It is interesting that the Mercedes customer teams are all struggling and implies it’s not just a drag issue slowing down the top speed of the works car.
Ehhhh, the customer cars are all very compromised in their own ways aerodynamically. Can't really judge the PU from their performance either.
Who knows if its a coincidence or not, but all of them have missed the mark to begin the season.
Chances of them all getting it wrong are slim I reckon. Look at Haas, not a single point last season and doing well now.
There's nothing about Haas's performance over the last 2 years that would've transferred over to this year given their complete lack of investment into the 2020 and 2021 cars. They've been competitive in the past when Ferrari has a good PU because they are essentially the Ferrari B-Team.
The chances of them all getting it wrong aren't slim because we saw what the cars did yesterday. Aston was compromised due to its high ride height, Williams clearly is lacking downforce, and the McLaren has both brake and aero issues that it doesn't know how to solve yet.
