FIA’s F1 intervention may have ‘very negative effect’ on Hamilton | F1 | Sport


“So this is working against Mercedes and this could have a very negative effect on Lewis Hamilton’s season. Based on what they’re saying, the FIA are going to look at ways of stopping the porpoising, on the Mercedes all that means is raising the car up so that the car doesn’t hit the ground anymore and cause a pain in the back any more to Lewis Hamilton and George Russell.”

Hamilton complained of back pain at the Azerbaijan Grand Prix as his car suffered tremendous porpoising, and was a doubt to compete in Canada but confirmed his intention to race this weekend. “Of course, the consequence of that is the Mercedes cars will go slower because that is not the way they like to be run for maximum speed,” Kravitz added. “They like to be run close to the ground – and if you get a bad back, well I’m sorry that’s just the consequence of going quick. You raise the Mercedes up, you’re going to go slow.

“So that’s the reaction that we’re having here in Canada to what’s been really a surprising intervention by the FIA and not one that Mercedes were after.”
