Mercedes: ‘Important not to panic now’


The Mercedes Formula 1 team was seen as the big favorite for the victory in Great Britain, but the German racing stable does not yet look particularly strong. However, Andrew Shovlin does not want the team to suddenly worry about a lack of speed.

This tells the chief engineer of the reigning world champion after the Friday sessions. “We don’t want to panic and come up with an exaggerated reaction, because the weather conditions will be very different tomorrow. The car didn’t perform perfectly in hot weather, but we might be faster when it’s cooler. We should therefore not make too drastic adjustments, because this car is just fast if we adjust it properly. ”

In addition, Shovlin believes that Mercedes should not be mistaken that Lance Stroll and Alexander Albon were faster than Valtteri Bottas and Lewis Hamilton at the end of the day. After all, on Friday you never know what others are doing. Well, it seems as if we don’t have the advantage that we had in Hungary, but at the same time there is nothing wrong with the W11, ‘concludes the British engineer. (Photo: Mercedes AMG F1 Media)
