According to the Mercedes team manager, the development of the W13 is on the right track.

A third and fourth place for Mercedes in Canada: Toto Wolff was satisfied with the performance of his drivers and the development of the car. “Today we showed some pace, and we used different levels of drag. George opted for more downforce in the rain yesterday, but he was still able to overtake because he could be effective under braking at the Casino hairpin.”

“Lewis, on the other hand, had a more unloaded wing, and with the new asphalt he suffered less from the stiffness of the car, especially at the first hairpin. Before the Safety Car, we were faster than Sainz and Verstappen. However, it was only a few laps. I don’t think we have gone backwards, but we have to keep working to develop the car. We had it very low to the ground, and that is still not good. We need to develop the car in a different window than the one we had. We have identified a direction of development, but the problem is ours and it is up to us to solve it,” are the words reported by Formulapassion.
