Lewis Hamilton says that his stoppage during the second practice session for this weekend's British Grand Prix won't affect his preparation.

Hamilton was fastest on the opening day of running at Silverstone but failed to complete the session due to an engine problem with his Mercedes W05 Hybrid.

"The car felt pretty good here today but unfortunately I lost my most important run of the day this afternoon when I stopped out on track with an engine problem," he said.

"We haven't identified what the issue was yet but it shouldn't impact the rest of my weekend.

"We will change my programme around tomorrow morning to try and recover the time that I lost and make sure that I can complete my race preparation with a long run.

"It's not ideal but we'll recover!

"Apart from that, Silverstone has been great so far. The atmosphere is incredible and the support is just amazing; I love seeing so many fans here enjoying themselves."
