Meanwhile, taking to Twitter, Mercedes uploaded an image of Hamilton with Neymar and Mbappe from their official account and hilariously mocks PSG forwards with a famous footballing phrase, ‘can they do it on a cold night in stoke.’

A phrase made famous by commentator Andy Gray who reckoned Lionel Messi would struggle to score against a Stoke team in their home ground on a “cold winter night”.

“Reliability versus performance is always the fine line that you need to get right, and as I said before, DNFing obviously is a no-go for the championship, and nobody, neither us nor our competitors can afford a zero-point race weekend,” he added.
