F1 News: Toto Wolff Calling The Mercedes W13 A ‘Diva’ Is An “Understatement”

Mercedes has had serious issues so far this season. And while the Miami Grand Prix shone a glimmer of light over the Mercedes camp as they showed a slightly faster pace than previously, tension is still high as the W13 continues to underperform.

“We still don’t really understand why it’s so unpredictable,” George Russell said post-race.

“Toto [Wolff] has thrown the word ‘diva’ around a lot, but I think that’s a bit of an understatement because it’s so unpredictable, and when the thing starts bouncing in the corners…

“It’s a killer to drive.”

Despite these issues, George Russell has reliably finished in the top 5 each race – which no other driver has managed this season – whereas Hamilton hasn’t been so lucky.

Russell is adamant the pace of the car “is there”, the team simply, or maybe not-so-simply, needs “to try and unlock it”.

Will they manage to find some pace before the Italian Grand Prix? We’ll have to wait and see, but it would be a blast to have three constructors competing for the championship.

Alex started racing at a young age so certainly knows his way around a car and a track. He can just about put a sentence together too, which helps. He has a great interest in the latest models, but would throw all of his money at a rusty old French classic and a 300ZX. Contact: [email protected]
