Martin Brundle believes Mercedes are “assessing their chances” at the British Grand Prix after Lewis Hamilton clinched a podium finish in Canada last weekend.

Mercedes has had a hot season so far, with Hamilton and George Russell already out of the championship fight after struggling with problems with their cars’ porpoise.

Ahead of the Canadian Grand Prix, a distraught Hamilton described his Mercedes as ‘so bad’ after a terrible practice session, while Toto Wolff previously described the car as a ‘sh*t’.

“The Mercedes team is so confusing for everyone at the moment, including himself,” Brundle wrote in his Sky Sports column. “Lewis said on Friday the car was undriveable, and indeed it looked that way, and he was keen to indicate that it was now a matter of making the best of a bad job for the remainder of the long season.

“In the race, both Mercs flew at almost top speed. To be realistic, if Charles Leclerc and Sergio Perez had shown normal qualifying and race performances and we hadn’t had two virtual safety cars then a real one, it probably would have been a solid fifth and sixth for the Merc boys.

“However there seems to be a good car under that welded body again and they believe in their chances at Silverstone which is next up.”
