Paddy Lowe: “We hope our package will be strong”


Executive Director Paddy Lowe talks about the W07 chances at the German GP

Mercedes Executive Director, Paddy Lowe hopes the Mercedes package will be competitive on a demanding circuit as the Hockenheimring.

“With a good range of cornering speeds, it places a high demand on every aspect of car performance, so we hope our package will be strong there”.

As the home race for Mercedes, Lowe and the rest of the team will want to impress and deliver the top result.

After the absence of the German Grand Prix from last’s years’ calendar, Mercedes will need to give an impressive display for the 280,000 Daimler employees worldwide.

“It’s also a fantastic opportunity for our colleagues from Stuttgart to see their Silver Arrows close up.”

Ahead of the German Grand Prix, Lowe has praised the circuit and the spectacle that it brings, “It’s a great venue for spectators, with the stadium section providing fantastic views of the final sector”.  

The two drivers have been at the top of their game, with Nico Rosberg winning in 2014 and an amazing recovery drive from Lewis Hamilton starting 14th and finishing on the podium.

Paddy Lowe will feel the pressure from Mercedes-Benz and will want a good result without incident between the two drivers, which has spoilt a perfect season so far.

The use of Medium, Soft and Super-Soft tyre could bring some exciting tyre strategies and hopefully some enthralling racing.
