Why Hill wasn't surprised by Ferrari's British GP performance

Ferrari just missed out on victory at the British GP as the team continues to show their disappointing 2020 campaign is well and truly behind them. However Damon Hill is curious to see whether that strong form will continue in Hungary.

One of the surprises coming out of the British GP was Ferrari's performance as Charles Leclerc just missed out on victory, however Damon Hill says he knew they would be competitive after their performance in FP1.

The Monegasque driver almost delivered Ferrari's first win since the 2019 Singapore GP only to be passed by Lewis Hamilton with three laps remaining. Despite the late disappointment, Hill felt that the hot conditions at Silverstone played into the Scuderia's hands.

"I did see it coming after the first session, which I did commentary for Sky on the Friday morning before the qualifying," Hill told the F1 Nation podcast. "I said, 'Can we just say Ferrari are doing quite well', and thankfully they actually maintained that through the weekend.

"They looked good and were more of a competition for McLaren. I think the hot temperatures helped them, speaking to them in the paddock they definitely felt that hotter conditions seemed to suit the way they used their tires.

"But Leclerc also used his brilliance to add that special little bit of advantage that they needed. All the way through, a good performance from Ferrari but they're still a little bit up and down. We don't know what's gonna happen in Hungary."

Natalie Pinkham added that Leclerc is keen to see how Ferrari perform at the Hungaroring, as another strong performance would mean they've finally turned the corner in terms of tyre wear.

"He [Leclerc] feels that if they put a strong performance in Hungary, then they'll feel like they're turning a corner," Pinkham stated. "They're still niggled and confused by Paul Ricard.

"They said, 'We still don't have the answers to Paul Ricard, we still don't understand why we were so bad there'. When you consider it's a similar track at Silverstone, and then they were brilliant at Silverstone..."
