Nico Rosberg: Kimi-Lewis crash was '100 percent' not on objective

Vettel edges Lewis in FP2 at Silverstone1:48World champion Lewis Hamilton takes on our fiendish quiz which has only one rule- You Have To Answer

While comments from Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes made in the heat of the moment after the Silverstone race stirred up the idea that the first lap collision could have been on goal, 2016 Formula 1 world champion Rosberg thinks the incident was simply down to Raikkonen messing up.

Mercedes themselves have also clarified on social media that there was "no accusation" from the team, posting on Twitter: "Nobody is seriously suggesting it was deliberate".

Ferrari boss Maurizio Arrivabene claims Sebastian Vettel "fought like a lion" to shrug off neck pain and win a memorable British GP. But it is what it is and we just need to learn, understand and just try to get in control of the tyres in the best possible way.

Hamilton also acknowledged the fanatical F1 supporters at Silverstone on a scorching hot afternoon.

"This is the greatest race of the year and the greatest crowd", he said. "I'm grateful the vehicle was in one piece and I'm grateful to get through". It was eventful from the start, but in the final laps, we just didn't have the pace of the Ferraris on the fresher tyres. I believe that if we would have had 10 degrees less temperature in qualifying, maybe we would have had a bigger gap and maybe the same on Sunday.

A bad start dropped Hamilton to third and he was then hit by the Ferrari of Kimi Raikkonen at Turn 3, which dropped the Mercedes driver to 18th.

As the lights went out, Vettel made a near-perfect start to pull clear into the lead followed by Bottas.

"We've won on their home ground", Vettel said over the radio. "Every bit of energy I had". I am privileged to have had the chance to work with you and continue to think in that manner.

"Interesting tactics, I would say, from their side". Sometimes they want to teach us how to be gentlemen. He didn't see it as a last-to-second comeback drive.

The data was specifically referring to paid users as well, so no one still on either Apple or Spotify's free trial was included. Back then the Apple US-based subscriber growth rate was 5 percent in the country as compared to Spotify's 2 percent.

Formula 1 is working hard to ensure the British Grand Prix at Silverstone stays on the calendar with a long-term future, according to Ross Brawn.

Bottas ended the race fourth after fending off Daniel Ricciardo's advances, the Australian having been promoted from sixth when his Red Bull Racing teammate, Max Verstappen retired after spinning off the road late in the race.

As Vettel said on Sunday, Ferrari are coming on strong against Mercedes and now able "to take their magic away and have a fight on an equal level".

"This sport is at its very best when unpredictable and we saw that proven today with a thrilling spectacle for the aficionado and casual fan alike". In [technical director] James Allison's words, 'do you think it is deliberate or incompetence?'.

"Obviously the safety vehicle spiced it up, but it was a nice battle", he said.

"Kimi had a good start, we have the telemetry data, so he found himself immediately on top of Hamilton".
