1996 Formula 1 champion Damon Hill thinks Mercedes will score its first victory at the French Grand Prix, and even predicts a one-two!

On the F1 Nation podcast, Damon Hill talked about what he believes could happen at the French Grand Prix.

“It’s a smooth track, brilliant for aerodynamics,” Hill said.

“This may help Mercedes if they haven’t fixed their porpoising or they need to get that car low to the ground.”

Asked to give his prediction on who will win the race, the Briton said:

“I’m gonna go Lewis Hamilton. I think there’s going to be an incident. I think that first corner is a bit tricky, the little chicane thing.

“Let’s say Charles [Leclerc] loses his front wing, or Max [Verstappen] gets a puncture or something like that.

“Maybe even on pure pace, the Mercedes springs a surprise, because I think in their race trim Lewis has been on occasions very, very quick.

“It could even be Lewis first, George second and Carlos Sainz third.

“How about that?” Damon concluded.
