Not many drivers can do that.

Sebastian Vettel is leading the way after nine rounds of the 2018 season, with 146 points including three first place finishes.

"Magnussen tried to hit me two times - in one and three", Alonso reported over the radio. But that's what the sport has developed into.

"As soon as we got the vehicle back that evening we had a fix designed and put into test-mode".

The Austrian penalty was imposed despite both Vettel and Sainz progressing to the final phase of qualifying without any difficulty.

Environment Canada issues heat warning for P.E.I
An extended heat warning issued by the city's medical officer of health on Sunday remains in effect. The number of heat-related deaths in Montreal was pegged at six on Tuesday.

"[We had] some overheating issues", said the Finn after Friday's running. Their published ruling emphasised that they had reviewed all alleged impeding incidents since the beginning of 2016 and their decision was consistent.

"The loads that you're putting through the tyre - this is when it really impresses me what the manufacturers are able to do with these tyres, because jheeze".

Hamilton was forced to retire from the Austrian Grand Prix but will be confident of overhauling his rival from Ferrari with 12 races still to go - starting with the British Grand Prix at Silverstone on Sunday. Hamilton reeled off two fastest laps, but it was asking too much as Mercedes' unbeaten four-year run in Austria, and his own race, came to an end when he pulled up on lap 64 after losing power.

Hamilton had already been on the back foot before he stopped, his vehicle suffering lost fuel pressure, after a glaring strategy error by Mercedes had cost him the lead.

"The spirit within the team is stronger than it's ever been", Hamilton said.

Sauber recorded is first double-points-finish since 2015 thanks to Charles Leclerc and Marcus Ericsson's ninth and 10th places. He said: "Position on the grid is proving more and more crucial because it is harder for us to overtake".

Like many other world class racing circuits, Silverstone's tarmac has been re-laid ahead of this year's race. "There's a great energy about the team". So, while it was a painful experience, it actually brought us closer. It's true that they are very, very strong around here and you'd expect them to be very strong tomorrow.

There was a strategy error on the part of the Mercedes team, who opted not to pit Hamilton during the Virtual Safety Car period that was necessitated by the fact that Bottas' car was beached at a slightly less and ideal spot. Neither driver is expected to incur any starting grid penalties in Sunday's race at Silverstone as a result of the mechanical problems in Austria. "We are immensely proud of the four-day spectacle Melbourne puts on on an honoured to raise the curtain on one of the world's most prestigious annual championships". Chief strategist James Vowles acknowledged the blunder, telling Hamilton that it was his mistake.

But Hamilton will also have his eyes on something else this weekend, that being the World Cup.

"So I don't believe there's a lot of lap time in having it open through Turn 1 especially as you may be compromised through Turns 3 and 4".
