Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff revealed that the silver arrows team did not rest in spite of the high advantage in the summer break. While the Brackley department could still afford some rest, the Brixworth department worked intensively on developing the Mercedes powertrain.
Lewis Hamilton leads the world with a solid lead in the World Cup after half a season 62. points in front of the closest pursuer, teammate Valtteri Bottas.
Despite his superiority, team boss Toto Wolff ensures that Mercedes will not let up until the end.
We run in both championships, but we don't have that feeling. While the boys at Brackley were able to get some rest, the boys at Brixoworth worked like crazy. We are aware that we have some problems with our drive unit and therefore have increased the intensity of the work. We are stepping up our development and focusing on each race individually.
