Mercedes struggling with aero rule change says Albers

Former F1 driver Christijan Albers has dismissed claims that Mercedes may be sandbagging ahead of the 2021 season. Mercedes’ early struggle has coincided with a notably smooth start for Red Bull, with most observers putting the Honda-powered team at the top of the hierarchy. Albers thinks Mercedes is struggling more than Red Bull with the aerodynamic rule tweak to the cars’ floors for 2021. “But you can see that the Red Bull cars have responded very well. Albers said the fact that Aston Martin is also struggling is evidence that the Mercedes philosophy struggles more with the floor changes. “The biggest struggle is with Mercedes and Aston Martin,” he said.
