Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff says in the last three races Mercedes’ “experiments have gone wrong with Lewis and not with George”.

George Russell’s results in 2022 so far have been better overall than Lewis Hamilton’s. While some have used this to blast the seven-time champion, Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff explains the reasons behind Lewis’ problems.

“Lewis has been trying some quite experimental parts of the car and there was a different floor solution on his car that didn’t work,” the Austrian said regarding the Azerbaijan Grand Prix Qualifying.

He then further explained what has happened throughout the season so far.

“I am very close to it and I see one session one is faster and then next the other is.

“And because the car is on a knife edge, if you put a foot wrong, in terms of experiments on the car – which need to be done in order for us to learn how to perform and where to put the car – there is 0.2 – 0.3secs immediately between them.

“And the last three races these experiments have gone wrong with Lewis and not with George,” Wolff concluded.
