"The ultimate race circuit," Hamilton said, a five-time Silverstone winner. "This is a Grand Prix we can never lose.

"Formula 1 loses this and it loses so much of its essence."

Britain staged the first F1 world championship race in 1950 at Silverstone, while the Northamptonshire track has been the permanent home of the event since 1987.

"It feels to me 'not while I'm racing,'" Hamilton replied when the prospect of losing the race was put to him.

"Not while I'm here, I'll fight for it. This has the biggest crowd of the whole year, the biggest attendance of the season, and there's no way I would allow that to happen. We have to fight for it."

With a record-equalling five British GP victories in his career already, including four in succession between 2014 and 2017, Hamilton can take the record outright if he wins on Sunday.

"It has become the most anticipated event of the year for me and the one I enjoy the most," the Mercedes driver said.

"The fans are really what make the weekend and the atmosphere what it is."
