There was a huge problem for Mercedes at the Belgian Grand Prix due to bouncing issues. As a result, many people are asking if the new upgrade has 'restored' the problems that Mercedes had in the past. Toto Wolff, the head of Mercedes, gave an answer to this question.
Toto stated that he would be analyzing what happened in the coming period so that he could give the right answer when the time comes. “We’ve got to analyse it,” Wolff said, as quoted by crash. “There is so much hard work that’s been going on for the upgrade.
The aero guys, and the operations to deliver that upgrade, you’ve got to take your hat off to them. I think the floor could have been the reason why we’ve been bouncing, but we’re going to see it in the data.
And maybe there’s something that we need to find, because I still believe the direction that we’re going now is the right one”.
George Russell reacts: We suffered
In the same way, George Russell was disappointed after the race, since he had to deal with the same problem again.
The fact that these things are still a problem for them today in this day and age is something Russell is disappointed about. It is the young driver's hope that a solution will be found in the coming period and that everything will be made right as soon as possible.
“We suffered with a huge amount of bouncing,” he continued. “A number of teams did, maybe not as severe as we did, but still obviously it is a bit of a shame to see that, as a sport at the pinnacle [of motorsport], the majority of teams are still struggling with bouncing. I hope something can be solved in that regard in the future”.
