‘We’re no longer rookies; we can’t use that excuse anymore,’ says Mercedes-EQ Team Principal Ian James

Mercedes-EQ Team Principal Ian James says his team can no longer lean on inexperience as an excuse in Season 7, and that while still learning, points must be scored wherever the team can. Mercedes-EQ flew out of the blocks in Diriyah with Nyck de Vries storming to a Round 1 clean sweep and victory in the season-opener, meaning the team arrives in Rome second in the standings, four points back from Jaguar Racing. “Being a new team we had the realisation that coming into Season 7, that was now all behind us. It’s was a proper street circuit back then and it certainly is now. “The drivers and the team as a whole are just looking forward to getting out there and seeing what we can do.
