Mercedes boss Toto Wolff says that the squad must stay focused in order to ensure that it is not eclipsed by rivals across the remainder of the 2015 campaign.
Mercedes holds a comfortable lead in the Constructors' championship but was unable to take victory in Hungary after being usurped at the start by Ferrari, the second time this year that Mercedes has missed out on top spot.
Formula 1 reconvenes in Belgium this weekend, where last year Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg collided on the second lap of the race.
"With 10 races down and nine to go, we enter the second half of the season with a stronger points total than at this stage last year," he said.
"And yet, our margin to the competition is actually smaller. There is never a moment you can take your foot off the gas and Hungary proved once again that any slip is an opportunity our rivals will grab with both hands.
"We have all enjoyed a chance to recharge over the summer - but we have also kept our minds focused on what lies ahead.
"There are still many chances to win or lose this battle and we must be relentless in our push to come out on top."
