Mercedes, learn from mistakes to restart stronger in 2023

Mercedes’ 2022 was unexpectedly bad. With the extreme solutions presented in Barcelona, ​​the W13 was a candidate to be among the favorites for the title, as well as innovative, but that didn’t happen, and the concept of this car was rejected from the track. Only one victory, the one in Brazil, then almost all the races well below expectations, as well as the last round in Abu Dhabi, which ended with a fifth place and a retirement, that of Hamilton.

“We would have liked to end the year differently – admitted Andrew Shovlin, track technical director of Mercedes. But to be honest, we deserved to finish like this, because we haven’t been good this season. It was difficult, but this year has given us challenges that have united the team. We knew one day our winning streak would come to an end, and we always knew this type of challenge would be the biggest the team has ever faced, but one of the few positives of this 2022 is how well the team has worked together, looked for solutions rather than excuses, and we will do everything we can to get back into the title fight in 2023.”
