Lewis Hamilton admits Sunday's race is a must-win — British Grand Prix

15 Julio 2017, 02:51 | Bibiana Flor

Hamilton's frustration at FIA decision to allow Vettel to walk away with only a stern warning for that 'road-rage' incident was compounded when he suffered a five-place grid penalty for an unauthorised gearbox change in Austria when Vettel finished second.

The Mayor's office has been made aware, but pointed out that any request would need to come from the Formula One Group. The British driver was also "raging" after discovering team principal Toto Wolff had attended Vettel's 30th birthday party.

It's the latest attempt by new F1 owner Liberty Media to raise the profile of the sport, and engage more directly with the public. Coincidentally, the same odds as legend Fernando Alonso.

"There is no number to it. There is always a compromise between corner speed and straight-line speed, and that is best found in the simulations before the race weekend".

But it does make backing Bottas at [7.6] far better value because while the media circus will inevitably focus on Lewis, the "second driver" will just carry on doing what he's done all season - improving with each race. A few laps later, the Brit was now leading the race by five seconds. On the face of it he seems quite passive and boring out of the car, but there is passion and anger boiling under the surface. The Mercedes drivers were comfortably quicker than the rest of the drivers who could not get within half a second despite using the super softs. The other compounds were the super soft and medium.

Mercedes then are looking very strong here, with Ferrari struggling, at least initially.

Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen was third, 0.332secs behind Bottas, 0.128secs ahead of team-mate Sebastian Vettel. His session also included a spin in the final sector which compromised the end of Raikkonen's lap. "Our plans as long as we're running F1 is to have a race in the UK", he said. In Baku, a freak problem with his headrest required an extra visit to the pits to have it re-secured.

Lewis Hamilton admits he was unaware of British fans' frustrations after he failed to turn up for Formula One's spectacular London parade on Wednesday night.

Even if Sunday's race hosts a full capacity crowd, it is reported that the Northamptonshire circuit is still poised to lose £4 million.

As things stand there will be no race in Britain following 2019, but London is emerging as a potential option.

"I will give everything to shine as much light and raise the flag in the best way I can". The modern machinery was pretty impressive, but a 1990s McLaren MP4/6 raced by F1 legend Ayrton Senna arguably stole the show.

With a win worth 25 points, Hamilton could conceivably take the lead of the championship this weekend if Vettel runs into serious trouble.

The session ended with Bottas retaining the top spot with the lap he ran earlier on the supersofts.

Lewis Hamilton has described his current title battle with Sebastian Vettel as the "most intense" period of his entire racing career.
