Lewis Hamilton puts Austria setback behind him and focuses on British GP
• Driver praised team immediately after Austrian Grand Prix
• Hamilton has won his past four races at Silverstone
Toto Wolff, the Mercedes team principal, has revealed that Lewis Hamilton immediately reassured his team of his confidence in them after he was forced to retire from the Austrian Grand Prix on Sunday. Despite the disappointment, Wolff said the Briton had already psychologically reset in order to be best prepared for this week’s British Grand Prix.
Max Verstappen won the race for Red Bull but Hamilton’s championship hopes took a real blow in Spielberg when he failed to finish because of a fuel pressure problem on lap 63. His title rival, Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel, was third, gaining a 15-point swing in his favour and retaking the lead by one point from Hamilton.
