tyres and in a flawless world I would have had brand new tyres but it wasn't that kind of day for me". "I don't think there was an intention and l think it's unnecessary to even go there". "I'm not anxious. Also, the speed tomorrow is less than in quali, because you have more fuel and you'll be a bit slower so it's going to be OK".

Hamilton was upset post-race with the contact from Raikkonen.

"Interesting tactics from this side, but we'll do what we can to fight them", the Brit said.

Finland's Raikkonen, who was handed a 10-second penalty before finishing third, admitted he had made a mistake, while Vettel said it is "quite silly" to think there was anything deliberate. "I guess I wanted to give a boost to England", he said.

Arrivabene says he was anxious about Vettel's pain, but then praised the German's commitment.

At the restart, Hamilton was under pressure from Verstappen but kept the Red Bull at bay as Raikkonen then passed the Dutchman down the Wellington Straight before Max hit back around the outside of Luffield and held on through Copse in an epic fight.
