Without his overtake of Raikkonen, Verstappen never would've won

Verstappen went on to control the race once Mercedes' failure to pit Lewis Hamilton under the early virtual safety auto, caused by Hamilton's team-mate Valtteri Bottas's retirement from second place, cost the Briton track position later on.

Donning the red white and blue, will Hamilton strike gold this weekend at Silverstone?

"We try to do their magic, that's what we've tried in the last years", said Vettel.

Verstappen hit the front after Mercedes kept Hamilton out on track during a virtual safety auto period that followed Bottas's retirement, with the other contenders pitting for fresh tyres.

"As soon as we got the vehicle back that evening we had a fix designed and put into test-mode".

Hamilton's Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas said the new surface is "so bumpy that you actually get a bit of a headache" and said it is now the bumpiest race venue in F1.

After the race, Hamilton labelled it "the worst weekend I can remember for a long time", as his retirement followed an error by chief strategist James Vowles which had cost him the lead. So, while it was a painful experience, it actually brought us closer.

This also meant that Sebastian Vettel managed to move back into the lead of the championship, albeit with a slim one-point advantage over Lewis Hamilton. The speeds we're going now, the g-forces we're pulling through Copse, through Maggots and Becketts - you're flat-out, going all the way into Maggots. 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.

"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".

"The start of an F1 season, our Aussie superstar Daniel Ricciardo, a Supercars Championship round and so much off-track action - it's a must-attend event in 2019!" Hamilton insisted that they should have won the race. 'I hope it will be like that for the rest of the year. "I'm very grateful to be in a position to be able to fight for (the record) here at Silverstone, for the sixth time". I don't know if that's two or 10, or somewhere in-between.

"I think it's highly encouraging for Ferrari that they're in amongst the Mercedes" - Martin Brundle.

"I just drive the cars", said Alonso.

And on the battle with Ferrari, Hamilton admitted: "It's going to be very, very close this weekend, the Ferraris are really fast. He's a racer, he understands racing commitment and spirit and I think he's going to be a good leader for the future at McLaren".
