Lewis Hamilton: Red Bull will be hard to beat

Lewis Hamilton has said that Red Bull will make victory difficult in today's British Grand Prix, despite qualifying in pole position.

He told BBC Sport: "Red Bull have been dominant throughout the year. We are getting closer but I don't feel we are there yet. We'll do what we can. We're in the best position to fight."

Hamilton said: "Undoubtedly it's going to be tough to keep Sebastian [Vettel] behind us".

""I'm going to be pushing, giving my all, as I'm sure Nico [Rosberg, Mercedes team-mate] will, to finish up ahead."

"We're just going to put as much positive energy as we can towards it and we'll do the best job we can", he added.

Lewis Hamilton's plans to build 'museum' for his trophies

Lewis Hamilton has revealed that he is considering building a museum to house his huge collection of trophies.

“I have been thinking to build a museum. It was my dad’s idea. It would be cool to have somewhere – in Stevenage or London, I don’t know – where we could have one of the cars from every year that I have driven and have the trophies up so that people can see them”

“Or I am going to have to build a house big enough because I have hundreds of trophies – I must have at least 500,” the 2008 world champion told the Guardian.

Ahead of Sunday’s opening Formula one race, the 28-year-old also revealed he is excited to welcome “new member of the family” to his team - his new bulldog, Roscoe.

2013 is dawning as a year of change with a new team and a new dog, and a £20m private jet to help the 28-year-old get around the world.

The Mercedes driver said, “having the plane gives you a lot of time back in your life."
