Lewis Hamilton and George Russell both believe Mercedes can put in a good performance at Zandvoort, and “the wet weather definitely spices things up”.

Ahead of the Dutch Grand Prix, Lewis Hamilton said he believes Mercedes could perform well at the Zandvoort track.

“I think the wet weather definitely spices things up,” the Briton said.

“I think in Spa, which is not a strong circuit for us, when it rained we were performing quite well, so I’m hoping that that’s the case this weekend, if it is wet.

“But otherwise, I think the guys think that this is not far too different to Budapest and the car was a lot better for Budapest.

“And last year, even when the car wasn’t great, we were competing closer to the front – I think George got second and I was hunting down the lead at one point,” Hamilton concluded.

George Russell also believes Zandvoort will suit the W14.

“These type of circuits – the high downforce circuits – we tend to go well,” Russell said.

“Budapest we were fast. Here was probably one of our most competitive circuits along with Brazil [last season].

“But we don’t know what the weekend is going to bring. The weather, again, looks very up and down.

“But it doesn’t matter – whatever the conditions I feel we can have a strong weekend,” he concluded.
