British GP: Mercedes target Lewis Hamilton F1 title Silverstone 'fightback'

Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton has gone quickest in first practice for the Austrian Grand Prix

"He was catching up".

"It has all the ingredients", he added.

The gap between the Finn and the German was 0.042 seconds after their first attempts, but neither was able to improve on their second laps when Romain Grosjean's Haas stopped on track, triggering yellow flags and neutralising the session.

In P1, Vettel clipped the kerb at turn one.

Vettel could only manage the fourth-fastest time in the morning before getting closer in free practice two, but he still could not match the man closest to him in the title race. The lap was not quite perfect, but good enough.

"When I go and look at the race pace, I was actually quickest so I actually had the strongest race.I don't think the points really reflect this".

As previously mentioned, Hamilton is the only one in the field with a win at this track, but that's due in large part because it only recently returned to the F1 rotation in 2014.

"It was important for him to take the points home even if for him it feels like a loss today".

After the huge highs of a maiden podium in Baku, it was back down to earth with a bang for Lance Stroll, who finished one behind teammate Massa in 18th, ahead of the Sauber's but behind Palmer's Renault in 16th.

"Keep an eye on the tyres, I'm a bit worried about them", Hamilton reported over team radio with seven laps remaining.

Ricciardo, who is fourth overall, clinched his fifth straight podium.

Meanwhile, Max Verstappen endured another failure to finish after a collision with Fernando Alonso and Daniil Kvyat on the first corner.

Haas are now just four points off Toro Rosso with Grosjean enjoying his and the team's best result this year.

The Finnish driver was later cleared by stewards of any wrongdoing, and defended his lightning start.

'I had a strong belief at the time that he jumped the start.

What did you make of the action in Austria? "For sure he went, but the lights weren't out", Ricciardo said. So I don't think you could say that they were quicker on the ultrasoft, we were quicker on the supersoft.

Kevin Magnussen qualified his Haas into Q2 but also damaged the suspension and had to retire to the pits so was unable to participate in that second session.

By lap 10 of 71, Hamilton was into fifth behind Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen and Ricciardo.

Bottas took his second career win, and of the season, from pole position.
