The German team does not currently provide the same performance as Red Bull and Ferrari.
Since the beginning of the season, Mercedes has suffered the most from bouncing cars caused by the new airport rules, but the new parts that were brought to Barcelona believed that this problem was solved. However, things happened again in Monaco and even worse in Baku. Now, the head of all the engineers on the team, James Vowles, explained the complexity of this situation as other difficulties arose.
So in addition to jumping on the W13 routes, he started to shake, which certainly gave an extra headache for everyone.
“The car was lowered much lower to fix the jumping problem.” said Volwes. “That’s why everything is packed differently, so when it all comes across a stronger force, then the phenomenon of the car shaking occurs.”
