Lewis Hamilton says he will approach the first Formula 1 Qualifying Sprint Race at the British Grand Prix “with my head up, and just all guns blazing”.

Today Formula 1 will feature its first ever Qualifying Sprint Race that will determine the starting grid for the main race tomorrow.

While many are suggesting the drivers will be very careful in the Sprint Race, which could make it boring, Lewis Hamilton says he will be taking a different approach.

“With my head up, and just all guns blazing,” Hamilton said when asked how he intends to approach the Sprint Race.

“I need to bring out the lion tomorrow and give it everything. [It] starts with the start so we’ll be practicing, and then we’ve got the long run practice in FP2.”

Lewis was then asked if he intends to “bring it home” and win his home race.

“I hope so! I mean, passing the Red Bull is not easy. And so it really helps to be where we are. But we’ve got to get off the line.

“And we’ve still got so many things and obstacles ahead of us. But the sprint race is going to an interesting one.

“So, I think I got the car where I need it, so we’ll see,” concluded the Briton.
