With no doubts, Mercedes has dominated the Formula 1 2019 season so far.
With the last victory in Monaco, Lewis Hamilton set the 7th consecutive victory for the silver arrows in the current championship. Despite, the five-times Formula 1 world champion pointed out that Mercedes can still improve its performance.
"A lot of analysis will be made, particularly towards trying to understand the tyres better and deliver better in terms of our processes," declared Hamilton.
"And on my side, I am trying to work even better with my engineers to try and extract more from my car.
"That means Bono [Peter Bonnington, Hamilton's race engineer] and Marcus [Dudley, performance engineer] and a lot of the engineers trying to extract more information from the energy recovery system, and positioning the information in the right way so I can deliver more from this car.
"And I know the guys back at the factory are working on developments.
The British driver underlined that the Brackley’s team is about to bring new upgrades in Montreal. Particularly, Mercedes aims to introduce a new engine specification.
"I know the guys back at the factory are working on developments.
"We will probably have a new engine by the next race, so the car will continue to move forward as we will."
Honda was the first to do so, adopting the “Spec 2” engine at round four in Azerbaijan. Renault and Ferrari followed the Japanese constructor in Catalunya, bringing forward new engine upgrades for reliability and performance reasons respectively.
Although Mercedes has not introduced yet a new engine specification, differently from its competitors, the Stuttgart company has clearly paved the way to a successful 2019, with both its drivers at the commanding positions in the current standing.
Indeed, Hamilton enlightened how strong his team his, praising Mercedes for the last victory in Monaco, albeit the tyres issues.
"Obviously we were on the wrong tyres, so strategically we could have done a better job, without a doubt.
"We don't always get that perfect and I think we'll definitely learn from it.
"What doesn't break you only makes you stronger."
