Silverstone - Sebastian Vettel said his Ferrari was too slow for him to do any better after finishing ninth at the 2016 British Grand Prix.

After starting 11th in wet conditions, the four-time world champion was the first driver to switch to slick tyres, but Vettel spun and struggled as Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton enjoyed a record third successive home win.

Vettel said: "Overall it was not our day. Just not quick enough. As simple as that."

Penalised in Silverstone

Vettel's disappointing result saw him fall from third to fifth in the drivers' championship.

He said: "I think the call to come in was right. But then obviously I lost a lot of time when I spun.

"So, all the advantage was lost and from then it was quite difficult to pass and move ahead."

Vettel was also given a five-second time penalty for a misjudged passing move on Felipe Massa of Williams that saw him force the Brazilian off the track.
