Sebastian Vettel edges F1 title rival Lewis Hamilton in British GP FP2

Hamilton will be in search of a record sixth British Grand Prix victory Sunday - he's now tied with five along with Jim Clark and Alain Prost.

Second in the standings by just a point, the championship lead has bounced between Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel repeatedly during the opening nine races of the season.

It would also be his fifth consecutive win at the Northamptonshire track.

"Obviously I was pretty happy with the first run in Q3 and then we had a little bit more in sector three and bits around the track, which I think I got right on the second attempt, but I seemed to lose a little bit down the straights". 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. "I'm not anxious [for the race] because the speed will be less than qualy". "So, yeah, I can't tell you how happy I am, happy for the fans, and I hope that I can deliver for them tomorrow".

Australian Daniel Ricciardo and Kimi Raikkonen traded fourth and fifth places while Max Verstappen, victor in Austria for Red Bull, was sixth in the morning but crashed after lunch without setting a time.

We can not be sure but we do know that despite missing out to Mercedes for the third race in a row, Ferrari will be much happier with their plight and will pose a significant threat to Hamilton in the race.

U.S. Service Member Killed In 'Apparent Insider Attack' In Afghanistan
The incident marks the first combat fatality for the USA military in Afghanistan since April 30, and the second there this year. Army Sgt. 1st Class Mihail Golin, 34, was killed in a firefight with ISIS fighters in eastern Afghanistan on January 1.

"The track is the fastest it has ever been; we're flat out through Copse, and Turn One and through Turn Two with the DRS - it's insane how fast it is". He will line-up on pole for the 76th time in his career as he looks to claim a record sixth victory at the British Grand Prix.

Both Mercedes drivers failed to finish in Austria due to team errors, and Hamilton was grateful the problems they had in Spielberg have apparently been overcome.

He will start the race at Silverstone from second on the grid after missing out on pole to Lewis Hamilton by less than half a tenth of a second. The Russian was at least able to drive back to the pit lane, where Williams deputy team principal Claire Harris held her head in her hands.

The Ferrari driver missed out on pole position by just 0.044s, but admitted that he was relieved to have even been taking part in the first place. The New Zealander was fortunate to emerge unhurt after losing his front left wheel due to a suspected suspension failure, pitching the auto off at speed in a shower of sparks and dust before slamming into the barriers.

Sunday's race is the last one in F1's inaugural triple-header after the Austrian and French GPs over the previous weekends.
