  • I am still not over it. We thrown a lot of important points away.

  • Excellent explanations. A bit relieved to learn the bigger rear wing was Valtteri's choice otherwise it would appear like the team was screwing him up. The next three races are crucial for Valtteri's future in Mercedes.

  • 🏋️🏋️🏋️🏋️🏋️🐘🐘🙏

  • errors, I really love it!

    • If the same thing happens to Lewis means he'll say...I'm Black. so they're cornering me...Gem 💎 Is bottas..

  • For Next Year pls 🙏

  • Please we need Valterri 🙏

  • I love these post race recap videos. It's great to hear the perspective of the team!

  • Every time I watch this channel I want to go out and buy a Mercedes so I can feel like I'm part of things. I will buy Mercedes very soon!! Love you guys!!

    • This is a great debrief - super clear and really open.

  • Thank you for these debriefs. It is fascinating to see the work that a top-level team does before and after a race weekend.

  • To summarize this video in two words you guys: .... up

    • Mercedes, you’ve only been struggling on street tracks, you’ll get em in France. The only street circuit left is Jeddah I think. Go give them a whipping.

  • Oh come Mike! Did the headset survive or not?

  • Buton magic

  • Boton magic

  • He sounds like he'll burst out in tears at any moment. Poor lad.

  • 💪💪💪💪 Dont give up and keep moving, actually even u all not know me 😅, and im just nobody, im also apologies if some word or act and what ever for our team.🇲🇾😊🇬🇧

    • @aola wili look they have maintenance problem on Baku and Monaco

    • 7:30 Yes guys give lewis a better car,make F1 more boring,Nice! 😒

  • Even i am not Mercedes f1 fan, I can't wait for the debriefing and i really enjoy it and its very interesting. Thnks for that!

  • Now for sure Mercedes is quite ready to a bright 1-2 in Paul Ricard. And also to the fastest lap :)

  • I'm a fan of Mercedes benz, thank you Mercedes for the respect you have for your client,

  • If the same thing happens to Lewis means he'll say...I'm Black. so they're cornering me...Gem 💎 Is bottas..

    • Give us 1-2 from France onwards. Is flexy wings being removed?

  • Now I'm hating this Mercedes team...

  • Love this series. It really offers more clarity to the seemingly random circumstances that may occur on a race-day

  • This is a great debrief - super clear and really open.

  • Why is the Mercedes team slower at tyre changing during races?

  • Is there any future left in this team? With so many engineers leaving, Toto Wolf's focus split, car not the best, almost 0 points in 2 consecutive races, many mistakes and misfortunes, is there actually hope here? Toto with his eyes on his investment in Aston Martin, I wonder if he has time for Mercedes. We see a lot of comments about the RedBull's car, but nothing about what happened in past 4 races. So far, Mercedes was simply lucky, Hamilton made 2 mistakes (for the first he was lucky with the restart - he reached 2nd place, the second was not so lucky), Bottas underperforming each race, the team poor decisions in Monaco (Hamilton's pit, Bottas locked wheel) and weird configuration for Bottas in Baku, and not to forget the that Mercedes lead the least number of laps. I wish and hope for the best for Mercedes team!

    • I am Ferrari fan, but huge respect for you guys recording these videos after these tough week-ends. No surprise you won 7 titles in a row

  • Strategy disaster very deludent

  • Mercedes, you’ve only been struggling on street tracks, you’ll get em in France. The only street circuit left is Jeddah I think. Go give them a whipping.

  • Expressing how worked up you got doesn’t make us as fans feel any better, please keep it classy and professional like Mercedes.

  • It's Bottas fault😂

  • 7:30 Yes guys give lewis a better car,make F1 more boring,Nice! 😒

  • I am still not over it. We thrown a lot of important points away.

  • If only world leaders were this honest about their performances... Kudos to M-AMG for choosing excellent questions..."MODI JI - Sikho inse kuch" I guess, in any race people usually don't support Merc. in this new hybrid era....But that is purely because of the fact they have dominated the shit out of F1 in last 4-5 years.

