Mercedes have confirmed they will be bringing upgrades to the British GP at Silverstone. The Silver Arrows have struggled this season and have produced just five podium finishes between Lewis Hamilton and George Russell so far this season.
But after consecutive 3-4 finishes for Hamilton and Russell respectively, Elliott confirmed the team will be fitting new parts at the next race to try and close the gap to leading teams Ferrari and Red Bull. “One thing you can be sure of is we will push as hard as we can,” Elliott said in Mercedes’ post-race debrief video.
“We will be bringing new bits to Silverstone, we will be trying to push the car forward, trying to get some pace from the car we’ve got or from the package we’ve got as well as the new bits we are going to add to it.
“I think at the same time though we have to be honest with ourselves and say that at the moment we are just a little bit behind those front runners in Ferrari and Red Bull. And in a normal race I think it is going to be tough.”
