The only race which the Silver Arrows have failed to win this season came in Austria, as Max Verstappen managed to get the better of Charles Leclerc to win at the Red Bull Ring. After their failure, several Mercedes figures including Lewis Hamilton, Valtteri Bottas, and Toto Wolff claimed that their cars could not handle the extreme heat on the track.
It presented the biggest obstacle Mercedes have faced in 2019, and with the German GP coming up this weekend set to have raising temperatures, too, there has been suggestions they could struggle again.
"The weather forecast predicts high temperatures, which were extremely challenging for us in Austria, so we must stay vigilant,” Wolff said.
