Mercedes’ F1 Upgrade Impact Dulled by Handling Woes, Shovlin Reveals Future Plans for W15

Published

Concerning explanation for the limited effectiveness of Mercedes F1 improvements disclosed

Andrew Shovlin from Mercedes has shared details on the team's most recent enhancements and their actual effect.

Mercedes has disclosed that the full benefits of their upgrades will not be evident until they address the existing "handling issues" with the W15.

Mercedes faced yet another disappointing weekend during the Miami Grand Prix.

Neither of their drivers managed to secure points during the sprint event, and on the day of the race, they were ranked as the fourth-fastest team, trailing behind McLaren, Red Bull, and Ferrari.

Lewis Hamilton displayed promising speed, finishing sixth and putting pressure on Sergio Perez towards the end.

Mercedes unveiled a major enhancement in Miami, specifically focusing on the floor region.

Andrew Shovlin states that the real effects will only become apparent after they address their handling problems with additional improvements.

"Shovlin mentioned in Mercedes' debrief on their YouTube channel that they successfully advanced the delivery of approximately half of our update package to Miami, with the remainder scheduled to reach Imola."

"We're diligently focusing on the upcoming races, aiming to introduce enhancements there too. Did everything perform as anticipated? Indeed, everything seems to be providing the level of performance we desired from the floor."

"Currently, the problem lies in the fact that all teams are advancing their vehicles. For instance, McLaren introduced a significant upgrade, and they seem to have progressed. Additionally, the handling difficulties faced by the drivers are complicating the perception of these improvements as direct progress."

A characteristic often observed in the W15 is its variability, showing significant differences in performance from one session to another.

Shovlin has clarified the reasons why, at least for the time being, the effects of the improvements will remain "muted".

He further explained, "What we often see is that the car's performance can vary significantly from one session to another. Until we fully understand and address this issue, we'll inevitably undermine the potential advantages that could come from these updates."

"Following the recent races, we now have a solid understanding of the modifications required for the car to improve its maneuverability for the drivers, ensuring it responds accurately during crucial qualifying rounds. Additionally, we are planning a series of updates that will roll out over the next three to four races."

"There's been considerable effort put in, and we're optimistic that we'll begin to witness the outcomes of it shortly."
