“This is my last race here at the British Grand Prix with this team [before moving to Ferrari], so I wanted to win this so much for them, because I love them, I appreciate them so much, all the hard work they’ve been putting in all over these years.

Put to Hamilton that he put on a “brave face” amid his victory drought, the seven-time world champion opened up further on the journey between his 103rd and 104th wins.

“It’s so tough, I think for anyone,” he commented. “I think the important thing is just how you continue to get up, and you’ve got to continue to dig deep even when you feel like you’re at the bottom of the barrel.
