Lewis Hamilton 'unlucky' in George Russell duel as Mercedes veteran backed to hit top form

“In Canada, the car was clearly more competitive. If you look at the last stint of the race, Lewis and George were together and on very similar tyres, and Lewis pulled away six seconds in the last stint of the race. For me, that was the first sign of Lewis getting a bit happier and more comfortable in this car.

“Silverstone is a smooth, high-speed circuit and it should help Mercedes. The battle between the two of them is going to be a fascinating subplot to the overall Grand Prix this weekend.

“They need a bit of luck to get the win. They have the best driver line-up at the moment, and if other teams slip up a bit in terms of strategy or the British weather plays a part, they could get the win. As a pure race, they’re probably fighting for a podium. In a straight fight, the win is probably slightly beyond them still.”
