Andrew Shovlin states that Mercedes are hopeful to bring the upgrades that can help deal with their issues for the Miami GP.
Porpoising keeps affecting Mercedes’ performance and the Silver Arrows are looking for a solution to fix the problem. According to Shovlin, they plan to bring the upgrades package to Miami next week.
“We know where we are at the moment, we know that gap that we need to make up to get where we want to be, but as a team, we are very focused on the engineering challenge that this is, and it is a very interesting engineering challenge,” the Mercedes trackside engineering director said in the team’s post-race weekend video.
“[These are] problems that are new to us, that we need to get on top of and understand and there is an enormous amount of energy back here going into that, but day by day we are moving forward, we are learning more about it and hopefully, soon, maybe as soon as Miami, we can start to bring some parts to the car that will hopefully give us an indication on whether we are moving in the right direction.
“We are not expecting to solve this overnight. But if we can get a clue that we are going in the right direction, that we really got to the bottom of what is going on, then we will be quite pleased that we are just moving on the right path.”
