Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton believes Red Bull still hold a slight pace advantage over his team heading into the Portugese GP weekend.
Despite winning the opening round of the 2021 season in Bahrain, there was a sense that Red Bull started the year with a quicker car. Hamilton took pole for the Emilia Romagna GP but was beaten in the race by Max Verstappen.
With just a solitary point, courtesy of scoring the fastest race lap at Imola, separating Hamilton from the chasing Verstappen, the reigning World Champion was firm in his belief that the rival team hold the advantage.
"The Red Bulls are still ahead of us on performance," Hamilton told media, including RacingNews365, ahead of the Portuguese GP.
"But I think we've done quite a good job, generally, over the first two races, and I think that we have a long way ahead of us."
