2013 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix

Lewis Hamilton, Mercedes, Yas Marina, 2013Mercedes intend to address a “clear weakness” on their car which led to Lewis Hamilton spending ten laps stuck behind Esteban Gutierrez.

Hamilton lost over seven seconds to team mate Rosberg as he sat behind the Sauber in the first half of the race, as the race charts below reveal.

“Lewis got tangled up in other people’s races after his first stop and found it impossible to overtake in traffic,” said team principal Ross Brawn after the race.

“This is a clear weakness of our package at the moment and he spent most of his race behind slower cars, unable to demonstrate his true speed. This is an issue where we need to get our thinking caps on in order to find a more effective compromise because there’s little point having a quick car if we can’t use that performance in the race.”

At the head of the field Sebastian Vettel’s lead peaked at over 40 seconds on lap 37, prior to his final pit stop. He crossed the line half a minute ahead of Mark Webber having backed off considerably in the final laps as he hit a large train of traffic.

  1. There was some gap between 1st and 2nd, 4th and 5th, Ricciardo and Vergne & Caterham and Marussia.

  2. Mike Dee (@mike-dee) said on 3rd November 2013, 19:57

    Hadn’t noticed during the race the Ricciardo’s last stint was that awful as one can see now on the gap chart. Did he have a car problem?

    Oh why, why, why did Grosjean pit with Webber? Damn! His softs were still looking strong…

      @juan-fanger, they were covering Mercedes’ attempt to undercut them. It nearly worked, too, as Grosjean exited the pits just a few car lengths ahead of Hamilton. Still, given that the soft turned out to be the quicker race tyre, it might have been worth a shot to stay out longer.

    What’s the weakness then, slow corner traction? It does seem like quite an awkward car to drive.

  5. kpcart said on 4th November 2013, 2:31

    There was no weakness, it is just that sauber have such a fast car at moment, especially on the straights.

  6. OOliver said on 4th November 2013, 6:14

    Mercedes seem to consistently playing a conservative game with their race strategies and it has cost them points.
    ForceIndia and Sauber seem to get better traction out of the corners than does Mercedes.
