Lewis Hamilton believes that Mercedes need to quickly sort out the problems with the W13 car.
Mercedes struggle at the start of the season as porpoising has affected the car’s performance. Hamilton admits that he is not concerned much about the issues at the moment, but thinks that they need to be solved quickly.
“We have issues and we’re fighting to fix them. There’s a lot of potential within our car. We’re just trying to work as hard as we can to rectify them as quick as possible,” he said.
“I have no doubt that I’ve got the best group of people behind me in order to come up with solutions and fix it and extract performance.
“So, I don’t currently feel too stressed. But I want to get in the fight as soon as possible. We need to move fast forward as fast as we can.”
Hamilton has also revealed that Mercedes put a big amount of effort to improve the situation.
“A huge amount of work has gone on in the past three days.
“[I’m] very proud of my team for just keeping their heads down, staying focused, churning through the crazy amounts of data that there is.
“We’re aware of the problems we have, but in terms of what’s causing it, we’re just working through trying to figure that out and how we can rectify it without losing performance.
“From such a short time between races, there’s not a huge difference here this weekend.”
