George Russell has revealed that Mercedes are still unable to find a solution for porpoising.

Porpoising is among the problems Mercedes are facing at the start of the season. That affects the W13’s performance and does not allow the Silver Arrows to compete for race wins at the moment. According to Russell, the issue continues in Melbourne.

“We’re definitely porpoising pretty badly,” he said.

“Into turn 9, it’s probably the most severe I’ve experienced, but I think it’s something we just have to deal with for the time being. We believe that’s the fastest way around the track. But maybe it’s not.

“We need to keep digging into the data and understand. We’ve gone from left, right and center with the set-up, and all have resulted in a similar outcome.

“So we need to try and get on top of things.”
