Interestingly, Hamilton said he informed the organisers and Mercedes of his decision not to attend the London event before the Austrian Grand Prix, suggesting that last weekend's disappointing outcome had no impact on his plans.

"The race was quite good, but I was behind Lance Stroll for over 40 laps, and I just wasn't able to pass him no matter how hard I tried!"

Besides the British fans are a well informed bunch, we know a good racing rivalry when we see one.

"Valtteri did a fantastic job [in Austria], so he thoroughly deserved to win", Hamilton said.

"I think Copse is going to be flat this year", he said. With Las Vegas, a return to Sin City was mentioned in passing by Bernie in March previous year - leading to this thorough investigation from Badger - but the interest has cooled now Ecclestone isn't pulling the promotional strings.

Lewis Hamilton has admitted for the first time that he believes his whirlwind lifestyle and decision to live away from Britain may have stalled his popularity in his homeland.

"I think it was just not positive for him".

"We left some's great fun to go so close to the people".

'But it's been a long time since I've had that in my hands and I want to have it again.

"Since the day I signed with Mercedes, what else can you put as a target?" "The crowd surfing thing was the greatest thing because it was the first time I really got to engage with the fans in a different way". But in the second stint, Valtteri started to get blisters on his tyres, and those of you on Twitter would have seen the picture I posted of Valtteri's vehicle underneath the podium with a band of blistering around the rear-left.

Don't' be confused by the hype that surrounded F1 London Live; enjoy it, yes, but remember it was a marketing event created to get more people to attend races and buy merchandise for the health of the sport.

The three-time world champion is now engaged in one of the most exciting racing seasons that has been seen for a long time, battling for every inch of track with Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel.

The popularity and reputation of the championship-leading Vettel, of Ferrari, has been severely tarnished in recent weeks while Hamilton has suffered a sequence of misfortunes to slip 20 points adrift. We arrived in Austria and there was such a lot of tension after the hearing into Sebastian Vettel's move in Baku; there was a lot of tension in the paddock between Vettel and Lewis, Mercedes and Ferrari.
