Brawn: Mercedes needs to find more pace from the car

Mercedes disappointed with final results in German Grand Prix. Schumacher start from third on the grid and finished in seventh place with three pit-stops.

Mercedes GP’s rivals made on two-stop strategy, but their three stop helped Rosberg finish with final points from the back on the grid.

Mercedes GP Team Principal Ross Brawn admits that today they are too slow and duo was struggled with fresh compound and he still says Mercedes need more pace from the car.

“We ran the race as well as we could today, in the knowledge that we would have to make three pit-stops,” explained Team Principal Ross Brawn.

“Some of our rivals on two-stop strategies faded towards the end but the drop-off was not sufficient for our drivers to be able to take advantage on fresher tyres.

“Michael and Nico put in consistent performances, pulled off good overtaking moves and we delivered six clean pit-stops. Our strategy enabled Nico to climb 11 positions from his starting place, while Michael finished in seventh place for the second time in two weeks.

“We made the right decisions this afternoon but, after 67 laps, Michael found himself 29 seconds behind the winner. That shows we need to find more pace from the car.”
