Silverstone held the very first F1 race back in 1950, and though in later years hosting duties were shared with Aintree and Brands Hatch, today Silverstone remains the British Grand Prix's official home. It marked the second grand prix in succession in which a Mercedes driver has been penalised for a gearbox change. He started only eighth before he recovered to finish fourth.

The transparent safety device, which sits in front of the driver, was attached to Vettel's Ferrari during opening practice for the British Grand Prix.

Cape Town - Despite falling 20 points behind Sebastian Vettel in the title race, Mercedes are adamant Lewis Hamilton is "still right" in the fight.

Bottas continues to apply the pressure to Hamilton, though.


What are the driver standings?

The three-time world champion later asked Mercedes to check for damage but the team confirmed he had escaped the moment with just a "a little bit of tatiness" on the floor of his auto. Nico Rosberg had started this winning streak for the team Mercedes winning the race in 2013.

"I've tried to prepare the best that I can by being very relaxed over the past few days", said Hamilton, who slipped 20 points adrift of the four-time champion at last weekend's Austrian Grand Prix where he started eighth on the grid, thanks to a five-place penalty for an unscheduled gearbox change on his Mercedes vehicle. "I didn't do it last weekend".

"I would think he's got (Mercedes team boss) Toto (Wolff) in his ear trying to say extend for a year and then he's probably got Ferrari saying it's three years or nothing", added the Briton.


All eyes were on Vettel's Ferrari in the morning session as the German tried out the "shield" cockpit protection system that involves a wraparound windscreen that aims to protect drivers' heads from flying debris and loose wheels. "We just need to work as normal and try and make improvements for tomorrow".

Their struggles meant Red Bull capitalised, with Verstappen and the in-form Daniel Ricciardo clearly the best of the rest early in the session. The quick times were all set on super-soft tyres before a band of light rain swept across the circuit and put an end to meaningful qualifying simulation runs.

Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo will face a challenge to extend his streak of podium finishes after suffering a loss of power on his vehicle early in Q1, resigning him to last place, with his misery only compounded by a grid penalty for a gearbox change.
