Hamilton: Mercedes has not made any upgrades to the car to date

Lewis Hamilton managed to reach the 5th fastest time in the Australian GP qualifiers, with the Briton saying that the team has not made any upgrades to its car since the beginning of the season, revealing that he feels moderately optimistic for the next races, when Mercedes will bring upgrades.

As he said, the key is to collect data from the Australian GP to understand how they can correct the performance of this year’s car, which reacts “strangely” when it pushes to the limit.

Hamilton reiterated that the worst problem facing the car is porpoising, a statement echoed by both George Russell and Toto Wolff. Because of this, Mercedes loses significantly in both straight and high speeds, with Wolff adding that there are still some hidden secrets in the car that need to be identified through data analysis to understand what is causing the problem.

We see where we lose. When we look at the data, at the first point of the track we are very competitive. In the second we are competitive, but in the third, we lose almost 1 second in a few turns,

said Wolff.
