Long wheelbase to hurt in Monaco GP – Mercedes

Difference Between the Current and Old F1 Tires

Mercedes is concerned Ferrari could have the upper hand this weekend in Monaco.

Lewis Hamilton actually returned to the top step of the podium in Barcelona, but that circuit particularly suited the specifications of Mercedes’ 2017 car.

Monaco, the tight and twisty street circuit, could be a different matter.

“A car with the longest wheelbase on a track with so many slow corners … we could be slower than them,” Valtteri Bottas, referring to Mercedes’ battle with Ferrari this year, is quoted by Brazil’s Globo.

And Mercedes team chairman Niki Lauda told the Swiss newspaper Blick: “At the moment, Ferrari has certain advantages there (at Monaco).

“We will have our problems with our longest wheelbase through the tight corners,” predicted the F1 legend. “It will be even worse than in Singapore.”
