However, the appearance of Red bull and of Max verstappen made me unable to master the Formula 1, as he has been doing for the last four years with the team Mercedes.
Second place at the Styrian Grand Prix was a great result. However, Verstappen dominated the race from end to end in the Red bull ring and it proved that the Austrian brand’s car is the most complete on the Formula 1 grid. That is why Hamilton made a very special request to Mercedes for the upcoming championship dates.
“We have to find performance, we have to bring some improvements, we have to push, I don’t know if it is in the rear wing, an improvement in the engine, but we have to find some performance ”, launched Hamilton after finishing second the Styrian Grand Prix, something that worried Mercedes engineers and showed the weaknesses of the team.
However, the director of the German team not only denied Hamilton’s words, but also released statements that suggest that Mercedes is already losing the battle with Red Bull. “We don’t have the strongest package and we have already stopped development by 2021”Toto Wolff confirmed to the press this Monday.
Given the refusal of the request by Hamilton, Wolff explained that all improvement efforts will be placed in the new regulations. “We are going to have to exploit what we have, do the best job possible, understand the setups, the tires and whatever performance is on the car. But it will not be easy this year, ”added the former Austrian driver.
