Hamilton dedicates record pole to home fans at Silverstone

Improving car until end of year key to title – Vettel

Lewis Hamilton struggled to hide his disappointment on Sunday as he avoided a post-race interview and ignored one of his Ferrari rivals after finishing second to Sebastian Vettel in the British Grand Prix. In addition, it is also the landmark 50th pole of Hamilton's Mercedes career, secured in memorable fashion on home turf.

"I will not give up", said Hamilton after falling eight points behind race victor Vettel.

Indeed, Hamilton is bidding to move ahead of Jim Clark and Alain Prost to stand alone as the King of the British Grand Prix with his sixth win.

On a hot afternoon in central England, the four-time champion German clocked a best lap in one minute and 27.552 seconds to ease 0.187 seconds clear of the Briton. You get it right and you get it wrong.

"It was hard fighting guys with fresher tyres and in a ideal world I would have had brand new tyres but it wasn't that kind of day for me".

And Hamilton ranks the lap as one of his best, having been visibly emotional after climbing out of his vehicle on the grid after qualifying.

"I want to remind everyone that in China we had a situation between Vettel and Verstappen and nobody said anything, all fine".

In a Sky Sports online poll conducted after the Paul Ricard event, more than 70 per cent of respondents said Vettel had deserved a harsher sanction. I was shaking afterwards through the emotion and the adrenalin rush. I was shaking through the emotion, through the adrenaline rush was way above the limit that I had experienced before, which is kind of insane for my 76th.

'It is my 76th pole, but is so special and I am so happy.

"Only great teams can be as courageous as we were and fight back from a goal down against teams like England ", Mandzukic said. The country selected 11 host cities to be the venues for the matches of the 2018 World Cup and they are Moscow, St.

"I didn't leave anything on the table today".

Vettel he admitted he feared he would miss qualifying with a neck complaint, and though he went on to earn second on the grid he confessed to still being a little anxious going into the race.

"I don't know what happened but it (the neck) went a little bit stiff". Sleep will help, so I am not anxious'.

A few laps later, Bottas slid wide after relinquishing P3 to Kimi Raikkonen, paving the way for a podium finish for both Ferrari cars.

The Red Bull duo of Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo finished fifth and sixth.

Fernando Alonso's McLaren team are without racing director Eric Boullier for the first time since 2014 after he was forced to resign following their miserable start to the season.

Lance Stroll meanwhile made an early qualifying exit after losing control of his Williams - also on entry to Brooklands - and spinning into the gravel trap, forcing a brief red flag period as a result so that marshals could retrieve the FW41.

This spelt the end of Stroll's part in the action after just three minutes and he joined Hartley, who could not take part following his big crash in his Toro Rosso in third practice, without a time.
