Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff doubts that the upgrade package they will bring to the US GP will significantly improve their performance.

Mercedes are set to update the W13 car for this weekend’s United States GP. The changes concern aerodynamics and the weight of the car. Wolff hopes the upgrades will help the Silver Arrows get closer to the leaders but doubts they will dramatically improve performance.

“Our final update package of the year will be brought to Austin,” he said.

“It won’t drastically change our fortunes, but we’re hopeful it will bring us a step forward and closer to the frontrunners.

“We want to end this strongly, and the results of the last two races only make us more determined to do so.

“We need to use the limited track time available to make strides forward for this season and generate as much leaning as we can in the development race for 2023.

“Those two aims are one and the same.

“The Circuit of The Americas is a challenging track that often produces great racing, so we’re excited to be back this year.

“Hopefully [we can] put on a great show for the fans.”
