Mercedes is expected to show a strong comeback in French GP as the circuit will be more suitable for their car. So far it is Red Bull which looked to be a superior car to Mercedes this year. Circuit Paul Ricard has a mix of high-speed and low-speed corners. So far Mercedes doesn’t look like a dominant car this year the three wins they were able to produce were due to the strategic brilliance and some street smart driving by Lewis Hamilton. It will be an interesting battle between Lewis & Max in French GP

What is Break Magic And How does it Scrap Hamilton’s Chance in Azerbaijan GP?

Beak Magic is a setting that switches the brake balance and helps the car generate the important front tire temperature. Front tire temperature is very difficult to get in comparison to the rear tyres. The break magic setting which Mercedes has can be activated with a button that is located behind the steering of W12.

Mercedes Team Principal Toto Wolff explained what happened in Baku at the restart

“I’m so angry,” said Wolff. “[But] have no doubt. This is a team that is so strong… that we’re going to transform the anger into a positive force. We’re warriors and we’re going to come back.

[What Lewis did] can’t be called a mistake,” added Wolff, referring to Hamilton’s unfortunate Turn 1 incident. “It was just when Sergio came over… he touched a button and the brake balance changed, the brake balance went all the way forward and then obviously the car doesn’t stop.”

What to Expect from French GP 2021

Mercedes kept on struggling for pace in the practice races but Lewis managed to qualify ahead of Max Verstappen at Baku. Lewis took the lead early in the race as he overtook pole-sitter Charles Leclerc but lost his lead due to a slow pit stop caused by Gasly who was making pit entry just when Lewis was about to leave, it cost Lewis around 2 extra seconds. That extra seconds cost Lewis 2 places as he got jumped by Max and Perez. Lewis got another opportunity as race leader Max crashed and the race restarted after the red flag for a 2 lap dash. Lewis dived early in the lead but lost everything due to the lock-up at the first corner as a result of him flicking the brake magic, and dropping down to 15th.
