Mercedes compromised by altitude and heat in Austria | 2019 Austrian Grand Prix

Mercedes are having a less competitive weekend at the Austrian Grand Prix due to the combination of high altitude and hot temperatures at the track, team principal Toto Wolff has revealed.
Toto Wolff: “Our car was very dominant in Paul Ricard for example but we knew with the altitude here and the cooling and straight-line speed disadvantage that we have at the moment that this could be a very tough one.”
Toto Wolff: “If you add those two factors of altitude and heat together that puts us in a compromised situation that we just have to open up more than we would like to.”
