"I just wish we could have done more for the fans today," Hamilton agreed. "I raced my heart out and was flat-out right to the end."
Hamilton did give the fans an extra show on the cool-down lap to say thanks to all the fans that had come today despite all the problems with the weather and traffic over the weekend.
"I gave the fans a little donut on the slow-down lap, simply because I wanted to say thank you to everyone who came out to watch us here today," he explained. "I'd love to have done better in my home Grand Prix, but, regardless, the fans were fantastic throughout the weekend."
