Russell’s Brazil retirement no problem for last two races

Russell’s Brazil retirement no problem for last two races

Mercedes confirmed that George Russell’s retirement from the Sao Paulo Grand Prix due to engine issues will not affect the remaining two races of the Formula One season. The decision to retire Russell’s car was made to prevent potential fire and damage to other parts of the vehicle. However, he will be using a different power unit for the upcoming races, eliminating any concerns in that regard.

Mercedes had a disappointing weekend at Interlagos, marking their worst performance of the season. Despite their hopes of replicating last year’s one-two victory, they struggled, with Lewis Hamilton finishing in eighth place. Red Bull has dominated this season, winning 19 out of 20 races, while Ferrari claimed the remaining victory.

Riccardo Musconi, Mercedes’ head of trackside performance, suggested that Hamilton’s disqualification from the U.S. Grand Prix in Austin, due to excessive wear of the under-car plank, may have played a role in their lack of pace. However, he acknowledged that this alone does not explain the overall performance at Interlagos.

Musconi explained that they may have been too conservative with the ride heights after the Austin race, but he believes there are other factors contributing to their struggles. The team is analyzing the situation to understand the full picture.

In conclusion, George Russell’s retirement will not impact the remaining races, but Mercedes faced challenges at Interlagos. They are striving to identify the reasons behind their performance and make improvements for the upcoming events.
