Where Mercedes went too far with its 2024 F1 car

Creator: THE RACE    Category: Sport    Added: 03 Jun 2024

Twelve months ago, Mercedes abandoned its Formula 1 car concept with a major upgrade package introduced at the Monaco Grand Prix.

Out went the infamous zero-sidepods in favour of a more conventional approach. Yet one year on, it’s still struggling. That’s because in fixing its old problems, it has created some new ones that need to be tackled.

That’s why not only is it not close to winning races, but it’s also being thrashed by one of its customer teams.

Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff calls McLaren’s turnaround over the past year - using the same engine - “a fantastic recovery story”, transforming it from also-ran to podium regular and grand prix winner.

So what of Wolff’s team’s rather less meteoric recovery story? And if McLaren has turned things around so spectacularly, why hasn’t Mercedes?

05:56 No "zig-zagging"
06:56 Onward to 2026
