Mercedes may have lost for the first time this season but rest assured that they are still as strong as ever – they have not magically become slow. They will be heading to Barcelona this weekend with the will to prove who’s the boss. Last year, Hamilton led a Mercedes one-two with Verstappen finishing third. I would expect to see the exact same podium this year.
I would bet on Hamilton taking the pole this time but the interesting this will be if Sebastian Vettel can bounce back after all these bad races. Perez also comes back after being replaced by Hulkenberg in the past two races due to COVID-19 symptoms. Can he do better than Stroll or has the virus weakened him?
