Hamilton 'owned' qualifying - Vettel

17 Julio 2017, 04:25 | Faron Santos

With teammate Lewis Hamilton going wire-to-wire for victory, Bottas helped complete a flawless weekend for Mercedes that saw it top every session and leave with maximum points.

The top ten at the final classification was; Hamilton, Bottas, Raikkonen, Verstappen, Riccciardo, Hulkenberg, Vettel, the Force India-Mercedes cars of Esteban Ocon and Sergio Perez and Williams-Mercedes' Felipe Massa. "It's just one of those things", said the German. After some expletives being shouted at in the Ferrari team radio, Raikkonen can swap his tires and rejoin in fourth place behind teammate Vettel. "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. But with this auto and the speed we are able to carry through the corners, it's just phenomenal, it's like the greatest roller-coaster ride ever", Hamilton said.

The Toro Rossos of Carlos Sainz and Daniil Kvyat collided on lap two, with the Spaniard shunted out and the safety vehicle making an appearance for three laps. However he was cleared, with the stewards declaring that he would not face a penalty for the incident. "I had quite a big gap to close".


For Valterri, Ferrari's bad luck was a boon as he had started the race ninth due to a five-place grid penalty for a gearbox change, but was seen charging up the grid.

Vettel, whose brakes were smoking before the start, lost third to Red Bull's Max Verstappen.

For the larger part of the grand prix, Raikkonen was able to live up to his nickname "The Iceman" as once Lewis got rid of him off the line he was running a pretty easy race in second.


He finally came in at the end of lap 32 and rejoined fourth behind the Ferraris on fresh super-soft tyres.

Raikkonen's issue was the result of the tread of his tyre coming away - with the tyre not actually losing any air as he returned to the pits.

With Bottas going long on softs and then switching to supersofts, there was nothing Vettel could do to hold off the Mercedes driver, who moved ahead at Stowe on lap 43. Vettel, already enduring a hard afternoon, had been due to cross the line fourth until a punctured front left tyre two laps from the end forced the German to pit, dropping him down to seventh at the flag.
