F1: Hamilton keen to win at 'home' in Silverstone again

Silverstone: World champion Lewis Hamilton is seeking a return to his most dominant form on home soil this weekend when he bids to beat Mercedes team-mate Nico Rosberg in the British Grand Prix.

The 30-year-old Englishman has only a 10-points advantage over the German following Rosberg's victory at the Austrian Grand Prix and knows he needs to regain his earlier supremacy to repeat his triumph in last year's race. I don't feel like I ever really reached my peak in Austria," said Hamilton.

"It wasn't the smoothest of weekends for me, so to come away with second place 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 a sea of fans on pit straight, after so many years, and after a tough start to the weekend too.

"I'm lucky enough to have fans all around the world, but winning in front of your home crowd is something else.
