Keeping Bottas looks a 'no-brainer', says Wolff

Johnnie Parks | 17 July, 2017, 16:39

The next round of the championship is the Hungarian Grand Prix on July 30.

Lewis Hamilton was comfortably quickest around the Silverstone track as he secured his fifth British GP pole position.

Hamilton easily converted his 67th career pole position into a 57th victory ahead as Australia's Daniel Ricciardo powered his way through the field to finish fifth after starting from 19th on the grid.

Valtteri Bottas finished in second place and was able to bounce back from ninth on the grid.

When asked about whether he'll win the championship by Hollywood star Owen Wilson, who was promoting his movie Cars 3, on the podium, Hamilton joked: "That's the plan. and then I want to be in Cars 4".

Vettel eventually finished the race seventh, which meant that his lead in the championship has been cut down to one single point.

Keeping Valtteri Bottas at Mercedes next season looks an obvious decision but the Formula One champions need to consider their long term options, team boss Toto Wolff said after the Finn shone in Sunday's British Grand Prix.

FIA rules dictate that a gearbox must last six consecutive events, but if a driver does not finish a race, they are allowed to fit a fresh unit for their next event. We didn't get past Max [Verstappen, who passed Vettel at the start], we did it with the pit stop, and then I think it was looking like P3/P4.

Dixon third fastest in Toronto practice
Yeah, like I mentioned before, the difficulties we had previous year especially in Toronto , they were pretty significant. Pagenaud said that the Toronto track's difficulty makes it the most important place to qualify well.


"I always try to save the best until last".

"I just felt like the whole race I was overtaking cars and I hope the fans enjoyed it", Ricciardo said.

Red Bull's Horner reckons the Mercedes are interested in employing Ferrari's lead driver in their auto.

"I'm really proud and I have to really take it back again to the incredible dedication from my family, my dad", he added.

Hamilton led the whole race, but from the start Verstappen managed to get the jump on Vettel for fourth, after which, on lap two, Kvyat and Sainz had a coming together leading to Sainz's retirement and a safety vehicle.

"I was pretty sure the tires would be fine".

"I have more poles than most", said the Briton, who is now one off Michael Schumacher's all-time record of 68 after Saturday's pole.

Verstappen was involved in an amusing moment of team radio when his engineer warned him about yellow caution flags at Turn Seven, only for Verstappen, who had just run wide at the corner, to reply: "Yes, because of me".
