goes into the summer break without a win this season but Wolff thinks the characteristics of the Belgian and Italian Grands Prix that follow the shutdown could lead to a completely different picture.

“I have no doubt that the conversation could be totally different than the one we’re having right now.”

“That’s where we are lacking performance and in the race I think it shows even more because you are sliding and then I think we are going through the tyres faster.

“So, it was not to our advantage. We have seen that as well in recent weeks, so in a way not a surprise. But we need to keep our head down and do the work.”
