Mercedes F1 Solves Porpoising Issues But Faces A New Problem

After complaining much about it, the Mercedes F1 team claims to have already solved the porpoising issues in its cars. The statement came after the encouraging win of the group at the Canadian Grand Prix last weekend. As a recap, Formula One defines the term “porpoising” as when an F1 car bounces up and down – a phenomenon caused by an increase, then a sudden decrease, of downforce.
