Hamilton is unhappy with a clash with Wimbledon and Cricket World Cup

The British Grand Prix at the same time as the Cricket World Cup and Wimbledon betting is a decision that Lewis Hamilton "cannot understand".

Lewis Hamilton criticized the decision to schedule the British Grand Prix on the same day as the Cricket World Cup finals and men's singles at Wimbledon.

Sunday's race will have to compete with two other major public attention events; when the lights go out at Silverstone, England or Australia will enter New Zealand at Lord & # 39; s while two from Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Roberto Bautista Agut end up at Center Court.

Reigning Formula 1 champion Hamilton is aiming for a sixth triumph record in his home race, but its timing in the 2019 calendar is a source of great frustration for him.

"What I don't understand is why the organizers organized the race on the same day as all these other major events. I really don't understand," Hamilton told a press conference.

"But I hope they will set this up in the future – this is such a special weekend that it needs the focus of the entire country. I think people will switch channels on Sunday, not sure what to do see.

"Of course I come here, there are quite a few of us British but we come here to raise the flag and make the country proud, so I'm just going to try and play my part."

It was announced Wednesday that Silverstone, which hosted the first F1 race in 1950, will remain on the calendar for at least 2024, and Hamilton expressed his delight in the news.

He said, "It was a good surprise to hear that they had signed again. I mean, it wasn't necessarily a surprise, I knew it would happen.

"It is clear that Formula 1 cannot exist without the home of motorsport, the British Grand Prix.

"I am really happy. It is great for the fan base that we have here and to see it continue to grow in the coming years."
