Max Verstappen wins the 2018 Austrian GP

Australian GP

"I mean, we're all managing, but if someone sticks [with DRS at T1] in qualifying, they're going to crash - so that's kind of why it's an unnecessary kind of danger".

"Nobody is ideal. It would be boring if that was the case", added Hamilton, 33, whose new £120million contract with Mercedes will not be announced this weekend.

A botched call from the pitwall saw him fail to pit along with his rivals causing him to lose the lead before a mechanical problem ensured he failed to finish a grand prix for the first time in two years.

But nevertheless, Hamilton's Mercedes team mate Valtteri Bottas said that it was tyres - as well as a very potent looking Ferrari - that were his main concern for Sunday's race.

"It's the same as every year really but the British Grand Prix is the most special in the sense of all the races that we get to do for me", said Hamilton in the Thursday press conference.

Vettel, who leads the Briton by a point in the championship after nine races, put in a lap of 1 minute 27.552 seconds in the afternoon to end the session 0.187 faster than his fellow-four-times world champion. "Immediately after the race, as soon as they got the vehicle back, I think that evening there was a fix that..."

"Austria was a hard weekend, we all wished it wasn't the way it was, but what doesn't kill you makes you stronger". This left Hamilton 7.7 seconds ahead of Verstappen when a Virtual Safety Car was deployed to allow for Bottas' car to be removed.

"Some of them, for sure, are easier than others". It's true that they are very, very strong around here and you'd expect them to be very strong tomorrow.

The Melbourne race has been held on the penultimate weekend of March for the last two years but has been moved forward, to give the event space either side of the Moomba Festival and the start of the Australia Football League season. Chief strategist James Vowles made a public apology to Hamilton over the radio during last Sunday's race.

A week on from their Austrian GP victory, Red Bull had a poor day - lacking speed, reliability and track time.

'Everyone in the team will feel a nervousness. "Look at how many wins I've had within this team". I can't predict what will happen but that's not getting in my way'. We have had far more success than failures. There's obviously talk of the historic number of wins but I'm grateful just to be fighting for a sixth win at Silverstone, I'm very privileged.

"I just drive the cars", said Alonso. "He's a racer, he understands racing commitment and spirit and I think he's going to be a good leader for the future at McLaren".
