It is also 20 years since Jacques Villeneuve claimed the team's 100th win here at Silverstone, but the Canadian is not welcome in the team's motor home this week.

"After the race in Budapest I will think about it some more on the beach", Wolff smiled.

For once in 2017, everything ran like clockwork for Lewis Hamilton. The two have had similar run-ins before and this might not look good for the future of these two drivers in the Toro Rosso bull pen, as it is the second double retirement for the team.

Lewis Hamilton sent the Silverstone crowd wild with a storming lap to set pole position at the British Grand Prix by more than half a second. "I'll leave it to you".

Hamilton so often excels in the wet. Lap after lap, as the three-time champ blitzed around in the lead, he was treated to an ovation.

According to planners, the local economy would benefit by the sum of £477 million ($624 million/€545 million), creating 3,280 seasonal jobs.

A team spokesperson confirmed the likely sanction late Friday after a dominant Bottas had excelled during practice at Silverstone.

Hunter-Reay enjoyed a combative bout with polesitter Simon Pagenaud in the final stages, Pagenaud finally making the pass in the final few laps for fifth place.

Hamilton justified his decision to skip the London event by saying he needed a break, has his own vast social media following to connect with fans and conducts hospital visits that he complained don't generate as much coverage as this controversy.

Overall, it's surprisingly hard to pick who's got the edge for Sunday from FP2 so far.

"Very excited, could cut glass at the moment with these things".

Ferrari's weekend never took off. They always looked slower than Mercedes and only a grid penalty for Bottas for changing a gearbox denied the Silver Arrows a potential front row lockout.

Two-time winner of the British Grand Prix Jackie Stewart thinks the prospect of not having a British Grand Prix is unthinkable, from both a sporting and economic perspective.

It was a big ask, but he was confident that in the long game the tyre choice would pay off - he could do a long first stint on the softs, and then bolt on some pace by using the supersofts at the end.

With barely two laps remaining, a front-left puncture deprived Raikkonen of the runner-up slot, while an apparently identical issue cost Vettel a likely fourth place just a lap later.

He was then 9.5 seconds behind Hamilton, with some clear air ahead of him, but no immediate prospect of catching the Vettel/Verstappen battle.

It is currently hosting the World Para Athletics Championships.
