The Mercedes team is in the third position in the Formula 1 constructors' championship. However, the difference between them and Ferrari and Red Bull is increasing with every race.
Last season the Mercedes cars dominated the competition, but this season's new regulations have not helped them. This year was imposed a spending limit on all teams, which has prevented Mercedes from carrying out tests to improve its racers' cars.
Both Hamilton and Russell have tried to stay within the top 10 positions in order not to lose points. In this sense, the team's boss, Toto Wolff, has said in interviews that, although there is still much to improve, he assures that the cars will have a better level for the remainder of the season.
