But Hamilton’s preparations this week had been marred by former three-time F1 champion Nelson Piquet’s use of racist language against the 37-year-old.
Piquet is the father of Hamilton’s rival Max Verstappen’s girlfriend Kelly.
Verstappen is looking to secure another race win this year, as he closes in on a second consecutive F1 championship.
But Hamilton will be fighting for every corner at his home Grand Prix, as well Verstappen’s title rival this season Charles Leclerc.
