Mercedes have vowed to transfer their Baku anger into a strong result at this weekend’s French GP as the world champions, amid a fierce battle with Red Bull, bid to bounce back from their worst two-race stretch in nine years.

A gripping Formula 1 2021 campaign – which is playing host to competitive title duels between Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen, and Mercedes and Red Bull – intensifies from this weekend’s race at the Paul Ricard circuit in the south of France, the first of three Grands Prix in as many weeks.

Sky reports that the German side are expecting a tough challenge this time, but they remain ever focused and strong as a team. With so many points up for grabs, the France-Styria-Austria triple header is crucial for the title hopefuls and particularly Mercedes, who trail both championships and scored a meagre seven points from the Monaco and Baku street races; their lowest two-race haul since 2012.
