Hamilton retains pole, cleared over block

There are some that moan all the time- Mercedes boss rebuffs fuming Grosjean Hamilton retains pole, cleared over block

Silverstone has been regarded as the "Home of British Motor Racing" since hosting its first Grand Prix in 1948.

That left Vettel back in third, between Ferrari team-mate Kimi Raikkonen and the second Mercedes of Valtteri Bottas, and 0.756s from Hamilton's pole. This morning we had difficulties with the balance to start with, but overall I think we improved the auto at the end of the session.

Vettel completed a single installation lap with the Shield attached to his Ferrari before asking for it to be removed when he returned to the pits.

His performance was the ideal riposte to criticisms of his decision to miss the F1 demonstration in London on Wednesday.

"I tried it this morning and I got a bit dizzy", Vettel, who leads Lewis Hamilton in the championship standings by 20 points, and was the first driver to trial the new device, said.

"Michael Schumacher was very much his idol and I think what we you see sometimes is that killer instinct of "I want to win" - sometimes at all costs".

"I need to make sure I do it for these guys", he added pointing to the crowd on the pit straight.

Hamilton was investigated by the officials after claiming Silverstone pole position as Haas driver Grosjean claimed he had been held up by the Mercedes early in Q3.

On Thursday, when he faced reporters at Silverstone, Hamilton said he hadn't heard about the booing.

"He's got this huge desire within him, the records mean a lot to him", said the Red Bull boss.

"And then Maggotts and Becketts; that section is on fire - Turn 10 is always flat, 11 has been flat for years, 12, from 2007 to now, you were letting off later and later and now you are on the gas into 12". He did the business last week and if he qualifies, well he has a right chance.

Max Verstappen was fifth, 0.6 seconds slower than Bottas, with Australian Daniel Ricciardo sixth in the order.

Hulkenberg's team-mate Jolyon Palmer was down in 14th place, almost a second slower than the German.

Esteban Ocon rounded out the top ten ahead of his Force India team's home race.

Fernando Alonso, who is set to serve a grid drop here following a series of penalties for changes to his Honda engine, was ninth. Alonso will start from the back.

Some form of cockpit protection is set to be introduced next season, with the shield, which was run for the first time yesterday, having emerged as the preferred option over the halo concept that was trialled past year.

Vettel, who heads Hamilton by 20 points in the championship ahead of this weekend's British Grand Prix, is in the final campaign of his three-year deal with Ferrari.
