Lewis Hamilton says it's impossible to say how the F1 season will pan out; especially in a season where both Mercedes and Ferrari have at times appeared dominant while other times have been way off the pace.

Horner said the move to pass Raikkonen was "really brave", while Verstappen's father Jos told Autosport said: "This is Max, and we don't want to see him different".

"It's a small step in the right direction. I had a good rhythm straight away so, for a change, we had a good Friday".

After the restart following a nine-minute red flag, Lewis Hamilton slotted into second place on medium tyres with a lap of 1m28.676s completed 36 minutes into the 90-minute session.

"It has been an up-and-down season, I can't really explain it", Hamilton said.

Yolo County Fire Grows with Little Containment
It has blazed through around 32,500 acres (13,150 hectares) and was 2 percent contained as of Sunday evening, officials said. During the 3 a.m. overflight there were large areas of very active fire , as represented by the red dots in the map below.

Mercedes's chief strategist James Vowles came on the radio as the bearer of bad news, admitting his error as Hamilton struggled to comprehend what the team had done. "We're flat out through Copse and Turn 1 and through Turn 2 with the DRS - it's insane how fast it is". It has to be the best track in the world, it feels like driving a fighter jet around the track.

"There's a great energy within the team so although it was a painful experience I think it brought us closer, it made us stronger and I think coming here there's been some fixes". I have the feeling we can keep developing the auto.

But last weekend's trouble was not the first of the season for Mercedes.

"Everything we put on the auto seemed to work", he said. "Here and there we've succeeded".

"It was a very, very mature drive from him to make sure he had just enough left in the last 5-10 laps". Daniel Ricciardo (Red Bull) - 96 5.

After a gearbox glitch in first practice, Verstappen crashed out on cold tyres at the start of Practice Two and admitted afterwards: "We're definitely not fighting for pole".

Max Verstappen of Red Bull notched his first victory of the season after winning the Austrian Grand Prix on Sunday.

"I can only imagine the boys are on a high at the moment and they just need to continue to do that".

Vettel said a number of small updates had worked well on his Ferrari on Friday, and said the key to success will be managing tyre temperatures at an unusually hot Silverstone this weekend.

The reigning champions had not been beaten in Austria since the race returned to the calendar in 2014 and seemed to be heading for a one-two when Valtteri Bottas retired with an hydraulics failure on lap 14. In the World Constructors' Championship, Ferrari is now ahead of Mercedes by 10 points.

Lakers add Rondo, renounce rights to Randle
He also played for the Celtics when the Lakers won the 2009-10 championship over Boston in seven. They also could waive him and stretch his contract in order to lessen their salary cap burden.

"This is a Mercedes circuit, it has been for a long time, and Ferrari have come here and topped them".
