Hamilton predicts ‘difficult’ weekend for Mercedes

The British driver believes it will be a difficult weekend for Mercedes in Silverstone.

“We are aware of Ferrari and Red Bull,”

“They have taken a step forward, if we didn’t have any issue, we would have been in the fight in Austria,” said Lewis Hamilton.

“Silverstone will be closer, Ferrari were quick last year here,”

“It’s not going to be an easy weekend for us, Red Bull also have a new engine and I expect them to be better here,”

“Austria was a bit difficult for Mercedes, but I think here in Silverstone we will be closer, I hope we will have a better shot,” added Lewis.
