Lewis Hamilton is aiming to 'give Red Bull hell' during the Styrian Grand Prix.
Starting from the front row alongside polesitter Max Verstappen, Hamilton believes that Mercedes lack a slight bit of race pace to Red Bull and said after qualifying that he doesn't believe they have the pace to overtake. But, speaking ahead of the race, Hamilton said he's aiming to be a major headache for Verstappen.
"We've been on the front row together quite a bit. But it's gonna be a tough race. I mean, they're incredibly fast, but we're going to be trying to give them as much hell today as possible," Hamilton said on the pre-race track parade.
"Today's gonna be all about the mind and I think it's gonna be naturally driving style and then just communication with the team in terms of strategy.
"And, ultimately, pace we don't really know, we think they're slightly ahead on pace. But maybe because it's hot, we can be close. Fingers crossed!"
