Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas were fastest during an incident-packed opening practice for the British Grand Prix on Friday.

It would also be his fifth consecutive win at the Northamptonshire track. But the important thing is that we had a good Friday, everything we put on the auto seemed to work, and I felt happy with the balance of the vehicle straight away and managed to find a good rhythm from the beginning.

Reflecting on his qualifying performance, Hamilton said: "I think it's, for me, with the whole build-up, with the whole intensity, with the whole spur-of-the-moment thing, knowing how close we were, for me it feels like one of the best laps that I've been able to produce. I hope I can do it for them tomorrow".

"But yeah, I think at the end of the day, it's not ideal to lose the second session, but the feeling I had before that was actually quite good".

Australian Daniel Ricciardo and Kimi Raikkonen traded fourth and fifth places while Max Verstappen, victor in Austria for Red Bull, was sixth in the morning but crashed after lunch without setting a time.

Vettel was first to clock a track record and it kept falling as drivers took advantage of soft tires on the new asphalt track.

Victory on Sunday would be a record sixth British GP victory for Hamilton, and would take him ahead of Sebastian Vettel in the drivers' championship, in which the German now leads by one point. "We're flat-out through Turn One, we're flat-out through Copse, it's insane, to turn in there at 300-and-whatever-it-is-kilometers we're doing". Hamilton needs to get his championship back on track after a dismal race in Austria last Sunday in which he... The Spaniard improved in second practice.

The issue certainly didn't seem to hold him back in qualifying.

Williams has only four points this season and Harris acknowledged on Friday she had been "dreading" the team's home race.

Brendon Hartley, who crashed spectacularly in the morning practice, did not take part in qualifying. The New Zealander was fortunate to emerge unhurt after losing his front left wheel due to a suspected suspension failure, pitching the vehicle off at speed in a shower of sparks and dust before slamming into the barriers.
