“Very windy. It’s often windy here at Silverstone," Hamilton told F1TV. "I think the wind is what helps it become the best track in the world. The characteristics that you have – tailwind, crosswind. It’s pretty phenomenal.
"I love driving this track. This is the best track in the world for me," he added when speaking to Sky Sports.
"With these new cars, actually crosswind is a lot worse. If you have wind coming from the side, it’s actually worse for the balance of the car.
"When you’re going into Stowe, down the Hangar straight into Stowe, the headwind you just have the best downforce through that corner and it’s unbelievable to drive."
