I deserved penalty for Hamilton clash - Raikkonen

Hamilton then nailed team-mate Bottas at the same spot a lap later to seal second and Kimi Raikkonen made it a hat-trick of late passes at Brooklands to demote his countryman from the podium entirely.

Hamilton's problems all began as a awful start allowed Vettel to easily get ahead with Bottas also squeezing up the inside into Abbey.

Hamilton started in pole position but Vettel streaked ahead and his Ferrari teammate Kimi Raikkonen compounded Hamilton's misfortune when he bumped into him, sending the British driver off the track and leaving him last.

In their official ruling, stewards said Hamilton had "clearly left significant room on the inside" of the corner and that Raikkonen "locked up his right front tyre, understeered and caused a collision".

Raikkonen wasn't happy when told of his 10-second penalty for the incident with Hamilton over the radio but had cooled down by the end of the race.

Hamilton lost his championship lead to Ferrari rival Sebastian Vettel due to not finishing in Austria.

Hamilton had a slow start, which meant Vettel and Bottas were quick to overtake him. I will not give up.

"Interesting tactics I would say from this side but we'll do what we can to fight them", Hamilton said. Hamilton finished second and surrendered more ground to the German in what is turning out to be an epic and see-sawing title fight.

He was soon up to 16th and by lap nine he was eighth, but some distance from Vettel, who led Bottas by six seconds on lap 12. Really, this annoyed me so much.

The fact that Hamilton is only eight points adrift after 10 races is remarkable, considering that Mercedes have only won three times so far in 2018.

Ricciardo would opt for a two-stop strategy by pitting for Soft tyres again but that advantage would be wiped out by a big crash for Marcus Ericsson at Abbey which resulted in the first of two Safety Car appearances.

"At the end of the day it is not ideal to lose the second session, but the feeling I had before that was pretty good". I gave everything I could, and I was struggling to stand.

"It's true that they are very strong around here and we expect them to be very strong tomorrow, but I hope we can be there and I hope we can be close".

"I want to remind everyone that in China we had a situation between Vettel and Verstappen and nobody said anything, all fine". Funnily enough you start blaming us for doing it on goal but I locked the wheel, unfortunately we touched and we both paid the price for it and that's how it goes sometimes.
