Hamilton amazed by support

A remarkable 10,000 fans were on hand to watch the final day of a three-day test programme at Silverstone as the teams attempted to put the finishing touches to preparations for the race.

Hamilton, who delighted his army of followers by setting the fastest time of the week with a lap of one minute 19.170seconds, said: "At lunchtime, there were so many people waiting outside my garage, it was insane!."

The McLaren driver added: "Driving into Silverstone this morning felt really cool,

"I couldn't believe how many fans were at the track so early in the morning. They're pretty special, the most dedicated F1 supporters in the world.

"At the start of the day I was really eager to get out on the track. This place is so super-fast, it feels amazing in an F1 car."
