The Mercedes driver Valtteri Bottas said that Mercedes still needs to do a lot of work to bring the car to perfect condition before the Grand Prix of Australia.
“We tested a lot of updates, and while not all have worked successfully, said in an interview with Bottas AUTOSPORT.com. Some were too complicated, and some is ineffective.
From these updates depended on the balance of the car. Generally, this does not happen, the machine immediately gets better as soon as it receives something new.
I’m sure we still need to understand many moments, but in General everything should be as planned. I was pleased to see how the team resolves all issues, so we just need to stop working.
When it turns out that on tests that something isn’t working in Brackley and everything here is instantly beginning to understand what was happening. So I have no doubt that we will be able to squeeze everything out of our car in Melbourne.”

Bottas also commented on the collaboration with triple world champion Lewis Hamilton: “We always work on different programs, but data for comparison is still there. Apparently, we’re pretty close in results.
Now we are just on the tests, and I was driving qualifying laps and did not compete in the race.
We are constantly progressing, and in comparison with the first day of the tests our form – heaven and earth.
It is important for me to keep up the pace and continually improve your form.”
