Mercedes solve weakness, but Ferrari faster? Wolff has a theory...
Mercedes boss Toto Wolff has revealed that the Silver Arrows are in a “better space” with regards to their overheating engines, which cost them dearly during the high temperatures of the Austrian Grand Prix.
With temperatures set to soar again this weekend for the German GP, Wolff says the team has improved in this area. However, he still reckons Ferrari look strong due to their speed and grip round the corners at Hockenheim, following two free practice sessions on Friday.
“In terms of engine cooling, we're in a good space. It was not a problem anymore. Or, better space,” the Austrian told Sky Sports.
“I think it is the grip level. We have seen the Ferraris going very strong through the corners today, and that should have been us in the past. But, I think we are limited by surface overheating.
