Mercedes , though, have been at pains to point out they feel their driver made no illegal moves at any point in the incident.

Hamilton was adjudged by race stewards to have been "predominantly to blame" for the incident at Copse corner, which resulted in Verstappen, 23, being taken to hospital after a 51G impact.

Lewis Hamilton was left rueing Mercedes ’ choice of tyres after he finished ninth in the German Grand Prix. Wolff also confirmed Hamilton had been suffering from a bug. “He wasn’t healthy the whole weekend,” he said. “But he did the most he could to get himself in an OK place for the race. Many of us wouldn’t have considered being in a race car. You can’t be physically in your best game when you’ve been ill for a few days.”

Now Mercedes' Technical Director James Allison says: "We were lucky." Because the consequential dam on the Hamilton's W12 had been "fairly low", the whole situation was less dramatic than first accepted.

Allison speaks of a "broken or almost broken front left rim". This corresponds to the first assessment of Mercedes directly after the incident. Only at the follow-up of the Hamilton vehicle turned out: Although the rim had carried away fighting traces, but probably still survived the first stint.

Ferrari finally sealed their first victory of the season last weekend in Belgium but still "They've not had a championship obviously since 2007 so there's that yearning that all fans have of seeing their favourite team succeed," he said.

Lewis Hamilton yet to sign new contract for next season with Mercedes ; Hamilton took another big step towards seventh title with Emilia-Romagna GP win; Team principal Toto Wolff expected to move into new role at Mercedes . Hamilton was asked about his influential boss Wolff, who is considering stepping aside from his role as team principal, and the fear of Mercedes losing momentum without him when he replied in the press conference: "I don't even know if I'm going to be here next year so it's not really a concern for me at the moment."

In addition, the mechanics swarmed the front wing of the car, because there were "pretty cosmetic damage" on the front wing end plate, said Allison. "There it had torn a small sensor from anchoring."

Why Mercedes did not change the front wing

was a temperature sensor directed backwards and transmitting data about the state of front tires. "This sensor dangled only at his cable instead of the chic bracket, which we designed for it," explains Allison.

Why did Mercedes not just exchanged the complete wing exchanged instead of making the sensor "with tape and adhesive" to fix the sensor? Allison says, "Because it was the easiest in this situation."

It explains the Mercedes mindset: "Aerodynamically, the incident has not affected the wing itself. All parts that generate output and the power of the vehicle are conducive were absolutely intact."

Lewis Hamilton will not leave Mercedes to join a non-British team, says David Coulthard. Coulthard, pictured last year, believes - like him - Hamilton wouldn't suit the Italian culture. 'Even if he did leave Mercedes , I just don't see him fitting in with the culture at an Italian-based team. I say that as someone who had a contract offered to me to race with Ferrari, in 1996, and in the end I just felt more comfortable with British teams.

Although Hamilton 's salary at Mercedes will be larger than the one he was offered by McLaren - and he has more opportunity to earn money through personal sponsorships and endorsements - sources close to the Englishman insist he has switched teams with a view to long-term performance. But Mercedes have sold the move to Hamilton on the basis that they are preparing for a huge push in 2014, when new chassis and engine rules are introduced. " Mercedes -Benz has supported Lewis throughout his career, from karting, to Formula 3, to our successful partnership with McLaren," said

"We also knew exactly how the balance of the car looks like this day with exactly this wing. We did not want to mess this balance by confusing this balance by Mount another wing. "

Because there is always the possibility that two identical front wings do not act exactly identical exactly, which was due to "small differences in the manufacturing process". "And such a small difference could have gotten us a slightly different balance. There it was much more meaningful to simply repair the little damage. That was done quickly."

One did not have to get involved in a potentially changed vehicle behavior, which might have gone with a nasal change, said Allison. His conclusion: "For us it was the best way to guarantee uniform performance before and after the interruption."

The result gives Mercedes right: Hamilton won the Great Britain Grand Prix before Ferrari driver Charles Leclec and Valtteri Bottas in the second Mercedes.
