The head of “Mercedes” Toto Wolff believes that the team this season is hampered not only by problems with the galloping fireballs.
“We have a worse pitching situation, because we have it even in high-speed corners. On the track in Australia, we were quite competitive in the first and second sectors, and in the third completely lost everything. We lose about a second in a few turns.
Will the solution to the galloping problem win back this second? Of course not, but we can optimize other aspects related to the mass of the car and other things. We have to gradually add and better understand the car. I am sure that we will eventually improve, whether it is in two stages or five. My horizon is not limited to one stage or one year, rather, I try to look 10 years ahead. I want to create a competitive team, but there will be difficult seasons ahead, and the current one is one of them, ”Motorsport Week quotes Wolff as saying.
After three rounds of the 2022 season, Mercedes is second in the Constructors’ Championship with 65 points.
