Bottas sees progress, but Hamilton doesn't agree with him

Mercedes is in good shape again this weekend on the Red Bull Ring. Even though their performance this Friday looked a bit less convincing than a week earlier. This is partly because they are trying to solve some problems that came to light during the first Grand Prix.

"The practice was really useful", explains Valtteri Bottas to Sky Sports camera after the second free practice, "The first free practice was mainly to see if we could solve the reliability problems of last Sunday's race. The team is still looking at that, but I think we are making progress. That's good news."

Hamilton's still in the dark

Furthermore, the Finn says that the feeling with the car was about the same as last week, which indicates that we can expect the black cars back at the front despite their problems. Although Lewis Hamilton does not entirely agree with the observation of his teammate that progress has been made.

"Not that I know of", he says when he has to respond to the claim of his teammate. According to the world champion, they will still have to be careful with the kerbstones. The vibration caused by them could damage the gearbox.
