Mercedes new recruit Paddy Lowe currently focus on 2013 season, and targeting improving the performance on this year machine and took word title.

Mercedes grabbed two top podiums from the last three race and they proved qualifying pace. Last race at Britain Mercedes made another optimistic step with suit Pirelli’s actions.

Mercedes team principal Ross Brawn is very confident with last weekend performance, even as he insisted that currently they are little bit defensive mode. Also he added that Lowe’s priority in his role as executive director (technical) is to drive forward the development of the W04.

“There may be a point where we say it is not better to put our efforts into next year, but at the moment we are putting the maximum into this season,” Brawn told Autosport.

“One of the things I have said to Paddy is focus most of your attention on this car. Obviously [he must] know what is going on with the other car which is progressing well under Aldo Costa, but let’s push this one. That is an easy thing for Paddy to step in to.

“We will juggle our resources over the next six months to see what comes, but Silverstone was a pretty good step.”

“We took the race to them [Red Bull] this weekend, but we have to take another step because we were a little bit defensive, we made quite a lot of changes to the car for here that we think are significant, but we have to wait and see.” he added.
