Valtteri Bottas Hit With Five-Grid-Spot Penalty for British Grand Prix

The shock result of the weekend was the Haas team

The shock result of the weekend was the Haas team

Lewis Hamilton found it "surreal" to have taken his fifth pole position for the British Grand Prix in qualifying at Silverstone on Saturday, matching Jim Clark's 50-year-old record. Having gone purple and then green through the first two sectors, Hamilton had a twitch at Chapel before going wide at the corner, compromising his lap.

Mercedes have triple world champion Lewis Hamilton under contract for next year while Finland's Valtteri Bottas joined in January with no guarantee beyond 2017. "Mercedes looks quick but it's not a surprise". Kimi Raikkonen was the man placed as best of the rest, though he hit yellow flags in his final sector and had to lift, meaning it is unlikely he extracted the maximum from his auto. There were no major dramas during the session save for a few spins.

His absence and the backlash it prompted from some fans and sections of the British media was an unexpected slice of luck for rival Vettel, who was widely expected to be represented as the villain of the traditional "soap opera" coverage of the F1 race weekend.

Renault's pace has been boosted by a new floor introduced this weekend and it put them ahead of Red Bull, with Daniel Ricciardo sixth quickest 0.132secs slower than Hulkenberg. His teammate of the time, Felipe Massa, had also been ruled out of the points finishing in 11th position after being jumped from the 12th place on the starting grid.

Johnny Cueto Could Miss Next Start
Padres: RF Hunter Renfroe was placed on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to Monday, with a strained neck. It depends on how I feel. " I think the best thing for me to do is take some time off ", says Cueto.

Hamilton's absence - the Briton was taking a break in Greece - was a talking point ahead of a race that he has won for the past three years, and four times in all.

There was some controversy when Grosjean appeared to complain Hamilton had blocked him.

He said the new Red Bull upgrades were coming at the right time.

If he does, it will also hand Ferrari their first Silverstone win since Fernando Alonso triumphed for the Italian squad in 2011. He was still just 0.047 seconds slower than Bottas.

The Ferrari drivers could not beat that even though they were on the super soft Pirellis. But Vettel was unable to get close enough in the final stages, allowing Bottas to cross the line 0.6 seconds clear. Sergio Perez finished behind in the other Force India, though the local team often sees an upturn in performance on Saturdays.

Hamilton was able to rise to fifth and begin to hound Kimi Raikkonen, only for Mercedes to bring him in earlier than planned at the end of lap 32. Turn 13 (the final right-hander) is a fantastic corner because it is very bumpy, a lot of compression on the tyres and it is all about the exit.

Out with Ricciardo went rookie Lance Stroll, 16th for Williams, Kevin Magnussen of Haas, Pascal Wehrlein and his Sauber team-mate Marcus Ericsson.
