The head of the German team was not happy with the edition at the Belgian Grand Prix.
Lewis Hamilton had to end the race at Spa-Francochamps in the first lap due to an incident with Fernando Alonso, while George Russell chased Carlos Sainz until the very end for the last place on the podium. However, even they could not match the drivers of Red Bull.
“You can’t be happy when you see Verstappen alone in his own world. We have to see how we can improve the car. The difference is too great. Well, that’s not so great for us. We should have been more competitive on this track.” said Mercedes boss Toto Wolff.
When asked by journalists whether this result will affect the morale of the team at the factory, the first man of Mercedes stated that they are already focused on 2023
“That’s the reality. The car is difficult to drive and has no pace during one lap. We have to work on it. We will set our goals not only for the next few races but also for the next season.” he added.
