"This year we'll be racing on the Hamilton Straight for the first time, which will be a special moment for Lewis and the whole team.
"I can't think of another example of an active driver being honoured in this way by a circuit - it's testament to what Lewis has achieved in this sport so far in his career. But I know come Saturday and Sunday, his only focus will be fighting for maximum points in this colossal championship fight.
"Valtteri enters this weekend full of confidence: he performed strongly in both races in Austria, with two podium finishes, and is eager to continue making up ground in the drivers' championship table.
"Silverstone is an incredible track, fast and flowing, and one that we hope should suit our car better compared to Spielberg.
"We also have a few small updates on the car, and we look forward to seeing how they perform. We know we need to give Lewis and Valtteri the car to perform at Silverstone and everyone at Brackley and Brixworth is working flat out to deliver it."
