Hamilton expects return to form at Silverstone

Lewis Hamilton managed yet another podium finish at the weekend, coming in third at Magny-Cours and extending his lead at the top of the Formula One championship.

Apparently not satisfied with such success, the 22-year-old sensation has insisted that he and his McLaren team can do better at Silverstone on July 8th.

It was the Ferrari team who dominated proceedings in France, with Kimi Raikkonen and Felipe Massa managing their first 1-2 finish of the season and making up some ground on Hamilton and Fernando Alonso in the drivers’ standings.

The Englishman said: "Ferrari are quick but I think we can take it to them at the next race. I think we’ll be competitive at Silverstone.

"The team are working very, very hard back at the factory to keep improving and I know that at the next race we’ll be quicker. So long as we keep going with reliability and consistency I don’t see why we can’t keep going for the win."

Hamilton now leads teammate Alonso by 14 points at the top of the championship after the Spaniard only managed a seventh-place finish in France.

Ferrari’s dominance at Magny-Cours means that Massa and Raikkonen now trail the tournament leader by 17 and 22 points respectively.
