Drivers Quotes After British GP

HAM: “Down the straight the tyre deflated and that was a heart in the mouth moment… I was just praying to get it round. I was really chilled at the end. Bono was giving me the info (about Max). I’ve definitely never experienced something like that on the last lap”

VER: “The tyres didn’t look great with ten laps to go. I pitted to go for the fastest lap but then Lewis got his puncture! But P2 is a good result for us and I’m happy with that”

LEC: “It was a very tricky race – we got the best result that we possibly could have today. The car is not running to its potential but we are happy with this podium”
