Toto Wolff Reveals Harsh Reality for Mercedes: Trapped in ‘Vicious Cycle’
Mercedes team principal, Toto Wolff, described the team’s performance during the Belgian Grand Prix as a “vicious cycle” due to their ongoing struggle with bouncing issues at high speeds. The aerodynamic phenomenon known as “porpoising” has been a challenge for Mercedes, and despite rule changes to ride height, the team is still grappling with it this season.
In Sunday’s race at Spa, Lewis Hamilton managed a fourth-place finish, while George Russell secured sixth place. However, both drivers found it difficult to make significant progress on the frontrunners due to the car’s bouncing behavior on high-speed straights.
