Kimi Raikkonen - My mistake cost pole position at Silverstone

Sebastian Vettel has been perceived as Ferrari's lead driver since he joined the team in 2015, alongside Raikkonen, and has taken all 11 of the squad's wins in that period.

Zak Brown has said that McLaren has not yet opened contract talks with former team driver Kimi Raikkonen.

Other than Hamilton, the driver to make the biggest splash on his arrival at the circuit was Renault's Nico Hulkenburg, who rode around the track on a bicycle.

"But I say "we hope not" because every time a auto stops in an uncontrolled way where a failure happens and systems are shut down in a way which is unusual, we can't be completely sure until we have done all the necessary checks that all the bits of the vehicle which are sealed and which do attract penalties weren't affected".

"I would not know where the difference is", Vettel said.


It is expected that Ferrari will replace the 38-year-old with Sauber youngster Charles Leclerc for 2019.

Hamilton is a point behind in leader Vettel in the title race but is seeking a record sixth British GP win on Sunday.

Hamilton and Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas both did not finish the race.

"Certainly Kimi is a world champion and he won many races for us". "The difference is so small, I think I just drove the same lap. But we're aiming for the top, for sure". Maybe ten years ago it was more likely that every team, every auto, would stop at some point in a race but we've seen in the last few years that's very unlikely that it will happen. "Apart from that it hasn't been too bad and we try to keep it up and do the best we can and, hopefully, keep scoring good points".
