PADDOCK PASS: All the reaction from the drivers after qualifying at Silverstone


After Lewis Hamilton swept to pole position and victory in last week's British Grand Prix, the six-time champion was favourite to do likewise at this weekend's race, also being held at the Silverstone circuit.

And while he may yet seal back-to-back wins at the Northamptonshire track in the 70th Anniversary Grand Prix on Sunday, he missed out on consecutive pole positions after his Mercedes team mate Valtteri Bottas beat him to it in qualifying on Saturday afternoon.

But perhaps the most impressive performance was from Nico Hulkenberg, the ex-Renault driver who was called up for last week's race as a stand in for Sergio Perez who had tested positive for Covid-19.

Driving in the Mexican's stead once again this week, Hulkenberg was on supreme form in Q3, setting the third fastest time behind the two Mercedes cars.
