The French Grand Prix left both Mercedes AMG Petronas Formula One Team drivers Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas frustrated, the team threw a possible one-two away after poor strategic judgement.
Mercedes now find themselves slipping behind Red Bull Racing both in the drivers and constructors standings, with their title rivals proving they are seriously up for the fight this season.
The Silver Arrows don’t have to wait long to start the fightback, with this weekends Styrian Grand Prix hosting the second round of the triple header, a venue that Mercedes have had their ups and downs.
The weather is due to take a turn for the worse all weekend with heavy rain forecast, something which may not bother Hamilton who took an unbelievable wet pole at the circuit last season.
It is of course Red Bull’s home race this weekend and next, Mercedes Team Principal Toto Wolff would love nothing more than seeing the championship lead swing back into Mercedes hands at Red Bull’s home, Wolff’s team are locked and loaded into getting the top spot back.
