They were strong in Barcelona. Strong in Silverstone. And they should be even better innapoleon1981 wrote: ↑Tue Jul 26, 2022 8:15 pmWe already went through this a few times:PlatinumZealot wrote: ↑Tue Jul 26, 2022 7:18 pmI'm thinking downforce setting is one thing but the speed range the wings and floor work in is important too. Mercedes should work better in the medium speed range. When you put that against the fact that Hungary is a smooth, medium speed track now, Merc should have a strong chance at fighting for the win.Vanja #66 wrote: ↑Tue Jul 26, 2022 1:11 pm
If all teams choose to go max downforce - Merc will have less than Ferrari and RB. If teams choose to go medium downforce - Merc will suffer on straights. In any case, they can be close only by divine intervention. Which is actually very likely, considering how it worked out for Max this season
No it will be Silverstone
Just kidding France it is.
Hungary of course will be a Merc win, for real now.
Even if Merc was fast in race pace, they will underperform in Qualy due to the ability to turn the tires on. We all know how difficult it is to overtake. I wouldnt be surprised to see them behind a Mclaren for a while.
The real boffins werent talking about France. Even last year's merc was bested in France.
