Down in London, England's cricketers will be contesting their first men's World Cup final in 27 years.

The fans already have plenty to celebrate after Wednesday's announcement that Formula One is staying at the circuit for the next five years, and the five-times world champion aims to provide the icing on the cake.

"I don't understand why the organisers put the race on the same day as all these other big events", Hamilton said at Silverstone, discussing the Cricket World Cup and Wimbledon finals.

Pushed on what those agreements are, Grant added: "We are not going to get into any of our commercial arrangements, but we think there is room two races to coexist side by side as long as they have sufficient separation in time and as long as our commercial interests are recognised in some reasonably flexible way". The race will also be shown live on Channel 4 - the only one of 21 grands prix this season to be screened on free-to-air television. This is such a special weekend and it needs all the focus of the country and not a small amount. During Hamilton's bid for a record sixth home race win, cricket coverage will switch to a secondary channel.

"There are still a few improvements I can make and my lap wasn't flawless in FP2 so I can still extract a bit more, but overall I'm happy". "It's such a privilege to be here. Silverstone and the British Grand Prix are an integral part of that vision".

"(High temperatures in) Austria exposed the biggest vulnerability of our auto and it meant we couldn't challenge for the win at any point of the weekend", said team boss Toto Wolff.

"There is excitement and adrenaline going and there are pressures". My whole family is coming this weekend so it's that one weekend where it's the most special because your closest support surrounds you. "The last one was hard for us".

Verstappen's performance in Spielberg led Red Bull team principal Christian Horner to raise eyebrows by declaring the Dutchman as the sport's finest driver, adding he would beat Hamilton in identical machinery.

'It (2024) feels like a long way away so who knows if I will still be here then. I think it's important to put that stuff out of your head and focus on the job at hand. What is certain is that Hamilton Will have more chances to win at Silverstone in the future. "If I'm not, if I stop racing, then I won't be here in any other capacity".
