The chief engineer of the Mercedes team Andy Shovlin on the eve of the start of the Styrian Grand Prix said that there are doubts about the solution to the problem with the sensor, which almost caused the pilots to leave the team last week.

“We did not have much time to work to completely eliminate the reappearance of this problem in the race,” the correspondent Adam Cooper quotes Shovlin. – If there is no gap during the race, this will be a big event for us. However, other minor faults may intervene. For this reason, we are not relaxing and are aware of all the risks. ”

It should be emphasized that Mercedes made its debut in Formula 1 in 1954 and successfully participated in the seasons of 1954 – 1955. But after the 1955 season, the company decided to exit the series and did not return until November 2009.

Recall that in 2014 – 2015, Formula 1 was won by Lewis Hamilton, and Nico Rosberg both times became vice champion (both Mercedes racers). In 2016, there was simply a change of place – Rosberg became the champion.

In addition, it was previously reported that Ferrari is seriously inferior to its competitors in the first stage of Formula 1. So, after Friday’s free races, the pilot of the Scuderia Charles Leclair talked about the difficulties in driving a car.
