The German team has a lot of problems with the new car.
After a very successful eight seasons, Mercedes entered the start of this year’s championship with big problems. The W13 lags far behind the Ferrari and Red Bull cars, so the problem with the cars bouncing on the tracks comes to the surface. The drivers of the German team managed to record a podium at the Bahrain GP, and the credit for that can be attributed to the Red Bull drivers who gave up, while Lewis Hamiton experienced a real disaster at the Saudi Arabia GP.
“We expected the car to bounce less on the track in Jeddah, since it is quite smooth. Still, we were wrong. We still do not understand how this phenomenon works. We are still learning. ” said one Merecdes engineer for the German site Auto Moto und Sport.
The German team is working hard to find a solution to these problems, because Mercedes wants to give its drivers the opportunity to fight Ferrari and Red Bull. Thus, according to this source, the team from Berkeley is preparing a new version of the last wing for the Australian Grand Prix.
