The Englishman Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes), seven-time Formula One world champion, who finished third in the British Grand Prix, the tenth of the World Cup, declared at the Silverstone circuit (England) -in which no one equals his eight victories and where this Sunday he stood on the podium for the fourteenth time – which the ‘safety car’ going out onto the track “benefited” him and that “being on the podium is impressive”.

“The ‘safety car’ came in at a beneficial moment for us but, in the end, it was what we were looking for with our plan to start with the medium tyres.

We wanted to go long and we did. The safety car arrived in good time; and that gave us some gains,” explained Hamilton, 38, and also a historical record holder for victories and pole positions (103 in both cases) in F1.

“For us, being on the podium is impressive. It’s been a season with many ups and downs, and we still have a lot of work to do with our car. As soon as we improve the rear of it, we’ll be on our way,” said the spectacular and eccentric champion of Stevenage.

The fans, their support once again, has been sensational; And it gets better every year. Once again the atmosphere at Silverstone has been incredible,” Hamilton said after finishing third in front of his home crowd at the British Grand Prix.
