Hamilton to watch England game before GP

NEWS STORY
22/06/2018

England's World Cup opener against Tunisia got off to the best of starts with an early goal from Tottenham's Harry Kane, before pretty much 80 minutes of tedium - during which Tunisia equalised - and then a match-winner from Kane in extra-time.

Hmm... exciting start, over an hour of tedium and a flourish of excitement at the end... where have we heard that before?

Anyway, speaking as the French Grand Prix weekend got underway, Lewis Hamilton - an Arsenal fan - revealed that he will be watching England's second match - against Panama - ahead of Sunday's race.

“The game is on Sunday so it's going to be a little bit harder to focus on the race,” he told reporters.

"The game will be on in here, I'm sure my engineers will be trying to keep an eye both things at the same time, as will I.”

The news will no doubt give Ferrari added impetus to extend Sebastian Vettel's lead in the title race, Italy having failed to qualify for the tournament.

Though Germany did qualify, it lost its opening match to Mexico and faces Sweden on Saturday.
