With another specialized order given by the FIA on Thursday to make sense of how they will try to stop vehicles bobbing all over at a high pace, Mercedes had the option to present a ‘floor stay’ which is a metal tube that restricts the bouncing of the car and showcased it for Friday’s practice session.

However, a report by the Daily Mail expresses that opponent groups had serious doubts about the conditions surrounding the floor-stay Mercedes utilized only the day after the FIA’s statement, in that they might have been warned about the new change.

The distribution asserts that eyebrows were raised over how Mercedes might actually plan the part so rapidly after an FIA mandate guaranteed the floor-stay was given for specialized reasons. “How could they be aware? That is the issue,” one anonymous senior group chief said.

The report further proceeds to express that some were puzzled over whether Mercedes had an exceptional channel open to them since Shaila-Ann Rao who was their previous executive was delegated as a temporary FIA general toward the beginning of June. Wolff showed his resentment at the circumstance with a vented message toward different chiefs.

“This situation has clearly gone too far. Team principals trying to play political games is disingenuous. All of the cars, not just Mercedes, suffered in some way in Baku. It’s a fault in Formula One at the moment and it’s an issue that needs to be solved. Little manipulations in the background, Chinese whispers, it’s a bit difficult,” Wolff added.

Meanwhile, Lewis Hamilton finished fourth in the qualifying and his teammate had to settle for the eighth spot in today’s Canadian Grand Prix.
