George Russell is confident Mercedes can avoid falling into the “same trap” that led to their Sao Paulo struggles at the F1 Las Vegas Grand Prix.
Mercedes had a disappointing performance in the last race in Brazil, with Hamilton finishing eighth and Russell retiring. Toto Wolff admitted it was their worst weekend in F1 and they now understand the mistakes that caused it. The team implied that a set-up error worsened their tire wear and pace issues. Despite being trapped in their mistake, they are confident it won’t happen again in Las Vegas. Hamilton stated that they got the car in the wrong place but they know exactly what went wrong and have learned from it.
