Why British GP on same day as WC, Wimbledon finals: Hamilton

Silverstone (England), July 12 (TIWN) Formula 1 star Lewis Hamilton is unhappy with the fact that the British Grand Prix is being held on the same day as the final of the ICC World Cup and men's final at the Wimbledon.

The Mercedes driver said he "didn't understand why they put the race on the same day as all these big events".  "It [the British GP] is such a special event and it needs all the attention," he said. "A lot of people will be switching between channels on Sunday.  "We all try to do the country proud and I am just going to try to do my bit."  Hamilton is bidding for a record sixth British Grand Prix victory, to move him clear of the mark he currently holds with Jim Clark and Alain Prost.  The five-time world champion has won the race four times in the past five years and starts the weekend as strong favourite on a track that is expected to suit his Mercedes car.
