Motorsport Italy: James Vowles, director of strategy at Mercedes, reveals that the team has failed to fully understand the W13. However, he is sure of one thing: "We are good at development, in 2023 we will be very strong".

Vowles: "I don't think it can be said that now, or even over the winter, we know everything about the W13. We've learned and discovered a whole host of new things over the year that we've had to learn to understand and develop very quickly, but we have to compare to..."
"....where we were, not so much Bahrain where we were quite competitive after testing, but I would definitely say Melbourne, Imola, first little sequence of the year on normal tracks if we want to use a better word, and then compared to where...." Motorsport Italy
"[...] we were after 'Austin Update, the last update of the year that we brought, so Austin, Mexico, Brazil and Abu Dhabi." "We've had ups and downs. The W13 has elements that we think we understand and some that haven't been fully explained yet," Vowles said.
"During the season we have managed to develop better than our competitors, we have structures that allow us to progress better than them. But we still have gaps. And the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix showed it well". Motorsport Italy
James Vowles: "We have to close the gap over the winter and I think Mercedes has a great process and a great system to do that. The development you've seen over the season will continue over the winter too and I think we'll be very strong next year." it.motorsport.com/f1/news/f1-vow…
