Mercedes's Lewis Hamilton insists that he will be taking part in the German Grand Prix despite being left in pain following a crash in qualifying.

Lewis Hamilton has insisted that he will be racing at the German Grand Prix tomorrow despite being involved in a heavy collision in qualifying.

The Briton's Mercedes suffered a brake disc failure, causing him to spin into the barrier at high speed at the Hockenheimring this afternoon.

After undergoing medical checks, he told Sky Sports News: "I'm in a little bit of pain but that is what happens when you have a crash like that, I think they said I pulled something like 30G. But even if something is broken I will still be racing tomorrow."

Having been unable to post a time in Q2, Hamilton will start from 16th on the grid.
