Hamilton's Finnish teammate Valtteri Bottas, with a new engine in his vehicle after last weekend's mechanical retirement in Austria, was second and third fastest respectively in the two sessions. "So the team is super on it", Hamilton said.
"We try to do their magic, that's what we've tried in the last years", said Vettel. Before being sidelined by a fuel pressure problem, he had already dropped from first to fourth when Mercedes failed to bring him in for an immediate pitstop after the virtual safety auto had been deployed. "I don't know how much that is in weight, but it's tonnes of weight going through these tyres and through your body". We think that both failures were confined to the items which failed and they are both things which can be replaced without breaking into the sealed areas of the auto which attract sporting penalties.
Mercedes driver Valtteri Bottas started from pole position ahead of his team mate Lewis Hamilton.
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.
Hamilton trails Sebastian Vettel by a point in the battle for the Formula One title after the defending champion retired from the Austrian Grand Prix when he lost fuel pressure.
"I think coming here [to Silverstone] there's been some fixes already", the 33-year-old said.
He added: "It's quite hard without knowing the intricacies of other teams, but the one thing you have to do as a team is win as a team and lose as a team, and that's why we don't often - or hardly at all - talk about individuals in success or failure, because that puts an unfair amount of scrutiny and pressure on that individual". Neither driver is expected to incur any starting grid penalties in Sunday's race at Silverstone as a result of the mechanical problems in Austria.

Urgences-sante president Nicola D'Ulisse says the service is overwhelmed and has reached the limits of what it can provide. A blanket of steamy, hot air has gripped Quebec and much of central and eastern Canada since Saturday.
"These experiences that we have been having and how we've been handling them have really united us more than any year".
"We need to make sure those things don't happen again because you can not just expect that everybody else has days like that". Hamilton insisted that they should have won the race. "It's just the way the sport is".

And on the battle with Ferrari, Hamilton admitted: "It's going to be very, very close this weekend, the Ferraris are really fast".
