Okay. If Hamilton wins and get 6th WDC in Maxico, then we have 3 races left. Is it feasible for Mercedes to bring new engine/power unit to get grid penalty? So, they can start working and improving their engine in 2020? I may wrong here. can some one please clarify is the possible.

It's possible but I doubt it. The effort that will go into deploying all that will probably be better used in working on next year's and 2021 stuff. What i mean is that yes they will obviously be working on the next years' cars but bringing it to the races will possibly be a bit extra work with risk of showing hand too early to others. From my speaking with friends at Merc that's what I feel. It'll probably be very small hard to see stuff but i doubt it'll be major. Could be wrong though.

They could already have something planned for the post season test in Abu Dhabi, and possibly move it forward to a race if the opportunity arose. But like someone else said, their time and effort would probably be better spent focusing on getting it better for pre season 2020 tests (which are 2 days shorter)

Strangely none of the teams ever seem to have taken new engines in the last few races, even in years when the championship was long decided and there could possibly have been an advantage. Gentleman's agreement?

not just a gentleman's agreement, the rule comes from the teams themselves.

They still want to win races and score as high as possible in the wcc and taking engines leads to penalties so.....

An FIA inspection of Ferrari’s power unit may have debunked one theory about how the team achieves its remarkable engine performance, @DieterRencken reports in the final instalment of his Mexican Grand Prix Paddock Diary.

At 1:14, a mechanic is adding a cold liquid to an inlet at the rear of the car. Does anyone know what the substance is and where it's being added to?
