McLaren's British duo look for home boost

"Every time you come round it does seem like the water has moved, but I don't think it has," he added. "It's nothing about the skill of the drivers, it's whether you're driving the car or not, and when it's like that you're not - you're floating."

Everything to play for at Silverstone as far as McLaren are concerned, then - and especially with the massive boost of home support.

"I want to give a shout-out to the fans," said Hamilton. "They've been fantastic, very patient and so supportive. The cheers from the grandstands were spectacular.

"All these fans are coming [Sunday] to try and watch a great race and that's what I'm going to try and give them," he said. "Anything can happen and that's the exciting part of it. You have to go in with your heart and your head and get on with it."

Whitmarsh agreed, and said that the British F1 fans "really are the best in the world, hugely knowledgeable and massively enthusiastic in equal measure.

"So, whatever the weather, for their sakes, here's hoping that [the] Santander British Grand Prix offers them the spectacle and excitement that they've been waiting all year to enjoy."
