Mercedes to introduce new front wing and other upgrades at Canadian GP

Lewis Hamilton and George Russell will have access to Mercedes' updated front wing when the F1 season resumes at the Canadian Grand Prix.

Mercedes initially unveiled the new front wing design at the Monaco Grand Prix, but had only one version available.

In a gesture of team strategy, Hamilton suggested Russell use the new wing while he continued with the older specification.

Team principal Toto Wolff has confirmed that both drivers will utilise the latest iteration of the wing in Montreal.

He anticipates that the updated design will provide significant advantages on forthcoming circuits.

"We had an encouraging weekend in Monaco," Wolff said.

"We continued to make solid progress with our car, improving its overall balance and taking a step closer to those ahead.

"That progress isn't yet showing in terms of positions but if we can continue to close the gap to the fastest cars, we know it will in due course.

"Both drivers will have the updated front wing in Canada, plus some other development items for this event.

"It offered a small lap time gain around the tight streets of the Principality and should offer greater benefit on upcoming circuits."

At the Monaco Grand Prix, Russell and Hamilton secured fifth and seventh places, respectively.

Mercedes currently holds fourth place in the constructors' championship standings.

Despite this, Mercedes faces a substantial deficit, trailing Red Bull by 180 points. Additionally, they are 88 points behind McLaren, a team that uses Mercedes engines.
