Lewis Hamilton: “I don’t feel like I ever really reached my peak in Austria. It wasn’t the smoothest of weekends for me – so to come away with P2 wasn’t a disaster in the circumstances. Silverstone, though… that’s different. I can’t describe the feeling I had last year – lifting that trophy again in front of the sea of fans on pit straight after so many years and after a tough start to the weekend too. It’s something that will always stay with me and nothing less than the same again will do. I’m lucky enough to have fans all around the world – but winning in front of your home crowd is something else.
We have a fantastic car this year - even better than in 2014 - and it should suit this track, so I'll be going all out to make the most of it. The guys back at the factories deserve to see a big home result and I want to see Silverstone absolutely rocking at the chequered flag!”
