Andrew Shovlin reveals that Mercedes works on improving some problematic aspects.

Why it matters: Mercedes has arguably the most difficult season in hybrid era as well as fights with Red Bull for both titles.


  • The Mercedes trackside engineering director believes tripleheaders add more stress because of amount of time required for post-race analysis.
  • Mercedes wants to resolve issues and looks forward to competing at the Russian GP.

What he had to say:

  • “There is no doubt that tripleheaders are tough because you are preparing for one race, then you are doing it, then you are trying to do the work following up from the race while preparing for the next one, and in effect we are working over 20 days in a row without a day off. Everyone is feeling that a bit.
  • “We’ve got a list of problems that we need to get stuck into, areas we can improve, possibilities for development, so those are all pretty busy areas and then also we’ve got to look ahead to that next race in Russia.”
