Mercedes themselves have also clarified on social media that there was "no accusation" from the team, posting on Twitter: "Nobody is seriously suggesting it was deliberate".

The most recent of which took place in Austria when the Mercedes' pit wall, led by chief strategist James Vowles, failed to react to a Virtual Safety Car period, which resulted in Hamilton dropping from first to fourth.

Formula One Managing Director of Motorsports Ross Brawn and Lewis Hamilton have launched the first-ever crowd-sourcing competition in a global sport. "Without the mistakes and the penalty it would have been better, but I tried".

What allowed Sebastian Vettel through was the pace he was forcing Bottas to drive at, with the Finn's tyres eventually falling away from him. I sweat my arse off in that race.

"I lost almost 3kg trying to get back to the top for you and my team", he wrote.

Looking ahead to Sunday's race, Hamilton added: "The start and the tyre management will be key for the race". "We take it on the chin and believe me, I will not give up". In France Ferrari also got the better start, with Vettel admitting his extra speed heading down to Turn 1 was part of the reason he misjudged his braking and ploughed into Bottas.

As the lights went out, Vettel made a near-perfect start to pull clear into the lead followed by Bottas.

"I went a bit too deep into Turn 16, lost a few tenths there and dropped to fourth".

'I think I surprised Valtteri and I wasn't sure I'd make the corner but I did and it worked really well, ' said Vettel.

"Really, really pleased with the result" remarked race victor Vettel, "especially here, a track that we've struggled at in the past, it was nice to see that we were strong all weekend and able to fight for the win, obviously we got the lead back in the end, it felt very satisfying". Both Mercedes drivers will start Sunday's Grand Prix on the Soft tyre.

Formula 1 is working hard to ensure the British Grand Prix at Silverstone stays on the calendar with a long-term future, according to Ross Brawn.

Arrivabene was livid as he responded on Monday. Allision asked the Mercedes F1 boss, "Do you think it is deliberate or incompetence?"

The Sauber driver emerged unscathed, but the safety auto was sent out.

"It was only when he got into clear air, and he could feel what the auto was like and we could see his pace, that we were able to really understand that the damage was very, very minimal".

He held on until lap 47, when Vettel took advantage of a slight wobble from Bottas exiting The Loop onto the Wellington Straight, and drafted him towards Brooklands before diving inside very late as Bottas failed to cover the inside line.

Sebastian Vettel took the spoils at Silverstone, as the packed-out Northants venue baked in the British summer sun.
