Lewis Hamilton shatters more F1 records but misses British GP fans

Mercedes heats up at cooler Silverstone FP3

The Red Bull driver and his race crew believed they might have had a chance of victory as Hamilton and his Mercedes team-mate Valtteri Bottas both suffered tyre failures in the closing laps.

"In my mind I was thinking, 'How far is it to the end of the lap?'". I had a look at some tires from the second stint, and the level of wear is close to 100%, so we have to understand if this is the cause of the failure. So that's why we want to investigate not only the tyres with a failure, but all the tyres used in the last few laps of the race, to understand if we find any other cut or any other possible indication on what happened.

"I could hear the gap coming down from 19 [seconds] to 10 so I was giving it the full gas out of [corner] 15 down to 16 and then the thing wasn't stopping".

Becoming the first driver to claim seven pole positions at his home Grand Prix - beating the record of six he jointly held with his Brazilian hero Ayrton Senna - Hamilton also set a new track record for the current Silverstone layout. I don't think that was cleaned up.

"I really, really hope that in future, it is closer".

Red Bull seizes the opportunity to pit Verstappen for fresh tyres so he can attack for fastest lap, something which is rewarded with an extra point. Then they boxed me to go for the fastest lap.

"Oh my god, I have definitely never experienced anything like that on a last lap and my heart definitely probably almost stopped".

"Then of course Valtteri got a puncture".

NY Mets Can't Find Yoenis Cespedes, Never Reported To Ballpark
The news came three hours after the Mets released a statement saying Cespedes did not arrive for work and they couldn't reach him. Following the game, Van Wagenen said he was glad Cespedes was safe, "because there's a period of time where we weren't sure".

F1 races at Silverstone again next weekend using softer tire compounds - necessitating the need for a quick investigation - but with many teams trying to reach the end of the race after making an early pit stop under the safety auto, Isola says the tires were automatically less robust in the closing laps.

"That will give us more time before the anthem for various initiatives without a rush".

"So, I think we just have to be grateful for what we've benefited from Bottas, but [we] feel a little bit unlucky". But we've got our moment before the anthem to do that. But, congratulations to them.

The Brit admitted he was lucky to secure a third victory of the season which leaves him 30 points clear of Bottas at the top of the Drivers' Championship.

Ferrari's Charles Leclerc was promoted from fourth to the final podium spot by the late drama.

For the third race weekend on the trot Bottas was left frustrated by his small deficit to Hamilton, which would have resulted in a third straight defeat even before the hurt of losing 25 points to his nearest rival in the title fight.

Hamilton said: "Up until the last lap, everything was relatively smooth sailing". What can I say? I knew that at some stage, he was going to degrade, because I could see he wasn't managing in areas that he should.
