“In Monaco and Baku we put the W12 in a window where only one of our drivers found the confidence to unlock the performance of the car – Valtteri in Monaco and Lewis in Baku.
“In such a close, intense title fight, we need to deliver a car at each race which both our drivers can confidently push to its limits.”

Wolff believes that F1’s return to a traditional track next weekend coupled with Mercedes’ past performances at Paul Ricard bode well for the team’s prospects.
“The French Grand Prix means returning to a more traditional circuit and hopefully, better fortunes for us,” commented the Austrian.
“It is a track we’ve gone well at in the past and, with a wide range of corner speeds that will test the car in every aspect, it’s an interesting challenge for us to tackle.
“We’re six races into the season and there’s still a long way to go. It’s looking very close at the front and we’re not expecting that to change anytime soon.
“We’ll be looking to turn our learnings from recent weeks into performance and to deliver a much stronger weekend with both cars.”
