British Grand Prix - Silverstone 16 July

Maurizio Arrivabene: “Even if the reasons are obvious, complaining about losing a second and a fourth place is not Ferrari’s style. Today, the hard fact is that we lost a lot of points in both the Constructors’ and Drivers’ championships. We leave here, set on improving quickly, with humility and determination.”

Daniil Kvyat (STR12-04, Car 26)
Race: Pos. 15th
“Even if I was able to continue after the collision with Carlos, my race was also compromised and I’m obviously not happy with what happened. I was ahead and on a dirty line, so it’s normal to have some understeer, and then, all of a sudden, the crash took place. These things happen and sometimes they’re unavoidable. It’s a real shame, as this has damaged both us drivers and the team, which I feel very sorry for. There’s not much more that can be done now, we just need to learn from this and move forward.”

16 JULY 2017
MAX VERSTAPPEN, Finish Position: 4th, Start Position: 4th
“It is a positive day, I am happy to finish the race and get some solid points once again. We got a bit lucky with Seb’s puncture at the end and I pitted to be safe as I knew I had enough room behind me. The front left didn’t feel great and having seen what happened to the Ferrari we played it safe. If I had seen Kimi pit at the end I may have stayed out to try and get a jump on him but we made the precautionary stop to make sure we finished. With a lot of fast rights here it takes its toll on the front left so we knew there would be issues late on. At the beginning I knew I was quite a bit slower than Seb so I just did my best to stay in front and have some fun, it was the only thing I could do and luckily he didn’t manage to pass me on track, after that little battle my race became a bit lonely. Our pace was pretty good and the car felt competitive during the race, it felt better than it did in qualifying so now we need to understand why we struggled yesterday. Fourth is a good result, probably one place better than we expected which is always nice. We have some upgrades coming in Hungary which I am hoping will make some steps towards being able to fight with the top two teams.”

2017 British Grand Prix – qualifying

Qualifying | 15/07/2017
Stoffel Vandoorne will start tomorrow’s British Grand Prix at Silverstone from eighth – the highest starting position in his Formula 1 career. Today’s result was a real validation of the efforts of the young Belgian and his engineers, who have worked well together over the past few races to alter their preparation and approach in order to maximise performance.

A bravura effort from Fernando Alonso in Q1 saw him scrape over the line by the tiniest of margins to start one last flying lap. It was worth it: on a drying but still damp track, on slicks, he established the fastest overall time of the first session.
After setting the 13th-fastest time in Q2, he will start from the back of the grid tomorrow owing to a 30-place grid penalty for PU component changes.
