Valtteri Bottas has spoken about the factor that helped Mercedes increase performance.


  • Bottas admits that Mercedes has worked on adjusting car balance.
  • The Finn reveals that the team has not had any major upgrades lately.

What he had to say:

  • “I think the biggest issues we had with the car was the rear end being quite unstable and overall just lacking grip compared to last year.”
  • “So I think we’re just able to balance the car a bit better recently. That’s the main feeling, that it’s a bit more stable and more driveable.”
  • “During the mid-season or beginning of the season, we did have some upgrades, but lately not. It’s been just purely working the set-up, working the balance and getting it more more driveable.”
