George Russell says Mercedes is looking at cars from their “glory years” and “using that as a bit of inspiration, as clearly that was one of the best cars in history”.
The Belgian Grand Prix saw the return of bouncing for Mercedes, and George Russell says it’s a shame to see this at the ‘pinnacle of motorsport’.
“I think this weekend validated probably the direction we’ve taken the setup in recent races hasn’t been the right one,” the Briton said.
“We suffered with a huge amount of bouncing today. A number of teams did, maybe not as severe as we did.
“Still obviously a bit of a shame to see that as a sport. At the pinnacle the majority of teams are still struggling with bouncing. I hope something can be solved in that regard in the future.”

As for the future, George revealed Mercedes is looking at their old cars as inspiration.
“It definitely can be tweaked. I think we’re working really hard on the characteristics for next year.
“We’re looking a lot at how the previous generations of cars were for Mercedes during the glory years and using that as a bit of inspiration, as clearly that was one of the best cars in history.
“So that’s given us some pointers of where we need to try and aim for,” Russell concluded.
