At a time when Brexit blues are gripping the British public, Lewis Hamilton will be hoping to give his faithful following something to cheer about on Sunday at Silverstone.

Hamilton headed into the British Grand Prix weekend trailing Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg by just 11 points in the drivers’ championship following his controversial victory in Austria last weekend.

The fire has been re-stoked in their intra-team battle after the last-lap clash at the Red Bull Ring, given their front-row lock-out at Silverstone an extra edge.

Hamilton and Rosberg will be going wheel-to-wheel off the line today, and will likely become embroiled in another tense battle for victory.

However, with rain forecast at points and the likes of Red Bull and Ferrari lurking behind, Mercedes’ victory may not be as academic as it seems today.
