Mercedes says it's still making big strides despite F1 2024 focus
Mercedes made several aerodynamic improvements to their W14 car for the Dutch Grand Prix, aiming to enhance performance at the rear. These upgrades are also intended to support the team for the upcoming non-European races, which incur higher shipping costs for upgrades. Despite teams shifting focus to next year’s car, Mercedes continues to find aerodynamic gains with the W14. According to trackside engineering director Shovlin, significant changes to the car’s design have contributed to this improved performance. Mercedes’ goal is to challenge Red Bull next year, as they allocate resources towards the 2024 season due to the cost cap.
