The difference between Mercedes and the two other top teams Red Bull Racing and Ferrari was less than the previous Grands Prix in Britain last weekend. The German team introduced a major update package at Silverstone, but it is uncertain whether the differences will be as minimal next week in Austria.

It was said beforehand that the W13 should go well in the British GP weekend and it did. However, it is unclear whether this is because the characteristics of the circuit simply suit the Mercedes car or whether it is really due to the improvements made to the car.

According to Auto, Motor und Sport-Michael Schmidt, a journalist, they don't know yet at Mercedes themselves: "At Mercedes they are not sure how Spielberg will work out for them. It will be a good circuit to see how good the updates from Silverstone really are. They told me that they [Mercedes] will now bring small upgrades every race, all these upgrades will be floor related."

So the team of Lewis Hamilton and George Russell continues to come up with developments. "Mercedes will take these upgrades all the way to Budapest. That is the big test to see if they have completely fixed the bouncing. If everything works there, Mercedes think they can win races on their own in the second half of the season," the German reporter said.

The updates that will be taken to the Red Bull Ring will be of a smaller nature. A larger update would then be introduced in France or Hungary. According to Schmidt, the update will be on the floor and we will not be able to see the W13 change with the naked eye.
