Lewis Hamilton desperate to dominate British Grand Prix

Lewis Hamilton admits that he is desperate to end a run of five races without a victory at the British Grand Prix.

Lewis Hamilton has declared his intention to dominate the British Grand Prix from start to finish this weekend as he prepares for the race in front of his home supporters.

Recent disappointments have seen Hamilton fall 29 points behind Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg in the World Championship standings, but he is hoping to go one better at Silverstone following his climb from last place to finish fourth a year ago.

"I'm definitely gunning for Silverstone," the 29-year-old told The Guardian. "Last year I was more hopeful than ever since I won at Silverstone.

"It was definitely gutting to not win, to not bring it home for the country and for the fans, although I came through from last to fourth. We have another chance this year and I'll be doing absolutely everything to make sure we're in front."

Hamilton has not recorded victory at Silverstone since his title-winning season of 2008.
