"He is going to try to win and I'm going to try the same. I expect nothing but the best from him," said Hamilton.

Hamilton, who beat Vettel by 0.239 seconds in qualifying, added: "They were very quick, it was quite close and with more sessions he maybe had the potential to get closer."On the long runs they are always relatively close but I have put myself in the best position and I hope I can hold that off the start."Then it's about managing tyres to make sure you hit stint lengths."The Ferraris are going to be quick. They always are in the race. He got a better start than me in the last race and I plan to get a better one than him."Every pole counts. When you are not on pole it makes the weekend little tougher. It doesn't mean it's impossible, but starting on pole gives you a different outlook at the start of the race."Naturally, you still have to do the job. You still have to get off the start and then manage it. I am hoping for a close race like we had in Spa - but we will see."
