Wolff aiming for better fortunes as Mercedes head to happy hunting ground

Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff is hoping his team will unlock better performance from their W12 at a venue more suited to their car

Toto Wolff has said that he's hoping for better performances from his team's W12 as Mercedes head to a track they feel suits their car far more than the street circuits of the last two events.

Between Monaco and Azerbaijan, Mercedes looked off the pace at both races but were still able to stay in the hunt for the podium and victory until unusual circumstances happened. But, heading back to a 'normal' circuit after the streets of Monte Carlo and Baku, Wolff said the disappointments have been put behind Mercedes.

"We come off the back of two street circuits unsuited to our car, two circuits we knew would be difficult for us, and we were disappointed to lose a podium finish and a victory through our own mistakes," Wolff told media ahead of the French Grand Prix.

"That frustration reflects the high standards we hold ourselves to, and it is what drives us forward.

"In Monaco and Baku we put the W12 in a window where only one of our drivers found the confidence to unlock the performance of the car - Valtteri in Monaco and Lewis in Baku. In such a close, intense title fight, we need to deliver a car at each race which both our drivers can confidently push to its limits.

With Mercedes dominating the French Grand Prix in 2018 and 2019, Wolff is aiming to continue that run of form for the venue's return to the calendar this year.

"The French Grand Prix means returning to a more traditional circuit and
hopefully, better fortunes for us," he said.

"It is a track we've gone well at in the past and, with a wide range of corner speeds that will test the car in every aspect, it's an interesting challenge for us to tackle.

"We're six races into the season and there's still a long way to go. It's looking very close at the front and we're not expecting that to change anytime soon. We'll be looking to turn our learnings from recent weeks into performance and to deliver a much stronger weekend with both cars."
