But what is happening to Mercedes engines? George Russell also uses a new power unit that was fitted to his FW43B overnight, after the replacement was done by Sebastian Vettel’s Aston Martin. The two drivers will have a new unit for which on Sunday they will be forced to start at the bottom of the starting grid.
The new Mercedes engine is mounted on the single-seaters of the customer teams after the official team has already taken steps to unmark the extra engines: Valtteri Bottas has already reached the fifth after the reliability problem that emerged in the fourth just punched at the Italian GP, while Lewis Hamilton was equipped with the fourth internal combustion engine, having spared the previous hybrid system.
It is all too evident that in Brixworth they are struggling with a problem related to the power units, but rumors say that the replacements can only take place gradually because the procurement of fresh engines is more complicated than expected because in the plans at the beginning of the year they were not so many rotations expected. Who will be the next?
