Ross Brawn has promised that Mercedes will only get stronger following Lewis Hamilton’s victory at last weekend’s Hungarian Grand Prix.
The Anglo-German outfit have become known as one of the sport’s biggest underachievers in recent years but appear to have turned a corner in 2013 and clearly have one of the quickest cars on the grid.
However, early on in the year they struggled to convert their pace into race victories but with Nico Rosberg taking victory in Monaco and Great Britain, Hamilton’s triumph at the Hungaroring was the team’s third win of the season.
In many ways the mid-season break has come at precisely the wrong time for Mercedes, as the four weeks before the next race in Belgium could lead to them losing their momentum.
The Brackley-based team will use the time off to continue to develop their car in a bid to add further consistency to their undoubted pace.
Brawn admits he is excited about the second half of the season and believes the Mercedes are only going to get stronger ahead of the next race at Spa.
“The team has great spirit at the moment and I know the things that are coming through on the technical front,” he told Mercedes’ official YouTube channel.
“Our hit rate has been pretty good on technical innovations this year, and the things we have brought to the track have generally worked.
“We have some things coming up in the next few races that could give us the extra impetus, extra momentum, to take us through the second half of the year.”
