Mercedes team boss Ross Brawn is predicting a strong finish for the Brackley-based Formula One team.
Lewis Hamilton won the Hungarian Grand Prix from pole position in the last F1 race before the summer break.
Seven pole positions in the last eight grands prix and three wins in the last five have made Mercedes the main challengers to Milton Keynes-based Red Bull.
"The first half of this season can be split into two halves again - the first five races and the second five races," Brawn told the team's YouTube channel.
"I'm very pleased particularly with the second five races because we have started to pick up some momentum, pick up some strength."
