Max Verstappen wins the 2018 Austrian GP

"Every driver is different, and I've never worked with Lewis so I don't know what makes him tick, but it seems a fairly weird thing for someone to need to do - to throw themselves under the bus to motivate a driver to go from fourth back into the lead", Horner said.

Mercedes have come under fire after they admitted to making a tactical mistake which scuppered Lewis Hamilton's Austrian GP charge last weekend.

"It was incredible, very hard to manage the tyres, lot of blistering, but we managed to hang on", said Verstappen of Red Bull's first win at the circuit they own. He accepted, however, that drivers should carry some of the blame for complaining in the past of inconsistencies in stewards' decisions which had led to a more rigid approach.

Hamilton's Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas said the new surface is "so bumpy that you actually get a bit of a headache" and said it is now the bumpiest race venue in F1.

"Everything we put on the auto seemed to work", said Sebastian Vettel after setting the fastest time of Practice Two in a Ferrari vehicle fitted with a new floor. Hamilton reeled off two fastest laps, but it was asking too much as Mercedes' unbeaten four-year run in Austria, and his own race, came to an end when he pulled up on lap 64 after losing power.

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.

Saudis will pump up oil production, says Trump
Saudi Arabia regulates its oil production in agreement with other members of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries . Saudi King Salman speaks during a meeting of the Saudi-Iraqi Bilateral Coordination Council in Riyadh on October 22, 2017.

"Austria was a hard weekend, we all wished it wasn't the way it was, but what doesn't kill you makes you stronger".

"We're (England) fighting for the World Cup so it's just a great time I think for sport". Bottas retired in the 14 lap due to a gearbox problem, sparking a virtual safety vehicle period. The speeds we're going now, the g-forces we're pulling through Copse, through Maggots and Becketts - you're flat-out, going all the way into Maggots.

"I do really feel like I have the best strategy team behind me".

Immediately, both Ferrari and Red Bull responded with double pit-stops for their drivers while Mercedes left Hamilton out - a tactical oversight that was to prove costly.

"One thing you have to do is win as a team and lose as a team". I hope it is not a title decider, but I can't predict what is happening going forward.

"My view is that in my role as team principal you are here to protect your workforce to make sure they are represented in the best possible way". We have had far more success than failures. "He's a racer, he understands racing commitment and spirit and I think he's going to be a good leader for the future at McLaren". "I'm very, very sorry guys".