  • just a note: when you have a driver going for an ALL TIME record of CHAMPIONSHIPS (Lewis tied with Michael at 6 F1 titles) it is absolutely incomprehensible to me that you (Mercedes) would allow VB, or any other driver in your team, to choose when to "go" for anything (out in qually). Are you kidding ? "hey LeBron James; you're going for your 7 th NBA title but we are going to let [insert any name] play instead. He is on the Lakers and has no titles, but we take turns." Ridiculous.

  • What a joke to the team now is when Valtteri is asking for help on the track and Lec is the one who came to help....

  • did toto headphone survive? hahaa.. nice question. the table : now you feel what happened to me 😂

    • This debrief is just what the doctor ordered to cure my heartache....We fall and rise together....

  • Give us 1-2 from France onwards. Is flexy wings being removed?

  • Great work Mike! Many thanks for the debrief, as always, very interesting and informative.

  • Valtteri Bottas is a true hero 👍

  • At the end of the day, Lewis screwed up, no sugarcoating that. But that's fine, nobody is perfect. Quite the opposite, it's good to see that Lewis is still human. Of course he can't win without a superior Merc engine, but that's not taking away from his raw talent and speed. I just hope the championship stays as exciting as it has been so far in 2021.

  • Hopefully you guys can bounce back from this "bad weekend", these back to back result were quite alarming. But we will always support you guys, keep up the good work

  • I am Ferrari fan, but huge respect for you guys recording these videos after these tough week-ends. No surprise you won 7 titles in a row

  • Menace 1 the goat - NOlong I'm just wondering if they can tell if the tires are in the window from the pit's or only the drivers know?

  • Surely the statement about the undercut is wrong. Look at Seb and others that went long on first stint and they all benefited so the over cut was best NOT undercut!!!

    • True, but hindsight is always 20/20.

  • I hope they win next race week

  • Thank you for sharing the details with us, I really feel like a member of the team!!!

  • This is quite enlightening, please keep doing these debriefs.

  • ATB for France.

  • Hahahahahha

  • This debrief is just what the doctor ordered to cure my heartache....We fall and rise together....

  • How many words just to describe Hamilton is a better driver, Bottas is also world class, no doubt, but come on.

  • Still you rise amg

  • These videos are great. I almost like Mercedes as a result.

  • Still sugarcoating the Bottas situation. I'm beginning to Mercedes now... Hope my mind will be changed in the coming races

  • Why does Lewis blame the team when he doesn't win? Is that impactful on the team morale, and how come this is an acceptable comment from a driver?

    • @Arsenic oh he recently said in an interview that the need made a mistake

    • To be fair, he didn't blame the team, he apologized after going straight in turn1 after the last restart. He knew he blew it. But on a positive note, neither of the 2 championship contenders scored, so hopefully racing will stay exciting.

  • How come Bottas is so useless?

  • Baku still hurts. A lot.

  • Mercedes have so much class and professionalism you just always know they're going to bring success, even when the chips are down. Bring on the next race and thanks for the feedback much appreciated. 🏎️🏁😁👍

  • can you gift two of us the front brake discs from Lewis's car?

  • East or West, Mercedes is the best.

  • I love how mercedes reign is shakey

  • The magic button is not something new. It has been there for long so Lewis should take the blame. In such a tight championship after all the talk of Redbull making small mistakes from Toto and Lewis this is a huge mistake from Lewis. After all he is a seven time world champion.

  • Maybe Toto would also give one of these debriefs some day...I would love to see that :p

  • LEWIS' LOCK UP IS DEFINITELY BOTTAS' FAULT

  • @8:36 you are right..lucky . Luck will run out luckington

  • My question is why was Mercedes so worried about the undercut when the overcut was clearly going to be in play. This was why I was so happy to see Lewis make that mistake at the end.

