Hamilton slams Sunday sports clashes

Lewis Hamilton has hit out at the sporting clashes that will come to a head on Sunday.

On British GP race day, other major sporting finals including the cricket world cup, Wimbledon and a hill stage of the Tour de France will also take place.

"I don’t understand why the organisers put the race on the same day as all these other big events. I really don’t understand it," the Mercedes driver said.

"This is such a special weekend, it needs all the focus of the whole country and just not a small amount," Hamilton added at Silverstone.

"I think people will be switching between channels on Sunday, not sure what to watch."
