Mercedes have had problems with their cars throughout the season, which led to the eight-time constructors’ champions to be out of step with its main competitors.

But in recent weeks the gap has closed as the grid heads to softer tracks, with Lewis Hamilton on a streak of five consecutive podium finishes.

However, the new regulations established this year have negatively affected Mercedes and other teams on the grid. Toto Wolff warned that the situation was not safe for drivers: “I still believe that the FIA ​​and all of us must do something about it.“, he pointed out to the media.

“The FIA ​​has commissioned medical work on the pouring. The summary of the doctors is that a frequency of 1-2Hz, maintained for a few minutes, can cause brain damage. So Hamilton for example, could have them“, he explained.

the mercedes boss urged the FIA ​​to take action, in order to avoid problems in the future: “We have 6-7Hz for several hours. So the answer is very easy: the FIA ​​has to do something about it“, I concluded.
