Is the key to Mercedes success a substantial loss in weight in the car for the Spanish GP…..
Many have been quick to suggest that the reason Mercedes just clinched first place was thanks to a significant drop in the cars weight.
This comes after Lewis Hamilton revealed he no longer carries water in order to try and save as much weight as physically possible.
However, Toto Wolff explained that although the team had made significant improvements to the car, no where near to the extent some of the news have reported.
“We tried to improve aerodynamic efficiency and reduce weight, but we’re not talking about five kilograms,” Wolff explained.
“In Formula 1 it is difficult to make big steps like that — they are all small. We are working more with grams than kilograms,”
