Sky Sports expects Mercedes to join the fight with Ferrari and Red Bull at the front of the field at the French Grand Prix.

A lot of Formula 1 observers and experts expect Mercedes to be competitive at the French Grand Prix.

Sky Sports says the race “has long been touted as an opportunity for Mercedes, Lewis Hamilton and George Russell”.

“There is also every chance it is a three-team battle at the front rather than two – with Mercedes expected to be competitive again this weekend,” Sky Sports’ race preview reads.

“Although Mercedes have struggled with bouncing and outright pace this season, they have enjoyed their best weekends at smooth circuits similar to Paul Ricard.

“At Silverstone for the British GP, the track layout as well as vital upgrades saw Mercedes fight for the win for the first time in 2022.

“The reigning eight-time world champions struggled somewhat in Austria – but still were in the battle for pole and scored big points on the Sunday – and have always been quick at the French GP, a race that has long been touted as an opportunity for Mercedes, Lewis Hamilton and George Russell.

“A title challenge may well be a bridge too far given their deficit, but can Mercedes compete for their first win of the season?

“Will we have a three-team, six-driver fight at the French GP?” Sky Sports concluded.
