Nico Rosberg says he is keen to keep up the momentum from his dominant performance in the Austrian Grand Prix as he prepares to challenge Lewis Hamilton on home soil at Silverstone.

The German comes to his Mercedes team-mate and title rival's home event on the back of an almost exemplary weekend at the Red Bull Ring as he notched up a third win of the season that reduces the margin between the pair to 10 points.

However, just as Rosberg has a strong record at the Austrian venue, he comes to Silverstone looking to keep Hamilton honest at a circuit he has won on two occasions previously.

"My week in Austria could not have come together much better," he said. "Apart from the mistake in quali, I felt right on top of things from the start and it was great to get another win. With the extra day in the car on Wednesday also, helping the team prepare for Silverstone, I feel ready to go full attack at a circuit I really enjoy.

"It should suit our car nicely with the focus on downforce and we learned some useful things during the test, so I'm sure we'll be strong once again. The crowds are really incredible at this race and it's always a great atmosphere. Of course, I know they have their favourite!

"Hopefully we can have a good fight and keep the fans on their feet - especially the guys from our factories who have built such an unbelievable machine! It's great that they have a chance to come and see it in action, so this weekend is all about giving them a great reward."
