Hamilton fears Ferrari consistency — Formula One

Though Hamilton halved Vettel's championship lead to seven points with his Spa win, he felt the Ferrari was the quicker car in the race and is a more consistent and predictable machine than his Mercedes.

After being struck down by illness at the previous race in Hungary four weeks ago, Massa was passed fit to race by the FIA's doctors on Wednesday. Yet, the Spa-Francorchamps course was supposed to be one which suited Mercedes, and while Hamilton won, he will no doubt be alarmed as to how hard-fought his victory actually was.

The stage is therefore set for a titanic battle between the two title rivals in the race, which Vettel starts 14 points ahead of Hamilton. Since this is the first year under new regulations in-season development was always going to be key and with the gap between the two teams so slender it is now of paramount importance for the remaining races.

The latest move came in July, when the FIA informed teams that any new engine introduced from the Italian GP would be allowed a maximum consumption of 0.9 litres of oil per 100km. His exasperation was understandable - it is the sixth time this season he has failed to finish the race, and some 80,000 Dutch fans had crossed the border to cheer him on. That might however, be easier said than done.

Ron's Tire Inc. opened a new store in Idaho Falls, Idaho, and its inventory features much more than tires.

Little is known of Schumacher's condition after he suffered severe head injuries following a skiing accident more than three years ago. But if that's easy to change we would do it. Perez was classified in P17 - but parked it with two laps to go.

Despite setting his best time on the slowest tyre compound available, the soft, Hamilton was just 0.053s adrift of pacesetter Raikkonen in second place despite the Ferrari running the fastest tyre on offer, the ultrasoft.

"But in the last race [in Hungary] qualifying trim was not good, and in the race I was very strong". He's supposed to be a professional driver but he did not show that today.

The next round at Monza, another power circuit, should favour Mercedes who brought an upgraded engine to Spa, but Hamilton, who now has five wins this season, is expecting Ferrari to be strong at their home grand prix. The Briton then looked reasonably comfortable until a late safety car period - after Force India duo Sergio Perez and Esteban Ocon again clashed - closed up the pack. To hear the message that Ross just gave I have to say a big thank you.

The driver for the small, family-run team had finally captured a checkered flag for the first time in 256 Xfinity Series races.

"I can't believe this", Verstappen said.

"It was a good day". To equal your pole position record is a dream come true.

Hamilton's comments apart, he drove as perhaps nobody else could in defending his position, as Vettel planted the nose of his Ferrari like a red poker behind him. Here's a look at the event, held at the store on Raeford Road in Fayetteville, N.C.

Meanwhile, Red Bull Racing's Daniel Ricciardo managed to snatch the final spot on the podium, jumping the second Mercedes of Valtteri Bottas on the re-start. The 627 part numbers cover over 60,000 applications.
