Ferrari says Mercedes 'should be ashamed' after British GP comments

Hamilton recovered to second, aided by Mercedes decision not to pit him for fresh tyres under a safety vehicle to gain track position, but looked tense alongside Raikkonen while the top three waited to go onto the podium post-race.

Vettel also triumphed in Canada, a race Hamilton had won for the previous three years and six times in total, while Mercedes' hopes of a fifth successive Austrian Grand Prix win ended with mechanical failures to both cars.

While Hamilton was left exhausted post-race his title rival and British GP victor Sebastian Vettel appeared to have a bigger physical scare on Saturday.

Bottas subsequently dropped a further spot to Kimi Raikkonen, but Wolff backed the call to compete for the overall win.

"Obviously we're in a tough battle this year and it's the most intense battle that I think we've probably all had but I'm very, very grateful that the auto was still in one piece after the first turn three incident". After two accidents in the last laps turned a furious struggle between the four favorites of the season pilots "Ferrari" and "Mercedes". Gaining track position was the interesting one for us and that triggered our decision.

"But I mean, I want to give them a message: it's been a lovely battle, a battle that I think the audience appreciated".

Guglielmi said the crowd was incited by false reports , including that the man was unarmed or had a concealed carry permit. The department for years has faced scrutiny for disproportionately using deadly force in black and Latino neighborhoods.

In a race with two late safety vehicle periods, reigning champion Hamilton went from pole position to the rear of the field before finishing second for Mercedes in a superb fightback. "Sebastian was managing the tyres already again, like on the first set of the softs, you could see he was very fast at the beginning but then the tyre fell away". Maybe we would have had a chance at the end to attack with no Safety Car but its two maybe's. We would have done the opposite because as I said before I think both strategies had a realistic chance, it was a fifty-fifty I guess.

Bottas and Hamilton also backed the decision, thought the Finn conceded that given the outcome of his race, mirroring Vettel would have led to a better result.

"It's silly to think that anything happened was deliberate", he insisted.

"We took the risk to stay out to try and win the race, because on-track it's always more hard with a similar auto".

"But now looking back, for sure, the result would have been better stopping". I sweat my arse off in that race.

Speaking to Sky Italia after the race, Arrivabene said: "I came here to clarify, if he [Allison] actually said something like that, I mean, he should be ashamed of himself, because he worked many years in Maranello, he took quite a bit of money from Maranello aswell, today he's doing his job, you have to be elegant and know how to lose". I pushed absolutely 100, 1000%.
