Lewis Hamilton tops the final practice session at the 2017 British Grand Prix.
Silverstone sunshine went missing as Lewis Hamilton went fastest ahead of qualifying, edging Sebastian Vettel in overcast conditions at the British Grand Prix. With just 0.032 seconds separating the title-rivals, before rain fell to switch the programs. Catching out few drivers, and Max Verstappen’s engineer.
Final practice at the Austrian Grand Prix topped by Sebastian Vettel.
Friday may have belonged to Lewis Hamilton in terms of pace. But on the back of the FIA confirming Lewis will take a five-place grid penalty for a gearbox change, the three-time champion limped home at the end of final practice with a brake failure. Sending the Mercedes off track at Turn 3, moments after the Briton hampered the progress of the pace-setting Sebastian Vettel.
