F1: 2019 Australian GP Dates Announced; To Start A Week Earlier

Max Verstappen wins Austrian F1 as Mercedes ruins Lewis Hamilton's day, Sebastian Vettel takes title lead

"I don't know how much that is in weight, but it's tonnes of weight going through these tyres and through your body".

Naturally, Hamilton was none too pleased with the fact that Mercedes had scuppered his race strategy, but there was little to be done about it. The Red Bull went backward across the grass and hit the wall with the right front first, pitching the right rear into the wall and breaking the suspension.

There was trouble for another French driver as Pierre Gasly stopped with more than half an hour of the session remaining.

"I've already booked Sunday week as my day off and I'm keeping it free as I want to be in Russian Federation that day to support England", said Hamilton, who played football at school in Stevenage with England left-back Ashley Young.

Hamilton, victor for the past four years at Silverstone, had started the day by leading a Mercedes one-two in the sunny opening session.

"So we end up with a massive rule book which I think could have the header "We're not allowed to race", because that's sometimes how it feels".

Are US oil prices set for a test of $76?
Japan and Turkey also import significant amounts of Iranian oil , according to statistics from the U.S. Oil is in a new super cycle and these geopolitical events are going to keep supply tight.

Donning the red white and blue, will Hamilton strike gold this weekend at Silverstone? I just had to drive around the issue. This left Hamilton 7.7 seconds ahead of Verstappen when a Virtual Safety Car was deployed to allow for Bottas' car to be removed.

He added: "It's quite hard without knowing the intricacies of other teams, but the one thing you have to do as a team is win as a team and lose as a team, and that's why we don't often - or hardly at all - talk about individuals in success or failure, because that puts an unfair amount of scrutiny and pressure on that individual".

The 20-year-old came under pressure for a string of clashes early in the season in incidents that Red Bull team principal Christian Horner believes were not that different to Sunday's Austrian GP fight. 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.

A week on from their Austrian GP victory, Red Bull had a poor day - lacking speed, reliability and track time. I hope it is not a title decider, but I can't predict what is happening going forward. "It's how the sport should be in a sense, that you're squeezing more out of the cars and out of the drivers as well so I think it's not a bad thing".

"Quali will be low fuel so probably going to try it again tomorrow, but today I tried and it wasn't possible". We've had far, far more success than we've had failures and nobody is ideal. "What I can say is, from the experiences like we had last weekend, the team are very, very reactive".
