James Vowles left Mercedes to join Williams as team principal for 2023. He was cheered by his team, but Helmut Marko thinks there is tension now at Mercedes.

It was announced a few days ago that Vowles would leave Mercedes and become Williams’ new team principal. Toto Wolff and other members of the staff cheered and congratulated him for the move, while also wishing him luck.

However, Vowles seems to bring with him some Mercedes engineers, so Marko believes this has left a tense atmosphere inside Mercedes’ base at Brackley.

“I have completely different information. Vowles left for his own freedom and even takes good technicians with him.

“My sources tell me that is why the atmosphere in Mercedes is tense.”

Despite this, Marko is still certain that Mercedes will be Red Bull’s number-one opponent for the title fight in 2023.

“I still believe that Mercedes will be our biggest challenge when it comes to defending the title.”
