Lewis Hamilton celebrates his Silverstone win
Mercedes driver Hamilton was criticised for being the only driver absent from an event in London held by F1 earlier this week.
But Hamilton let the racing do the talking this weekend as he dominated in qualifying and then won today’s Grand Prix in style.
He said: “There’s no reason to question my preparations.
“I have more poles than most, I’m obviously building up the wins that I have and my performances are second to none.

“If you don’t know now that my preparation is mostly on point then I guess you never will.
"I’ll be training hard next week at different locations as I always do. I have work and will be focusing on that.”
Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff echoed Hamilton’s comments.
He explained: “I just can't comprehend why you need to destroy the hero before his home race with nonsense that is not even true.
“Some media have been hitting out at him for no reason and this is the consequence – he comes out stronger.”
