Mercedes F1 team boss Toto Wolff is much pleased with recent successful development of W13, which was achieved in the Hungarian Grand Prix qualifying P1 and double podium finish behind the champion Max Verstappen.

Presently the competition between Red Bull, Ferrari, and Mercedes. But the Mercedes is the only team consistently maintaining the consistency. Wolff recently revealed that the “unconventional” methods taken to accelerate the development of the Mercedes W13 this season.

“In this season, we have done unconventional things and I remember having a chat with a very clever lady in aerodynamics and she said, ‘If you would have told me last year we would be putting a floor on the car we haven’t run in the wind tunnel I would have said we are never going to do this’,” said Wolff.

“We did and everybody was proud of the results. [It’s] the same thing every weekend, we try things.”

“This is a database source but if you can’t rely on the data, because they don’t correlate from the virtual world, from the tunnel, CFD and simulations with what is happening in real-time on the track, you have just got to try things and find correlation… basically reverse engineer correlation. Wolff added

“This is what we did and had positive results.”

Verstappen hit back Red Bull radio – I don’t get it mate!

Max Verstappen F1 2022 Singapore Grand Prix

Championship leader Max Verstappen’s Singapore Grand Prix pole lap was aborted by his team Red Bull in the final session of Q3. Max was screams over his team radio, as his team call him to box.

“I don’t get it, mate. What the XXXX is this about?” Max said over the radio.

The Dutchman will start tomorrow’s race in eighth – and his targets of securing the second F1 world title tomorrow have been greatly weakened.

The exact problem has been confirmed in the pitlane that Verstappen wasn’t able to complete his final lap as he needed to come back into the pit with a full litre of fuel.

“It was because they needed a fuel sample,” said Ted Kravitz.

“Max Verstappen, you can understand why he is so frustrated because Red Bull’s data shows he would have finished that lap two and a half seconds quicker than his previous lap.

“Two and a half seconds quicker than that would have put him on pole position or very, very close to it.”

Updated: It’s just incredibly frustrating – Max

“I felt good on the lap before, but then they told me to abort, so okay, we did that, and then on the final lap they told me to box and I realised what was going to happen. Max told Sky Sports F1

“We ran out of fuel. It’s just incredibly frustrating and shouldn’t happen. When you under-fuel it or you don’t plan to do six laps, then at least you track it throughout the session that you’re not going to make it.

“We should have seen that way earlier. I’m not happy at all at the moment.

“Of course, it’s always a team effort. I can make mistakes and the team can make mistakes, but it’s never acceptable.

“Of course you learn from it, but this is really bad to be honest. It shouldn’t happen.”
