Interesting, so not a new engine but just a more powerful mapping, if I'm understanding it correctly?
I think mercedes said the engine can be cranked up to higher output as they dont need to save the engine for as much races. So theory is give bottas new engine, so he can steam-through from 6-7th place.
It all depends if Jeddah has good overtaking possibilities i think. But i be surprised if Bottas doesn't as the new power give him a boost to pass. Everyone thought Losil be bad for passing but as perez showed if you have a car advantage u can pass.
Crank it up. Get the 1-2, then it doesn’t matter if it blows in Abu dhabi as constructors would be secure
Wouldn't it be funny if mercedes both drivers took new engines in both races and crank there engines up to MAX as they dont need to save them and get such a straight line advantage they just zoom past everyone LOL
ALl we hear then would be RB arguing that mercedes abused the 5 grid drop rule and Lewis didnt win the championship mercedes stole it with the silly FIA rule
I remember 2 years ago someone commenting from mercedes that YES they can crank up the engine for a race and they would have such advantage that they know nobody be able to keep up, But they cannot as the engine needs to last. if they had one engine to last a race like the old days mercedes be milesss ahead
