Orlinski's work was also exhibited at the Circuit Paul Ricard where the race was held, his style recognisable from the trophies given out.

A wheel then came off Sergio Perez's Force India vehicle at speed on the Mistral straight in the late afternoon. "It is such a handsome place", he added.

Hamilton lost his lead in the standings to Vettel two weeks ago when Mercedes couldn't deliver a planned engine upgrade on time. Either they know something we don't or they have made a mistake.

She said that she didn't close the windows of her office because it was too hot and that it wouldn't have stopped the noise. However, Ettel denied there was a "racial component" to her reaction. "She never asked us to be quiet".

Finnish team mate Valtteri Bottas, who had gone top moments earlier, had to settle for second - just 0.118 of a second slower - as the Silver Arrows locked out the front row in style.

The session ended in drama with three minutes remaining when Swede Marcus Ericsson crashed heavily into the barriers at the high-speed Beausset corner, his Sauber auto bursting into flames on one side.

Video images later showed extensive scorching to the rear of the vehicle and the Swede was unable to take part in second practice due to the damage.

In F1's first race in France in a decade, Hamilton quickly adapted to the unfamiliar track by posting the top times in both of Friday's qualifying sessions, while Vettel struggled to find the right driving lines.

Four-time champion Hamilton, in a Mercedes, finished ahead of Max Verstappen in a Red Bull and Ferrari's Kimi Räikkonen after starting from pole. Quite how the Dutch 20-year-old deals with a new track remains to be seen as Red Bull try to get the most out of their Renault engine before switching to Honda from next year.

"Over the long run I was able to play a little more and find some (driving) lines".

Canada sets October start for legal recreational marijuana sales

"After Saturdays, I'm always here answering negative questions", Alonso, whose future at McLaren remains uncertain, told Sky Sports.
