London:

McLaren's Lewis Hamilton may be fourth in the driver standings, languishing 89 points behind table-topper Sebastian Vettel of Red Bull. The Briton however is confident of a strong finish in his home race at the Silverstone circuit next weekend.


The 26-year-old has been in the news more for his off-track comments rather than his performance in the car but Hamilton was quoted by press agencies as saying that he wants to put up a strong fight for the British fans and spectators. "What we really want is a one-two - think what that would do for British sport and the fans."

Refusing to admit that the McLaren's challenge for the title is almost over, Hamilton said that the battle rages on and that nothing can be said for sure until the final race. "It's never over until it's over. We're only coming up to halfway, and if we were to win all the other grands prix then we can still win the championship. There's still a big gap but nothing is impossible," he said.
