F1: There may be a problem with Mercedes’ new engine


Although Formula 1 teams may not be able to modify their cars in many places compared to the 2020 season, work and improvements have not stopped during the winter break either. Mercedes is also preparing a new resource for this season, but the team says there have been problems. Hywel Thomas, who is responsible for the engines of the defending champions, spoke more about this.

“We know we have problems, but we have a lot of plans to solve them all. I’m sure we’ll be ready for the first race, ”the expert stated in a video. What makes Mercedes difficult, however, is that their resources can only spend a limited amount of time on the test bench, as the rules already cover this area.

“That means every bench test counts and we need to make sure we’re productive and learn something about engine performance and reliability every hour. In addition, this is the first winter where we are preparing to develop the engine only once a year, ”said Thomas.

Mercedes communicated similarly last winter: rivals and the Formula 1 community believed their resources were problematic and did not go well. In the end, they won both championship titles with a greater advantage than in previous years.
