Mercedes qualifying pace a gamechanger — Sebastian Vettel

18 Julio 2017, 08:17 | Cornelio Vivanco

Raikkonen hung onto third, with Vettel falling back to seventh.

In the short span of a lap, Hamilton did his best to pull away from the pack but it would all come undone on a few moments later.

Hulkenburg is followed by the Force Indias of Perez and Ocon, a surprising ninth for Vandoorne in the McLaren, and Grosjean in the Haas makes up the top ten. Ricciardo made an incredible recovery, after starting from the 19th position due to a grid penalty for engine components and gearbox changes. Valtteri Bottas is trying to get into the mix with his 154 points.

Red Bull's Max Verstappen finished fourth, ending a run of retirements, with Australian team mate Daniel Ricciardo fifth after fighting through the field.

As mentioned, Vettel still leads the Drivers' Championship, with 177 points.

Sebastian Vettel insists nobody is to blame for Ferrari's late puncture nightmare at the British Grand Prix and says the result is far from a disaster for his title ambitions. With just three laps remaining, Kimi Raikkonen's third-place came under threat when he was forced to pit after his tire gave way.

Mercedes boss Wolff was quick to dampen down rumours that Hamilton could be heading to Ferrari at the end of the season and that having a German in a German car as his replacement was an ideal scenario.

Afterwards, back from the crowd's embrace, he spoke eloquently about just what the day had meant to him. Ferrari's Kimi Räikkönen claimed the third podium spot after crossing the finish line 36.570 seconds behind the winner.

The first lap drama was between the two Toro Rosso's of Carlos Sainz and Daniil Kyvat which we have seen a several times this season. Nico Hulkenberg secured sixth for Renault ahead of the Ferrari of Sebastian Vettel.

A fourth straight pole for Hamilton at his home event comes as a big boost as he trails Vettel by 20 points in the driver standings. The record-breaking Formula One driver was put into a medically induced coma and underwent two life-saving operations at Grenoble Hospital. If you don't know my preparations are on point by now you never will.

Hamilton, 32 and now in his 11th campaign, was pushed on whether his remarks meant he might not be on the grid next year.

"It's going to be a close race, I think", said Hamilton.
