Former F1 driver Martin Brundle recently admitted that he is confused by Mercedes and where the team currently stands this season. This was in reference to Lewis Hamilton describing his W13 as “undriveable” last Friday ahead of the Canadian Grand Prix before securing a podium on the same track two days later.
As reported by PlanetF1, Brundle said:
Despite securing the World Constructors’ Championship for eight consecutive seasons, Mercedes had a rough start in 2022. The package visibly lacks pace and performance when compared to that of Red Bull and Ferrari, as a result of which the German team has failed to secure a race finish higher than third so far this season. Despite this, it currently stands third in the Constructor Standings.
Lewis Hamilton and George Russell are heading to their home Grand Prix next weekend. Martin Brundle claimed that the German team appears to be confident of positive results at Silverstone despite its recent struggles.
The TV pundit admitted that Mercedes was unlikely to have secured a podium in Canada had Charles Leclerc and Sergio Perez been in the podium fight, but added that the team has certainly shown significant progress. He said:
While Mercedes may not have been able to keep up the pace as compared to Red Bull and Ferrari, its strong reliability advantage over the two teams has played a massive role in its place in the championship.
