"They are like, "oh, you can't say that, ' but like, 'no, I thought we said we're in that comfort zone, you can say what you want"..."

While its rivals introduced their upgraded engines in Canada, the last minute discovery of quality control issues whilst on the dyno at Brixworth meant that Mercedes opted to stick with its old units. Apart from the colorful lines, it's hard to tell where you are.

While Hamilton will have a fresh engine here, his Mercedes team would not clarify whether their latest specification power unit will be introduced. I'm grateful for the hard work that everyone put into it back in Brixworth. They've really been pushing hard to get this engine here and doing it in the right way so a big thank you to everyone at the workshop.

It was not all smooth sailing for Mercedes, though - a water leak in the cooling system of Valtteri Bottas' vehicle prevented him from completing his qualifying simulation, meaning that you have to take his seventh-place time with a pinch of salt.

Teammate Valtteri Bottas also impressed with the second best time of the day.

Mercedes performed a late U-turn on a decision to unleash their revised power unit in Montreal which contributed to Hamilton finishing only fifth and losing his championship lead to Vettel.

Mercedes ran its new engine upgrade for the first time during Friday practice at the French Grand Prix, and the team claims it is better still than the one they had hoped to use in Canada.

"I have been playing games since I was a kid. and I haven't stopped, " said the Force India driver. "It's as simple as that". "It's as simple as that - sometimes you have these days, but let's see".

"On the long run I was able to play a little bit more, try different things with lines and try to understand a little bit more so hopefully I can start from there tomorrow then we should have more of a rhythm and vehicle wise, I think we can improve as well. It's a tricky track".

The 90-minute session was red-flagged with a minute remaining when Ericsson lost control at the Beausset corner, spun and hit the barriers hard, with the Sauber vehicle then catching fire.

The four-time world champion said he will try to do two things at once - prepare for the race and support England when they play Panama. I hope so because Lewis's time was pretty quick.

"We'll focus on the next races always going step by step. However, we still have some practice tomorrow, so we will see what we can do".
