Mercedes will be trying to cement their position at the top of the constructor’s championship at Canada this weekend.
Hamilton too would be hoping to get some breathing space at the top of the driver’s championship.
With a lot of teams awaiting engine upgrades in Canada it will be interesting to see which teams adapt to those updates better.
Toto Wolff is up for the battle in Canada and believes that Mercedes are in a good position than where they were last year.
However, Ferrari and Red Bull are too better off than last year and are posing a massive challenge to Mercedes’ title challenge.
Wolff also confirmed that all Mercedes powered cars will be getting their second power units this weekend.
“Canada also marks the one-third point of the 2018 season,” Wolff said.
“After six races, we can see that we are in a stronger position in both Championships than we were 12 months ago.
“But we also know that the battle is fiercer, with ourselves, Ferrari and Red Bull in the contention for race wins every weekend; there is not a moment to relax.
“We expect a number of teams to take their scheduled second Power Units this weekend, including all the Mercedes-powered cars, and we are pushing hard to bring more performance to the car as soon as possible.
“It will be a close-fought weekend – as it has been at every race so far this year. We’re looking forward to the challenge.” he added.
Are you ready for battle? 💪
