You will take the Mercedes F1 “decisive measures” As the team continues its struggle with a car that jumps terribly through the streets of Baku.
The defending constructors’ champions have shown signs of improvement in recent races, but the rebound is back in full force in Monaco (due to very heavy suspensions) and it’s the same story at high speeds in Baku.
“I can’t imagine we want to continue racing like this for the next four years,” Lance George Russell.
“Basic measures have to be taken, this cannot be sustained for too long and it slows down our performance considerably.
Team boss Toto Wolff acknowledges the ongoing problem.
“The drivers say they can barely see the circuit. And as far as lap time is concerned, it’s quite limited. We saw on Friday that the problems had not been resolved and now we have to take action. It is crucial not to postpone this problem for the second half of the season or even next year.”
Red Bull’s advisor, Dr Helmut Marko, said recently that he expects Mercedes to work around the problem this year and go back to the front.
“For the first time in 10 years, I hope Helmut is right” It’s wolf and riant.
However, developments that remain so small have not yet had an effect, leading Wolf to conclude that the solution may be “big interference”.
“I don’t think it has to do with our narrow sidewalls. The wider chassis will definitely help in terms of stiffness, but it’s not necessarily the front that’s the problem – it’s the rear.”
“You have to look at that and all the other issues like the dampers, the springs, the suspension kinetics – it’s kind of a hassle, but we’re doing all that work now.”
