Donning the red white and blue, will Hamilton strike gold this weekend at Silverstone? This left Hamilton 7.7 seconds ahead of Verstappen when a Virtual Safety Car was deployed to allow for Bottas' car to be removed.
"As soon as we got the auto back that evening we had a fix designed and put into test-mode". Hamilton was unhappy before his late retirement complaining to his team that "we've just thrown away a win", by bungling the timing of a tyre change.
This year's grand prix was held from March 22-25, welcoming nearly 300,000 fans over four days as Melbourne hosted the opening round of the 2018 season, which saw Sebastian Vettel victorious for the second year running.
He leads fellow four times world champion Lewis Hamilton, victor for the past four years at Silverstone, by a point ahead of the 10th round of the season. 'We all wished it wasn't the way it was, but what doesn't kill you makes you stronger.
"It's going to be the most physical race of the year for me, I think", said Hamilton.

Having been resurfaced in February of this year, Pirelli have reacted to the strenuous demands of the grippy British Grand Prix track by bringing their hardest tyre compound selection for any race this season to Silverstone, including the new, ice blue-walled hard tyre. "I'm confident we have done everything possible to make sure it doesn't happen again". Chief strategist James Vowles made a public apology to Hamilton over the radio during last Sunday's race. "It's a real privilege for me and I was just watching some of the replays of past year and if you look at the end when it shows you all of the positions and obviously to see the Union Jack up there is always a great feeling".
Christian Horner, the Red Bull team principal has been critical of the move and believes he would never single out an employee for such a misjudgment. I don't know if that's two or 10, or somewhere in-between. There's obviously talk of the historic number of wins but I'm grateful just to be fighting for a sixth win at Silverstone, I'm very privileged.
"I think it's highly encouraging for Ferrari that they're in amongst the Mercedes" - Martin Brundle.
And on the battle with Ferrari, Hamilton admitted: "It's going to be very, very close this weekend, the Ferraris are really fast. Luckily I could manage it until the end of the race", Verstappen said.
"I was on the Soft and the Medium tyres today; the Soft felt better than the Medium, and they seem to last - which is impressive if you look at the forces and loads they have to take on this track".
