Lewis Hamilton says he will be 'going all out' in his pursuit for a third British Grand Prix victory at Silverstone this weekend.

Hamilton won his first British Grand Prix in 2008 but had to wait until last year before emerging on top again at his home race.

Hamilton's title advantage was cut to 10 points by Nico Rosberg in Austria but is sure of regaining the upper hand this weekend.

"I don't feel like I ever really reached my peak in Austria," said Hamilton. "It wasn't the smoothest of weekends for me - so to come away with second wasn't a disaster in the circumstances.

"Silverstone, though... that's different. I can't describe the feeling I had last year - lifting that trophy again in front of the sea of fans on pit straight after so many years and after a tough start to the weekend too.

"It's something that will always stay with me and nothing less than the same again will do. I'm lucky enough to have fans all around the world - but winning in front of your home crowd is something else.

"We have a fantastic car this year - even better than in 2014 - and it should suit this track, so I'll be going all out to make the most of it."
