Toto Wolff has warned against taking the upcoming Azerbaijan Grand Prix in Baku for granted after Mercedes recorded a dominant one-two finish in Canadalast weekend (11 June).

The Mercedes team came into the Canadian race with uncertainty surrounding the performance of their car owing to their struggles at the Monaco Grand Prix where the best placed Silver Arrows car was Valtteri Bottas in fourth, while Lewis Hamilton could only manage seventh place after starting the race in 13th place.

Toto Wolff urges Lewis Hamilton to stop whining ahead of F 1 title battle with Nico Rosberg. "It's like a volcano about to erupt between the two of them with the two very different personalities," said Wolff . "In the last couple of races we've had a serene atmosphere in the team that was really amazing.

Wolff revealed that the team worked flat out after the disappointment of Monaco to rectify the issues and all the departments came together to analyse the data as they left no stone unturned to identify the problems. But while they seem to have addressed the issues at the Canadian Grand Prix, the Mercedes chief indicated that all the problems are not yet solved and urged his team to remain cautious ahead of the race in Baku on Sunday (25 June).

"After Monaco we pretty quickly understood why the Sunday was as it was. But we also needed to understand the Friday and Saturday - and that was a bit more tricky. So a group of engineers came together to calmly assess what happened," Wolff told Formula One's official site.

"Since Monaco there was light in the factory 24/7, the simulator was 24/7 ten days in a row. There is no golden bullet in this sport - it is all about analysing the data and drawing the right conclusions from it. No stone was left unturned: aero, mechanical balance, set-up work, the tyres themselves; and the way the drivers drove the car. Everything!

"Monaco looked pretty grim, but we didn't dive into depression – and Montreal now looks pretty great – but I would not say right now that all problems are solved. We understand the situation much better – and this means another valuable set of data points – but now we have to move to Baku," the Mercedes motorsport boss added.

Hamilton cautious on Mercedes' 'rollercoaster' form .
Lewis Hamilton says his rollercoaster start to 2017 has left him unable to predict Mercedes uneven form going into the next races. The three-time champion has endured an up and down start to the season, taking three victories but losing points in his title fight with Sebastian Vettel after poor outings in Russia and Monaco. Victory at the Canadian Grand Prix leaves Hamilton 12-points adrift of Vettel, however, with Baku the next round in the championship, Hamilton – who struggled there last year – admits he is cautious on Mercedes’ prospects but is confident the team can turn a corner with consistent performances. “Obviously we’ve had a great weekend, but I can’t really predict what’s going to happen,” he said. “We’re going to go to another race – Baku is very smooth, a bit like Russia. “For us, personally getting the car where we need it every weekend is definitely a challenge. But I think we’ve learned a lot from Monaco, I think we’ve learned a lot [from Canada]. “If we acquire the same diligence that we did in the past two weeks after every single race, even when we win, I’m pretty sure that we can continue to fight, and maybe not make the rollercoaster ride so up and down.” The 32-year-old praised his team’s turnaround in Montreal from Monaco, linking it to the 2015 Singapore Grand Prix – where Mercedes was oddly off the pace in its worst weekend during its three-year dominance of the sport.