  • Since you guys use break magic only during warm ups, it's better to put a flap on it, so it cannot be pressed accidentally. Since you have more time during warm ups, the extra time to open the flap shouldn't be an issue. Give how clever you guys are, you guys should already have a better solution. Just thought of sharing it.

  • Bottas should have never touched Hamilton's magic button...

  • Sign George before he leaves, he has no reason to stay at Williams and the “third” seat of Mercedes when he’s contract is up after this season. He’s not going to wait for another year

  • The fastest Merc doesn't even have ABS and ESP...

    • Neither does any other car on the grid.

  • James has still not recovered

  • as usual, you guys at Mercedes are great in victory and gracious in defeat. After these two difficult races you've got what it takes to turn things around. Wish you all the best.

  • I miss the Mercedes dominance

  • Why does heat make tires preform better

  • It’s nice to see this transparency from a team. They don’t have to do it but they did. Kudos to Mercedes to answer questions from fans and put the whole team out there after a poor showing. Can’t wait to see the reactions when they pull a 1-2 again, but I just don’t see that happening like before.

  • Really nice to see them be transparent and be positive about the setbacks 😁

  • All will be good if you just make the rear end stable like the W11! Come on guys you are better than this!

  • You let him say "So" in the closing statement. Why such discrimination? 😏

  • i hope Mercedes can win next race

  • Thanks for the race debrief! Fans really appreciate this, hope more teams will do race debriefs

  • This team is way too corporate. Sorry but I'm done with this boredom. F1 was a-ok in 2016 and 2018. Ok this year. Can't wait for 2022 and hope things get level again. 2021 will still probably yet again be Merc/Ham winning at the end of the day. Boring.

  • Getting used to these videos LOL

  • You said that drivers take it in turns to get to choose who goes out first but watching on from TV everything Mercedes do is the lewis show and bottas just seems to be there to make up the numbers from your side

  • *The only F1 Team that cares about what the Fans Think. Hate to say that, but it's just the Truth.*

    • And your reasons for saying that are what exactly?

  • Putting a guard around that switch or make it recessed will prevent silly things like this from happening.

  • Best videos of all grid, really professional

  • My emotions have not calmed down yet but this debrief has helped 😁

  • Mercedes is a woke, virtue signaling turd. Watch their stupid Together commercial and compare that with the leadership of Mercedes F1 and Daimler AG. Trash. Diversity, equity. Yeah right.

  • Without this guy my F1 weekend isnt justified when shit goes down, we all know accidents happen. On to the next 💨

  • We have so many people that have taken over the race debrief but they say the same thing and echo each others words. Thats some team cohesion where everyone is in tune with each other without even trying

  • Superb debrief! Look no further for a proper example of how to handle misfortune within a team environment. All parties involved taking their respective blame to further improve. Bravo!

  • Wish you could have raced in Canada this year =/. Thank you for the debrief, thank you for the leadership. Lets go VB and LH!

  • I also want a heart from Mercedes );

  • You’re gonna lose the wcc so badly

  • Best team, in victory or defeat!

  • Lewis does make very few mistakes yes, however he’s made 2 huge mistakes this year already and has got extremely lucky both times, Imola and now Baku.

  • Not exactly a fan of mercedes but this team is really classy and no one can rly change my mind

  • Shouldn't have been what benefits each drive in quali it should be what benefits the team, and that would have been both drivers giving each other a tow, with the team knowing the poor pace of the car without it. Could have had both cars up front for race start and defended better against red bull... pretty poor

  • "we have a set of rules" Rule 1- Hamilton rules Rule 2 - Lewis rules in case Hamilton hasn't ruled Rule 3 - Valtteri doesn't rule Rule 4 - Bottas doesn't rule Rule 5 - Whatever Bottas wants he will get if approved by Hamilton. Rule 6 - If parts are suspected of having a bad performance, they are installed on Bottas' car. Rule 7 - New parts always on Hamilton's car.

  • No one wants to hear rants u just lost to red bull and that's what everyone wants😆😆

  • i genuinely like this team, go get'em

  • You did a great job Mike (at a difficult time for the team) - well done.
