Hamilton gunning for British GP win

Lewis Hamilton: We're going to give it everything we've got...

Lewis Hamilton has set his sights on winning in front of his home fans next weekend at Silverstone.

Hamilton left empty handed in Valencia following his clash with Pastor Maldonado on the penultimate lap. Despite that though, the Englishman has said he won't change his approach and he has vowed to do his utmost to repeat his British Grand Prix triumph from 2008.

“Sometimes you have to accept when things don't go your way in racing. Obviously it was frustrating to lose out so close to the finish, but that's motor racing: you put it behind you and move on to the next race – which, happily for me, is at my home circuit of Silverstone,” Hamilton commented in the countdown to the ninth round in the 2012 F1 World Championship.

“It doesn't really alter the way I go racing because I race to win, and that's what I'll be doing, especially at my home grand prix.

“The Santander British Grand Prix is special because I get a massive boost from all the fans. To me, winning at Silverstone is right up there with winning at Monaco.

“Standing on the top step of the podium in 2008 was among the sweetest moments of my career.

“I know we can count on the fans to bring a totally unique atmosphere. We're going to give it everything we've got and put on a great show.

“This is an incredible summer of sport for Britain and I want to play my small part in bringing some joy to fans.

“I will be doing everything possible to get a win for my country on home soil,” concluded the McLaren driver.
