Russell takes a deep dive into Mercedes’ issues

After a stage in Bahrain and Australia, Mercedes’ performance seems extremely shaky, either clear from midfield, or stuck at the back of the pack. Russell’s teammate, Lewis Hamilton, suffered a loss during the Grand Prix, eventually finishing 14th.

“We have these overall limits with bounce and we know that but equally we are struggling with the tire warm-up. It has been the coldest race weekend so far this year and it has been a bit of a trend. We made progress in Bahrain but slowed down in qualifying.” Britt explained.

“I think it’s because Bahrain was the hottest and roughest. So, no problem with the tires overheating, then we went to Jeddah, it was still hot but the track was smooth and Melbourne was a bit cold. It was very cold here and that’s where you see McLaren, Alpines, Haas coming in there but struggling in the race. We need to find a better compromise, we had a strong result but we are very low on the grid Were starting out.”
