The Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff is satisfied with Mercedes’ progress over the Australian Grand Prix.

George Russell and Lewis Hamilton finished the race in Melbourne 3rd and 4th respectively. More than that, Mercedes scored most points this weekend. Wolff had a good feeling about the Silver Arrows’ improvement in the future.

“We are leaving Melbourne in a better state than when we arrived – more lessons learned, more data to analyze and more points on the board,” he said.

“Clearly we haven’t got the pace yet to challenge Ferrari and Red Bull, but we know where we need to seek performance. One factor that leaves me very optimistic for the future is the mindset and strength of the team.

“Everyone in the UK, in Stuttgart and in the travelling race team is pulling together every ounce of effort we have to tackle the performance gaps with determination and a deep hunger.”
