Horner: Mercedes' apology to Hamilton was 'bizarre'

Max Verstappen

"I don't know how much that is in weight, but it's tonnes of weight going through these tyres and through your body".

"Nobody is flawless. It would be boring if that was the case", added Hamilton, 33, whose new £120million contract with Mercedes will not be announced this weekend. But has the first double retirement for reliability reasons since the 1955 Italian Grand Prix had an affect on the team or is it simply back to business as usual this week?

There was trouble for another French driver as Pierre Gasly stopped with more than half an hour of the session remaining.

Hamilton said during an earlier news conference at Silverstone: "We always come to the grand prix with some epic sport surrounding it, be it Wimbledon or whatever".

Second in the standings by just a point, the championship lead has bounced between Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel repeatedly during the opening nine races of the season. "Immediately after the race, as soon as they got the auto back, I think that evening there was a fix that..."

'Austria was a hard weekend, ' said Hamilton.

'I don't think it's a title decider but I can't predict what will happen. Before being sidelined by a fuel pressure problem, he had already dropped from first to fourth when Mercedes failed to bring him in for an immediate pitstop after the virtual safety vehicle had been deployed.

"I think that if you look at Mercedes' history, the team is basically what Ross [Brawn] put in place several years ago". It's true that they are very, very strong around here and you'd expect them to be very strong tomorrow. Neither driver is expected to incur any starting grid penalties in Sunday's race at Silverstone as a result of the mechanical problems in Austria.

"It was incredible to win at the Red Bull Ring with so many Dutch fans here".

"We have got a bit of work on to make sure we are not taking undue risks with parts which might have had some consequential damage when the vehicle was shut down". Chief strategist James Vowles made a public apology to Hamilton over the radio during last Sunday's race.

'Everyone in the team will feel a nervousness. We've had far, far more success than we've had failures and nobody is flawless.

"Probably more like somewhere in-between, but I don't want to get into predictions". "What I can say is, from the experiences like we had last weekend, the team are very, very reactive".

"He'd got enough in the tank to see off the challenge to the end of the race".

"It would be great to take the lead back from Seb here, but I am really grateful to be in a position to fight for a win at Silverstone for a sixth time".
