Kimi Raikkonen - My mistake cost pole position at Silverstone

Lewis Hamilton

"So I was nervous I had lost part of my floor or something because the vehicle was moving for unknown reasons, but then it started to get better and better, after some tweaks to the settings".

Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen will line up third with Hamilton's Finnish teammate Valtteri Bottas completing the second row of the grid.

Hamilton, from his record 76th pole, appeared bogged down as he responded and was instantly in a scrap for third with Raikkonen, who collided with the Briton under braking into Turn Three.

Vettel strengthens his stranglehold on the championship, and will now head to his home race in Germany in a fortnight's time with an eight-point advantage.

The Sauber driver emerged unscathed, but the safety vehicle was sent out.

Hamilton was on a charge from the first lap, back up to seventh after nine laps but still 26 seconds behind his fellow four-times world champion.

Vettel and Raikkonen pitted but Mercedes kept their drivers out, assuring Hamilton that he was "the fastest guy by miles" with everything to play for on tires that would last the distance.

Bolton Claims US Has Plan to Disarm North Korea Within a Year
I mentioned last week that satellite analysis showed that North Koreans were building up their nuclear research facility. NBC News and the Washington Post reported that North Korean attempts to hide nuclear work.

"Obviously it's a racing incident and I can't see behind me".

"My team did an incredible job this weekend", said Hamilton, when he was, eventually, interviewed on the podium and after the two Ferrari men had departed. "I will not give up, believe me, I will not give up". But the important thing is that we had a good Friday, everything we put on the auto seemed to work, and I felt happy with the balance of the vehicle straight away and managed to find a good rhythm from the beginning.

"It was my mistake".

"I would struggle to be that precise in order to take someone out", he added.

"We've just got to try to position ourselves better so we are not exposed to the red cars because who knows whether that's going to happen again".

Elsewhere, solid drives from Fernando Alonso and Nico Hulkenberg pushed them level with Force India in the points table.

Championship leader Sebastian Vettel was third fastest for Ferrari, followed by Australian Daniel Ricciardo for Red Bull, Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen and Austrian GP victor Max Verstappen, racing for Red Bull. An early pit stop on the cards?
