Formula 1 teams stripping PAINT in drastic bid to find extra pace as Mercedes boss Wolff admits new car is too heavy

FORMULA ONE teams have taken drastic action to try to speed up their cars – by not painting them. “These cars are heavy by regulation, and to get down to the regulation weight, it’s a challenge. “We went through the whole car from front to back, and we took paint off wherever we could. “And then there are some that are on the weight or just above it. “I think there is definitely room to improve, and to chip away some of the bits that we have on the car that are too heavy.”. Several drivers have spoken about the weight of the new cars having a noticeable impact on handling.
