Four-time world champion Hamilton complained: "This track is the bumpiest I've ever been on". And then afterwards I was just. Also, Stowe is just... with the headwind that we have there, it's incredible how fast it is. Sleep will help, so I am not anxious'.

Mercedes will not adopt a cautious approach to race strategy at the British Grand Prix despite its strategy error in Austria, according to team boss Toto Wolff. This has been a strong circuit for me for years, as you can see and my job is try to make the difference.

Vettel leads Hamilton by one point after nine of 21 races thanks to the Briton's misfortune in Austria.

"These experiences that we have been having and how we've been handling them have really united us more than any year".

"I think it's, for me, with the whole build-up, with the whole intensity, with the whole spur-of-the-moment thing, knowing how close we were, for me it feels like one of the best laps that I've been able to produce".

"I think for Lewis, if he gets a good getaway, then it's normally more straightforward, but we'll see".

Hamilton had been behind Sebastian Vettel after his first run in Q3 and admitted that he had to pull out all the stops with his final flying lap. "I'm so grateful for the support because without you guys I wouldn't have been able to do it".

With the forecast predicting one of the hottest British Grands Prix in recent memory, managing tyre degradation is going to be key to strategy at SIlverstone.

"It's going to be very, very close this weekend". We try to be proactive but it's great to be able to be reactive as well and we have been making a lot of improvements to the vehicle as well - my feeling for the auto, the understanding that just naturally grows for a driver throughout the year and for a team you grow more aware of the tires and the strengths and weaknesses of the package you have. We had to call it a bit earlier this morning than I wanted but yeah, it was fine in qualifying.

Speaking at the subsequent press conference he opened up as to why that lap, nearly more than any other, meant so much to him.

"So, to push over the limit just a little bit more, without losing it is one of the toughest positions to put the auto".
