Sirotkin managed to limp out of the gravel, but could manage only the slowest time with both Williams cars to start at the back.

He now shares the record of five British wins with late compatriot Jim Clark and France's four-times champion Alain Prost.

Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton celebrates after qualifying in pole position. His then-Mercedes team mate Nico Rosberg was the last person to pip Hamilton to pole here in 2014. And our long run pace was good, so I'm excited for a close race with these guys.

Sebastian Vettel may have finished quickest during Friday's running for the 2018 British Grand Prix, but the championship leader says the weekend's competitive picture is yet to develop.

"It wasn't the most enjoyable session but I did the session so it was fine", he said. "The Ferraris pulled something out when it got to Q3".

Shaking with emotion, Hamilton drew a blank when asked about that final push and where those vital few hundredths of a second had come from. I honestly don't remember it, man. For tomorrow, I think the night will help so I'm not anxious.

Acknowledging the cheers of the crowd, Hamilton insisted that the support from the fans around Silverstone had made all the difference. And then afterwards I was just.

"For me it feels like one of the best laps that I have been able to produce", the 33-year-old told reporters later.

Kimi Raikkonen lines up in third for Ferrari ahead of Hamilton's team-mate Valtteri Bottas. "I think I had all the tools today to be faster but I locked the front wheel going into Turn 16 on the last lap". 'I don't know what happened with my neck, but it went stiff, ' he said.

While not as good as he'd hoped for, the grid position still puts Bottas in with a good chance of a podium in Sunday's race.

"It's going to be an extremely close race with Ferrari, and a lot is going to be down to who can really take care of the tyres, and not overheat or blister them too much".

Toto Wolff explains: "You could see that with the lead Red Bull auto in Austria, Max [Verstappen] was managing his pace and had no problems with the tyres, and Daniel [Ricciardo] - the same vehicle - attacking and trying to make it past Kimi [Raikkonen] had heavy blistering on an identical vehicle".
