"I'm happy because the auto should be good in the race. What a great result for England today".

"Obviously for Valtteri it was very bad because it affected his race and he had nothing to do with it, so I went to him after the race [to talk to him]".

"My guys, I have been with them for six years they are pushing the boundaries and never giving up so I want to thank them and everyone at the factory".

"Hamilton was back to his brilliant best in qualifying and proceeded to dominate the race, crossing the line seven seconds ahead of Red Bull's Max Verstappen with Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen completing the podium", says the Formula 1 website.

Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel had to settle for third place on the grid after a scruffy lap in Q3 ensured he could not make up any ground on the Mercedes cars ahead.

Daniel Ricciardo was sandwiched between the Ferraris in fourth, with Haas' Kevin Magnussen and Bottas finishing sixth and seventh respectively.

Nevertheless, it is 32 years since Argentina last won the World Cup and 25 since their last silverware, the Copa America in 1993. I think it's unusual because he is a very important player in the national team and he had little involvement, which is odd .

Vettel had moved up to 11th by the end of the ninth lap, before the penalty, with Bottas 14th.

Alonso won the last of his two championships back in 2006, but here Hamilton has taken a big step to claiming his fourth title in five years, and his fifth in all.

"And of course, Seb shouldn't do anything, and just drive again, and learn from this, and go on. I tried to brake early and get out of it but I had no room", the German said.

"The headline has been the new power unit, which has been a massive effort from all the team in Brixworth...and that work is starting to pay off", said team boss Toto Wolff. "The floor of Valtteri's auto was destroyed".

Elaborating on his approach to the corner, Vettel says he was only marginally too late on the brakes and would not have run wide had there not been a auto on his outside.

On seeing a video recording of the incident, he said: "He took him right out -- ah, man, that's insane".

Mercedes non-executive director Niki Lauda said the penalty for Vettel was not enough.

"He's a four-time world champion and I doubt he's cheap".

"Five seconds is nothing". "I mean we are all going into Turn 1 as hard as you could, but when someone destroys your race through an error, it is kind of a tap on the hand".

Defending champion Hamilton has 145 points after eight races. Obviously it caught me out. I enjoyed the race. It's always a challenge when you come to a new circuit, but you're constantly learning new things and I love the challenge of trying to get into the swing of it before everyone else.

Raikkonen said he was "a bit blocked with all the mayhem" at the start, but made a decent recovery. "I touched with Vettel", Alonso said. "I knew that maybe with really fantastic lap I maybe had a chance".
