One of the biggest stories of F1’s now-cancelled Emilia Romagna grand prix weekend was going to be the debut of Mercedes’ highly-anticipated car upgrade.
The package is expected to be the first step in a change of direction for Mercedes after it clearly misjudged F1’s ground effect rules era at the first two attempts.
When Mercedes got things wrong at the start of 2022 there was a feeling both inside and outside the team that it was just a temporary setback.
But here we are, 27 races into this rules package and Mercedes is still well off the pace of Red Bull and has slipped to fourth-fastest this season thanks to the rise of Aston Martin. So how has Mercedes got things so badly wrong since the rule change, and why is it taking so long to troubleshoot its problems?
