Non-Executive Director of Mercedes Niki Lauda has hinted that the “Silver arrows” can resort to the command tactics in the second half of season 2017.
At the last stage in Hungary Lewis Hamilton regained third place Valtteri bottas to finish and lost three important points, which can be very useful at the end of the championship in the struggle with Sebastian Vettel. It is possible that in the remaining nine races the team will still prioritize.
“Of course, we are discussing a plan of action in case of such situations in the future,” said Lauda in an interview to the Austrian newspaper Osterreich.
At the Hungaroring Ferrari started from the first row and scored a double victory. As Lauda said, the Spa “Silver arrows” are going to win.
“Within two weeks the base was closed for the summer break, but now our engineers went back to work – continued the Austrian. – Spa should fit our car better than Hungaroring. But we want to reduce the gap from the Ferrari on the slow tracks”.
