The pair return to Silverstone a year on from their dramatic collision at Copse corner, which saw the Dutchman hit the tyre wall at 180mph.

Speaking to GP Racing, as per Autosport, the 2021 drivers' champion said ahead of this weekend's race: 'Of course, the crash wasn't nice, but I love the track.

'I love going there. It's [a] really good atmosphere with Formula 1, and we're going really quick around there.

'So I don't have any hard feelings. And I also think very easily I can put these things aside. Of course, it wasn't nice what happened, but at the end of the day, you deal with it.

'It wasn't a nice impact for me personally, but we go out there again and try to win of course.'

Hamilton, who narrowly missed out on the championship to Verstappen after last season's dramatic title finale, is nowhere near contention as it stands -  98 points off the Red Bull
