Mercedes retains problems with the car despite a strong weekend in Canada. The situation worries former Formula 1 driver Christian Danner. Speaking to Sport & Talk on Servus TV, Danner points to Toto Wolff who is said to be responsible.

Whereas the German team has been fighting for the world title since 2014, this season has been different. At Barcelona and Montreal, among others, Mercedes showed it could compete with the top teams, but at other circuits the gap to Ferrari and Red Bull Racing widened considerably.

For the time being, Mercedes cannot count itself rich, as Danner also knows. "I really appreciate Toto. He has won enough titles in the last few years. But please, who set the car up like this? It's the team that does it," he notes.

Mercedes is looking for solutions

Porpoising seems to be one of the main reasons that Mercedes is still not able to compete at the front. According to Danner, however, there is another issue of concern. "The car is just set up way too hard. That's the problem," says Danner, who believes that Wolff does deserve credit after all the world titles.
