Barcelona is one of the places where sheer performance, the aero package and the ability to get the balance and be good with the tires is crucial, which is why the Red Bulls have been so dominant, at least that of Max [Verstappen] the summer ! So I think there are encouraging signs for Mercedes » thus explained Damon Hill in comments reported by NextGen-Auto.
