Lewis Hamilton will start the British Grand Prix from second place after Max Verstappen won Saturday’s sprint race at Silverstone. Red Bull looked much quicker yesterday are worried they will not be able to close the gap when the lights go out.

“Naturally it hasn’t been the best day for us but we’ve been giving it absolutely everything,” said Hamilton.

“Tomorrow’s going to be tough but just the support of the fans, even the parade lap, the roar of the crowd is just magnificent. I’ll recharge tonight, come back stronger tomorrow.

“There’s definitely things that we’ve learnt from today and I hope that we can improve for tomorrow.

“I’ll be giving it everything for everyone who turns up tomorrow and I hope we can have a closer race than we had today.”
