"I'm not a fan of these penalties", he said.

After Friday's running, Hamilton couldn't hide his enthusiasm for the experience of manhandling his Mercedes W09 around the historic Silverstone circuit.

Ahead, Verstappen, who has received criticism aplenty for the errors that he's made over the course of the 2018 season, took his first win of the year. He accepted, however, that drivers should carry some of the blame for complaining in the past of inconsistencies in stewards' decisions which had led to a more rigid approach.

"But I say "we hope not" because every time a auto stops in an uncontrolled way where a failure happens and systems are shut down in a way which is unusual, we can't be completely sure until we have done all the necessary checks that all the bits of the vehicle which are sealed and which do attract penalties weren't affected".

"Everything we put on the auto seemed to work", said Sebastian Vettel after setting the fastest time of Practice Two in a Ferrari vehicle fitted with a new floor. In trying to explain how he had lost the lead of the race, Mercedes head strategist James Vowles apologised twice to Hamilton over team radio, which was broadcast publically across television channels.

"In my point of view motorsport is not black and white", said Vettel, who collected a three-place grid penalty in Austria last weekend for impeding Renault's Carlos Sainz in the second phase of qualifying, told reporters at the British Grand Prix. "Immediately after the race, as soon as they got the auto back, I think that evening there was a fix that..."

Investigators' emails to US Rep. Jordan went to bad address
Mike DiSabato, one of the former wrestlers who's come forward with the accusations, has called Jordan a "liar" over his denials . Jordan in an interview Friday. "But at the end of the day, he is absolutely lying if he says he doesn't know what was going on".

"We've always said that we have very clear rules and that's what we go by since I've been in this team", he said. The next race will be held at Silverstone on July 8, 2018.

'Everyone in the team will feel a nervousness. Look at how many wins I have had at this team.

Christian Horner, the Red Bull team principal has been critical of the move and believes he would never single out an employee for such a misjudgment.

"My view is that in my role as team principal you are here to protect your workforce to make sure they are represented in the best possible way". I hope it is not a title decider, but I can't predict what is happening going forward. We have had far more success than failures. I think we have to be very honest with ourselves and our fans that this is going to be a journey.
