Hamilton to attend Thursday press conference

NEWS STORY
06/07/2016

Fresh from his victory in Austria, Lewis Hamilton is to join fellow Britons Jenson Button and Jolyon Palmer at tomorrow's official FIA press conference at Silverstone. The three will be joined Valtteri Bottas, Romain Grosjean and Spielberg hero Pascal Wehrlein.

While the press conference comes just days after the controversial race at the Red Bull Ring where Wehrlein scored his first point, and Button achieved his best result since Austin 2015, Hamilton is sure to be the centre of attention.

Other than that last lap clash with teammate Nico Rosberg, which has resulted in talk of team orders, the Briton is sure to be asked about Niki Lauda's claim that he trashed a hospitality room in Baku after crashing out of qualifying and subsequently lied about his relationship with his German teammate.

Friday's press conference could be equally entertaining with F1's very own scarlet pimpernel, Vijay Mallya, making his first race appearance of the year.

The Force India owner is the subject of a number of high-level investigations in India and has kept a very low profile in recent months.

Joining him will be under fire Ferrari boss Maurizio Arrivabene, along with Eric Boullier, Dave Ryan, Claire Williams and 'man of the moment', Mercedes boss, Toto Wolff.
