Mercedes Trackside Engineering Director Andrew Shovlin says the target for the Italian Grand Prix is to “get back in the lead of both championships”.

The Italian Grand Prix weekend is fast approaching and Mercedes is looking to go on the offensive after a decisive loss at the Dutch Grand Prix.

“Our cars have worked well [at Monza] over the years,” said Shovlin.

“It’s a track that we have been strong at and I think it’s a drag level that we have seen our car work reasonably well at.

“In Spa, the indications on Friday in the dry were that we were looking really good on both single lap and long runs.

“But we are under no illusion that it will be a challenge and I think losing certainly wipes any complacency out of your system.

“We are not going to walk into Monza expecting that we can just do our normal thing and walk away with a win.

“We are expecting to really have to work for it and we are expecting to have to get everything right.

“We will be putting all our efforts into preparing for that because the goal and the target are to go there and get back in the lead of both championships,” concluded the Briton.
