Valtteri Bottas edges out teammate Lewis Hamilton at British Grand Prix practice

Alonso already had a five-place grid penalty for using an extra energy store.

Hamilton fell 20 points behind championship leader Sebastian Vettel in the drivers' standings after he could only work his way up to fourth at the Austrian Grand Prix last week following a five-place grid penalty for changing his gearbox.

"Everyone had the right to make the decision for themselves", Hamilton said, as quoted by the Guardian. "It's disappointing not to be able to show more of what we can do in qualifying".

Several teams believe that the wind was the cause of their problems in the afternoon, and hope for warmer, less gusty conditions tomorrow.

Lewis Hamilton remains on course for a fourth consecutive British Grand Prix win after claiming pole position at Silverstone. Hamilton was fastest on a 1:28.063, with Vettel setting the fastest first two sectors on his flying attempt before eventually falling just 0.032s short of Hamilton's time.

"I had the opportunity, said the young driver from 18, of the browse there are a few months behind the wheel of a auto 2014 from our stable, as well as the edge of a F3 in 2015". It was already one of the very best circuits in the world, but with this vehicle and the speed we are able to carry through the corners, it's just phenomenal, it's like the greatest rollercoaster ride ever. The yearning and will to want to do that again is greater than ever.

This prompted a red flag for a five-minute delay to remove his vehicle before the action resumed, this setback leaving him 20th and last before a five-place penalty for an unscheduled gearbox change is applied.

"Mercedes look really strong but we look to be in the fight with Ferrari".

What with Jon losing his first love Yrigitte and Daenerys having lost her husband, Khal Drogo, maybe they're meant to be together. But her co-stars are always there to reassure her. "My mates are like, 'It's you - you and Daenerys are one and the same now".

The shield, made of transparent polycarbonate, is created to sit in front of the driver and deflect any flying debris.

The test was not an immediate success.

Hamilton told reporters: "I was coming around to start my lap, Valtteri [Bottas] was up ahead, so I was, as we all do, trying to get the space".

"The vision is not very good [with the shield cockpit protection] and I think it's because of the curvature that creates a bit of distortion".

But the good news for McLaren continued as team-mate Stoffel Vandoorne out-qualified the two-time champion for the first time this season and snuck through into the top 10 shoot-out as the last man in Q2.

"We're anxious about reflections but there may be solutions to that".

But he added that the faster, more demanding 2017 cars meant that part of the middle left-hander of the Becketts complex that follows Copse was flat-out when it never had been before.
