Nico Rosberg believes the British Grand Prix could be the race that turns Mercedes' season around and sees it start to close on the top three teams again.
The German was encouraged that even after a poor first lap that dropped him into the midfield, he was still able to come back through to sixth place.
"I had a really good start but then I didn't do the best of jobs on the first lap so I fell back a bit. From then on the race really went well," Rosberg said in his personal video blog. "It was a great strategy and one [place] by one I just moved up and finished the race in sixth, so that was really good and I'm pleased with that.
"I think and hope that as a team this is the turning point and from now on we can steadily progress and close the gap to the front. That would be great. All in all I think it was a positive weekend going in the right direction."
Rosberg's teammate Michael Schumacher also showed good race pace as he recovered from a collision with Kamui Kobayashi and subsequent penalty to take ninth.
