Mercedes describe Silverstone upgrade as quite exciting

Andrew Shovlin feels that Mercedes' bodywork update on the W12 will be intriguing as the world champions look to hit back at Lewis Hamilton's home event.

Mercedes trackside engineering director Andrew Shovlin has described the team's upgrade for the British Grand Prix as something that's quite exciting.

The defending champions have not won an F1 race or taken a pole position since the beginning of May at the Spanish GP whilst Red Bull have completely turned the tables during the same period.

"We are looking forward to Silverstone, we’ve got a good update coming there that’s quite exciting," said Shovlin on Mercedes' latest debrief video on YouTube.

"We are looking forward to the home crowd, there is obviously a lot of Lewis [Hamilton] fans that are going to be there, and it is also a track where our car has worked well.

So, we’ve got a few days just to regroup, to analyse the results of those and turn around the cars and get them ready for the next race in that updated bodywork, but we are optimistic for a better weekend.

Austria's Red Bull Ring has rarely suited Mercedes' car philosophy in recent years and Shovlin is hopeful that they can battle for the victory at Silverstone.

"Well, it’s fair to say that Austria is a track that over the years, we have struggled at," said Shovlin. "It’s a difficult circuit and one that doesn’t seem to suit our car and we are trying to understand those issues.

Silverstone on the contrary though, is one that we have tended to go very well at and also Lewis really enjoys that circuit.

"Some of it is the layout and the high-speed nature but also the fantastic support he has there from the home crowd. So, we are looking forward to it, it’s still going to be a challenging race weekend.

"We’ve got the sprint format to contend with, but hopefully we can put on a better showing and take that fight to Red Bull.”
