Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton is returning to the Top Gear test track on this Sunday night's show on BBC Two in a bid to become the fastest professional on the circuit.

Hamilton, who clocked up a time of 1 min 44.7 secs in 2007, is trying to beat F1 champion Sebastian Vettel's record of 1 min 44.0 secs.

The BBC said: "This time the track is dry and Lewis is taking no prisoners in his attempts to smash the lap record."

You can see if Hamilton achieves his goal on Sunday February 17 at 8:00pm on BBC Two.
