Lewis Hamilton hopes to make up for "lost" practice

Mercedes's Lewis Hamilton hopes that he will have chance to recover lost track time in the final practice session for the British Grand Prix.

Lewis Hamilton has revealed that he will change his plan for the final practice session at the British Grand Prix after suffering a mechanical failure this afternoon.

The Briton finished the second practice with the fastest lap time, but missed the final part of the session when his Mercedes came to a halt at the end of the pit lane, leaving him without any race simulation laps.

The 2008 world champion told Sky Sports News: "I lost the long-run part of the session and so lost 20 or so laps of finding out how the car feels on heavy fuel loads.

"But I can change around and compromise some of my running tomorrow and get in a long run.

"I don't know about overheating, whether it's the front or rears, where I need to put the brake settings for the race, the diff settings, but I'm a professional, I'll do it."

Hamilton has finished on the podium at his home race three times during his F1 career, winning at Silverstone in 2008.
