Is Ferrari Sabotaging Mercedes in Formula 1?

Is Ferrari Sabotaging Mercedes in Formula 1?

Lewis commented, "It was a tough situation to be in, I just kept my head down, I knew that I had to fight with everything I had".

All of which sounded like anguished moans of the vanquished to Vettel, who with victory extended his championship lead to eight points.

Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff also wondered whether the incident that sent Hamilton into a spin before he fought back to second at the finish, had been deliberate or simply a sign of incompetence.

But spurred on by a record 140,000 race-day crowd, the home favourite drove superbly to race back to second place and said on Twitter afterwards he "used every ounce of energy fighting up the grid".

A furious Hamilton and his Mercedes team believed Raikkonen may have crashed into him on goal to afford Sebastian Vettel free reign at the front of the field.

"Really, really pleased with the result" remarked race victor Vettel, "especially here, a track that we've struggled at in the past, it was nice to see that we were strong all weekend and able to fight for the win, obviously we got the lead back in the end, it felt very satisfying".

A seething Hamilton labelled the shunt from the Finn as "interesting tactics" in a post-race jibe at Mercedes' rivals but, in a now deleted Instagram story post, Raikkonen's wife made her feelings clear on the issue.

Therefore, he was at least theoretically vulnerable to "the Snap ", which reduced half of the MCU's characters to dust. There's still plenty of time to subscribe to the Thanos Did Nothing Wrong subreddit to see if you make the cut or not.

"But it was crucial, it wasn't easy, they seemed to be very strong on the straights, the mid part of the straights but yeah, obviously with DRS and a tow, I was a bit stronger at the end of the straights so it worked".

"The most important problem for Seb was his neck", the Scuderia team principal told Sky Sports F1 after the race.

Referencing the whack taken by his Mercedes team-mate, Valterri Bottas, at the hands of Vettel in France a fortnight ago, Hamilton, who recovered brilliantly to finish second, offered this assessment: "All l would say is that it's two races in which a Ferrari has taken out a Mercedes". It is a lot of points Valtteri and I have lost in those incidents.

Emotions spilled over as Hamilton and Mercedes accused Vettel's Ferrari team of effectively cheating their way to victory.

It was Hamilton's sixth pole at the Silverstone Circuit and his fourth of the 2018 season. But after yesterday's very close qualifying session, it was encouraging to see the underlying pace of the vehicle - and that we had better tyre usage than our competitors. I think I surprised him. "Everybody brings updates to every race and there is never a silver bullet that provides you three tenths or four tenths, which was the difference between us and Ferrari a year ago. I deserved it", he added of the penalty.

Here's what we learnt from the F1 British GP.
