A cracking Grand Prix is in prospect this weekend at Silverstone, with the resumption of the tantalising intra-team fight at Mercedes and Force India’s long-awaited upgraded car the major talking points as the world championship nears the halfway stage.

At the Silver Arrows, it is Nico Rosberg who arrives in Britain hotfoot from a great victory last time out in Austria. Lewis Hamilton, last year’s victor, has the advantage of home soil, of course, and is intent on doing his huge fanbase proud – but he’ll need to reverse what was a genuine deficit to Rosberg in Spielberg.

“I don’t feel like I ever really reached my peak in Austria,” says Hamilton, whose championship lead stands at just 10 points, the lowest it has been all year. “It wasn’t the smoothest of weekends for me – so to come away with P2 wasn’t a disaster in the circumstances.

“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!”
