Hamilton hopes to watch England in World Cup final

Lewis Hamilton GETTYLewis Hamilton is bidding to win his sixth Silverstone title
Sidney Guerrero | 08 July, 2018, 16:44

First, of course, comes the little matter of the quarter-final, which sees England take on Sweden, followed by a meeting with either host nation Russian Federation or Croatia. "England have such excitable fans, and there's so much passion in England for sport". The passion is insane.

Silverstone is the final race of an unprecedented triple header of grands prix on successive weekends after the schedule was bunched up to avoid a clash with the World Cup final.

"I've booked my day off, next Sunday, I've booked that day off, I'm like "keep it free because I want to be in Russian Federation for that day, supporting them", said Hamilton.

And the Brit, who went to the same Stevenage school as Three Lions defender Ashley Young, said he will fly out to Moscow if England make it all the way. "I want to be watching the game (on Saturday), I had to watch on my phone the other day". Thus the British lost a chance to get ahead in the overall standings of the German Sebastian Vettel from Ferrari, continuing to keep up with him on one point. Even watching it myself, I don't watch enough football, I played it as a kid and I was massively passionate about it as a kid and I used to collect all the stickers and stamps and magazines. Coming into this weekend there's talk of historic wins and these things, it's been an incredible journey since 2007 coming here and to be riding this positive wave, I'm very grateful to be fighting for a win here for the sixth time. "We're in for a serious fight which is great for the fans and I hope that we can pull through".

Two US destroyers sail into Taiwan Strait: Taiwan gov't
Two United States warships entered the Taiwan Strait on Saturday at a time of heightened tensions between Washington and Beijing. The U.S. continues to sell military weapons to the island nation even though it does not have diplomatic relations with Taiwan.

"They are definitely on a high at the minute and it's going to need to continue", Hamilton said during Thursday's press conference at the Silverstone circuit.

"I mean, it's the bumpiest track I've ever experienced, it's bumpier than the Nordschleiffe, which is 100 years old".

"The Ferraris look really competitive; I expect us to find more performance for tomorrow, but it is going to be really close".
