The best wedding gift that the Brackley-based team could give the newlyweds is victory in Canada next weekend, something which’ll likely be a tall order.

The Germans have looked stronger since introducing their new concept at Monaco, with Hamilton and George Russell having both finished on the podium at the Spanish Grand Prix.

Hamilton finished second with Russell in third, securing the team’s first double podium since last season’s Brazilian Grand Prix.

Mercedes will be hoping to replicate their Spanish GP result in Canada, where the low-speed corners will be a real test of just how good the new concept is.

Hamilton did claim a podium at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve last season, with the 38-year-old being a seven-time race winner in Canada.

He holds the record alongside Michael Schumacher for having claimed the most wins in Montreal, with his last win at the venue coming in 2019.

A strong result in Canada will see Mercedes strengthen their P2 in the Constructors’ Championship, having overtaken Aston Martin in Spain.

Aston Martin are expected to introduce a strong upgrades package at the next round though, meaning they could be a team to keep an eye on.
