Lewis Hamilton makes plans for Moscow final with England on his mind
• “I’ve booked my day off for next Sunday,’ says Mercedes driver
• Hamilton focused on extending dominance at British GP
Lewis Hamilton has admitted he is already planning ahead to ensure he will be able to attend the World Cup final, should England make it. The British driver is passionate in his support for the team and even jokingly broached the possibility of taking a fine rather than attending the post-qualifying press conference at the British Grand Prix on Saturday, which will begin just after England’s quarter-final with Sweden has kicked off.
Hamilton goes into the race as favourite, with Mercedes once again expected to be strong at Silverstone where they and Hamilton have dominated for the past four years. The British driver is eager to make the most of his chances after he failed to finish at the last round in Austria and now trails his title rival, Sebastian Vettel, by one point. While he is focused on the task at hand, he said he wants to be able to follow England to Moscow.
