Mercedes boss Toto Wolff has promised Lewis Hamilton and George Russell a “significantly” better car for the Spanish Grand Prix in Barcelona, following an unconvincing start to the season for the “silver arrow” that can not be worn at the speed of Ferrari and Red Bull.
Last week’s race in Miami seemed to bring a turnaround in form after Russell reached the fastest lap in Friday’s second practice session, but then failed to qualify for second place to finish fifth ahead of Hamilton.
Before the first “double weekend”, in which Barcelona is driven on the streets of Monte Carlo, Wolf says that there will be “significant” approvals.
“We will do a few experiments with the floor of the car, and then in Barcelona we will bring a lot of changes that we hope will bring a solution. We are not fast enough in the qualifiers and for now we are far behind Red Bull and Ferrari. “We have to find a solution, and on Friday in Miami we showed that we are capable of such a thing,” Wolff said in an interview with Auto Motor und Sport.
