Formula One has gone too far with penalties - Vettel

Formula One has gone too far with penalties - Vettel

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

But Hamilton said he was relishing the challenge from Ferrari - and the evolving Silverstone circuit.

Verstappen hit the front after Mercedes kept Hamilton out on track during a virtual safety vehicle period that followed Bottas's retirement, with the other contenders pitting for fresh tyres.

"I'm not a fan of these penalties", he said. "Immediately after the race, as soon as they got the vehicle back, I think that evening there was a fix that..."

"We have thrown away the win", said Hamilton, with Vowles replying: "This is James, I have thrown away the win today", before the retirement made it immaterial.

The race hopes to improve on its 2018 four-day crowd of 295,000 next year.

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".

Vettel now has 146 points to Hamilton's 145 after nine rounds and with the Briton's home race at Silverstone next weekend. "They are obviously very capable people there, but our role if we get close enough will be to put pressure on, because we've seen that when you do put pressure on Mercedes mistakes do happen".

"We have got a bit of work on to make sure we are not taking undue risks with parts which might have had some consequential damage when the vehicle was shut down". Hamilton insisted that they should have won the race. It's just part of our sport.

Immediately, both Ferrari and Red Bull responded with double pit-stops for their drivers while Mercedes left Hamilton out - a tactical oversight that was to prove costly. Carlos said it was no problem and he completely understood, he was very chilled, and I still ended up with a penalty.

"I think it's highly encouraging for Ferrari that they're in amongst the Mercedes" - Martin Brundle.

McLaren driver Fernando Alonso told reporters separately that he trusted Brown 100 percent, although he had also had the same faith in Boullier. "Luckily I could manage it until the end of the race", Verstappen said.

And on the battle with Ferrari, Hamilton admitted: "It's going to be very, very close this weekend, the Ferraris are really fast".

"It would be great to take the lead back from Seb here, but I am really grateful to be in a position to fight for a win at Silverstone for a sixth time".
