Toto Wolff: We have to continue working with the institutions

At the third practice in Monaco, Lewis Hamilton showed the third fastest time, and George Russell was sixth, and Toto Wolff, the head of the Mercedes team, commented on the results of the session on Sky Sports.

Toto Wolff: “In Monaco you have to solve difficult problems: you have to be on an open track at a time when your car’s tires have warmed up to optimal operating temperatures. The difference in the results of the riders who finished in places 2 to 10 at the end of the third training is very small and if you are lucky you will look very normal, and if not, that is quite unimportant, since everyone will have approximately the same lap time.

Lewis locked the brakes very badly, and that doesn’t help because the set of tires allocated for this training was damaged and you basically lose this session. On the other hand, it became clear that we have to keep working on the settings because he destroyed the tires during a long series of laps, and maybe we can still achieve some improvements.

Our car doesn’t handle the corners very well on this track and we haven’t been able to achieve optimal settings yet, so there are certain handling issues.”
