“This gives us hope as a team and shows that there is potential in the car, if we get the setup right,” said Hamilton, who finished ahead of his teammate George Russell.
Hamilton came out of his Mercedes a week earlier with pain and difficulty after the race in Baku. Mercedes is struggling with the bounce of the car this year. “It was a night and day difference from last week. We still bounce, but it was much less than in Baku. It was possible to live with this. But it remains the case that the sport, but also we as a team, have to look at it.”
