"So my goal is to continue to deliver for as long as I can". Our philosophy is we take all the precautions necessary in light of where we're travelling and if we do take those precautions, I'm confident that we won't get the virus, " Szafnauer said.

Hamilton, who remains F1's only black driver and has spoken passionately about wanting to see a more diverse sport in future, added: "Also we're in a period of time there's not another driver from my background coming at the moment and I'm conscious of that as well". So I " m definitely going to be here, hopefully, for the foreseeable future.

"I don't know the schedule, but I don't see it happening in the next two or three years".

"So I'm just going to try and I want to earn my position here".

Lewis Hamilton is bidding to celebrate a record-extending seventh British Grand Prix win on Sunday but the F1 leader will be doing none of the usual crowd-surfing after what may be the most unusual home race of his career.

"I feel like every year I come back that it is not a given just because I have world championships under my belt. [Hamilton] mentioned that as one of the directors they're listening to you, and that was his point, and I think he was right in that aspect".

Safe mode can only be turned off by new commands from mission control, but as of now NASA says it isn't too anxious . Over 31 Earth days, the helicopter will undertake up to five flights on Mars.

"The British Grand Prix is the best grand prix, particularly because of the fans, the thousands that turn up and really create the spectacle", said the six-time world champion.

The defending champion had described the muddled ceremony before the last race in Hungary, where several drivers were late and some were missing, as embarrassing.

"I said [to] Lewis look maybe I did it wrong but I felt that as one of the directors, Sebastian was pushing in the direction of carrying on [the] end racism [stance], which is the right approach, I was speaking for the drivers that were not happy to carry on, to express their voices, as a director of the GPDA".

"He originally reached out to me to talk after the last race and so I gave him a call and we had this great conversation".

The defeats are once again raising questions over if Bottas' approach of simply trying to improve to Hamilton's level can work or does he need to try and destabilise the Briton, as Nico Rosberg did during their increasing tenuous four seasons together. He is clearly a caring person. So to hear that he's said that's not easy firstly for anybody to admit that you're wrong. And that's a great first step.

"When we got off the phone I knew that we were united and we're going to be working towards the same common goal". I think the results that we are achieving, I think a huge amount of that is down to his leadership and I think there are so many people in this team and we are part of the same chain and we are all different links in the chain, but the philosophy that he hands down, stems down from his drive and he is a real racer at heart. And that's a great first step. And that's really what it is going to take from all of us; open up our minds, don't put barriers up, don't be defensive, be open-minded.
