Can Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes rebound in front of the British fans at Silverstone this weekend after a poor Austrian Grand Prix?
Can Hamilton and Merc recoup their losses?
With their poorest finish since the season-opening Bahrain Grand Prix, Mercedes left Austria.
Due to how their power unit operates at high altitudes and the fact that Austria is one of Hamilton’s weaker races – by his own high standards – Austria has historically been a bit of a bogey circuit for Mercedes over the years.
In contrast, Mercedes has been unbeatable at Silverstone over the years, winning all but two of the competitions held in Britain between 2013 and 2021.
The last of Hamilton’s eight victories at the British track came in 2021 after a first-lap collision with title challenger Max Verstappen.
With the exception of Austria, Mercedes is anticipated to significantly improve at the British GP in an effort to maintain their upward momentum.
They are a few points ahead of Aston Martin for second place in the constructors’ championship right now.
They should have a successful weekend thanks to an upgraded Mercedes and a track where Hamilton has excelled over the years.
Toto Wolff has already said that Mercedes will bring some major upgrades for the British GP which will help both the drivers bounce back to the front, let’s hope it’ll be good, and stay tuned in for more news on Formula One…
