the championship of Formula 1 returns this weekend with the French Grand Prix to be held at the circuit Paul Ricard. Although the last race held in Austria took place more than ten days ago, in this period of time there have been some developments in the paddock to keep in mind, especially in view of the aforementioned event that will be held soon and in which Mercedes will take the final step to return to the top.

There are already three consecutive podiums that he chains Lewis Hamiltonan unequivocal sign that the performance of the silver car is being much more rewarding for the team than in the first months of the season. The illusion, finally, has returned to the box of Mercedes, but the thing does not stop there since on the French track Lewis wants to take the big step to once again maintain a dual battle with Max Verstappen and displace Charles Leclerc from that position.

According to reports from Planet F1, toto wolff and his team of engineers have introduced the latest technical modifications, which are the great hope of the team to be able to fight for victory, not only in Francebut in the rest of the commitments that remain to be disputed in 2022: “Our understanding of the W13 It grows with every lap and it’s encouraging to see that reflected in our development and results. Paul Ricard is a very different track and challenge. It has smooth tarmac and a wide range of corner types, along with long straights.
