The team Mercedes It is going through one of the deepest crises since 2014. Yes, a team that is second in the constructors’ championship has a crisis. It seems incredible, but Mercedes used to all the fans to get out of the ‘bad times’ quickly and even with ease. However, this season it seems that it will not be like that. “We are not up to par”, They declared from the German brand.
The Azerbaijan Grand Prix seems to have been the last straw in the structure directed by Toto wolff. Mercedes finished without points at the Baku circuit, something that had not happened since 2018 Austrian Grand Prix. Although a team of this size should never be ruled out, from inside Mercedes they are already starting to get frustrated.
In the last hours the declarations of the head of the team on the track sounded very strong: Andrew Shovlin. The engineer was concerned about the series of problems that the team had in recent races. “We are not fast enough, we have made mistakes, it is difficult for us to change the tires and we have been on the defensive in free practice,” analyzed Shovlin, as confirmed by the newspaper Marca.
However, Shovlin harshly criticized Mercedes’ performance in recent races and does not look favorably on a comeback, should it continue like this. “We know the level it takes to win championships and we are not up to par at the moment so we need to regroup and perform again in the way we know we can,” he added.
Although the outlook is not encouraging, Shovlin sentenced the analysis assuring that the team has everything in its favor to get back on top. “We have the team, the car and the drivers to win this, but we have to be tough and honest with ourselves for the next few days. We have had days like this before and each time we have come back strong and we will seek to do that in France”.
