Eyes on the Prize for Hamilton
By: S. Harding, Sports Reporter July 01, 2015
What is expected to be a record crowd will descend on Silverstone this Sunday for the British Grand Prix, the attendance largely to the national pride generated by 2014 World Championship Lewis Hamilton.
The British diver is determined to give the passionate home fans three days to remember by dominating every session over the weekend.
The support that Hamilton receives on home soil, he admitted: "It is not until you go to that grand prix that you see it.
"Just when you don't think it can get any bigger, somehow the following year it has grown. It is huge and I hope I can go there and make people proud.
"I remember back in the day watching Nigel Mansell holding the Union Flag in the car.
"It is like the Olympics, like a gold medal, having the flag in the car after winning the grand prix. It is the closest thing I can imagine to having a gold medal."
But the two time world champion is very determined when it comes to winning the golden prize this Sunday.
Keep up with Formula 1
