Pre-race. Gap: 20 points - Hamilton endured a frustrating Austrian Grand Prix, with Vettel opening up strong lead with second place behind Valtteri Bottas.
Finn Bottas, who topped both First and Second Practice for Mercedes at Silverstone on Friday was handed the penalty after the team were left with no choice but to replace the unit which had done four of the six races it was supposed to. "Now the plan is to win the championship", Hamilton said.
They cheered the three-time Formula One world champion at the end of a week when he faced criticism for being the only driver to snub a promotional event in London. Before the race could start, there was drama for local driver Jolyon Palmer who complained of a "brake by wire" issue and later had a hydraulic failure. Kimi Raikkonen was able to finish in third place despite this hiccup which resulted in a late pit stop, but Vettel dropped all the way back to seventh which saw him suffer in the points section. But Finn's vehicle developed front right tyre problems with three laps to go.
"That's why after Budapest, hopefully a good race again, I'm going to contemplate on a beach about what's right and wrong for the team".

"Then we were like P3, P4, it was clear that Valtteri [Bottas] would come because he benefitted at the beginning because I was stuck, but overall small things here and there that led into a busy afternoon". Esteban Ocon and Sergio Perez scored a double points finish for Force India at the outfit's home race in eighth and ninth, respectively.
Bottas, however, faces a likely five-place grid penalty for an unscheduled gearbox change, while stewards were looking into an incident in which Romain Grosjean claimed he was blocked by Hamilton.
Finishing just outside the podium are the Red Bulls of Max Verstappen in fourth and Daniel Ricciardo in fifth. "I'm really happy as with all that negativity that came into the weekend to be able to perform the way I have".
