"I think Silverstone was a real empowering weekend and kind of from then it's sparked a forest fire within me and I think that's hopefully reflecting on my driving and when I'm working with my guys". "I'm looking forward to it, I offered to do it, so I'm looking forward to that - kind of". "I respect it, appreciate it and I am happy". Here are our picks for the race.
Numbers, however, show that Hamilton's mission won't be easy, as the four-time world champion Vettel has been the most successful active driver at the three upcoming races in Singapore, Malaysia and Japan, with four wins in each.
The three-time world champion thrived in difficult conditions during qualifying for the Italian Grand Prix, battling through the rain to record a time which was a comfortable 1.1 seconds faster than his next closest challenger.
As drivers gathered at the front of the grid for the national anthem ahead of the race, air force jets flew low overhead emitting a trail of smoke in the green, white and red colors of the Italian flag.
Hamilton led the race from lap 1. We just didn't have the pace.
"At the moment you can say that Mercedes has an edge", he admitted. We have gone from strength to strength.
The Finn was involved in a fantastic battle in the opening stages with Valtteri Bottas, but the Mercedes soon asserted their dominance.
"You come into a season and there's certain decisions you make in your life on the way and not necessarily knowing how they are going to impact on your future or how you perform, but all with the goal of performing as I have been".
"So yes we had a Monza package, but it wasn't down to the low downforce configuration". "He's had that smile on his face all year long, being that he's had that title lead". I will take that.
"This morning, based on the Friday long runs, we thought they would be closer, considering their Spa performance". We have learned a lot from the past.
And he is sure that he can taste glory in Singapore for a third time, having won there for Mercedes in 2014 and McLaren in 2009.
