On tests in Barcelona team Mercedes is running with limited engine power, in order to be fully confident in the reliability, reports Sky Sports.
It is not known whether the reason for this decision possible failures of components of the engine during testing on a dynamometer stands on the base. But a source within the team confirmed that on the bench the motors are working at the limit, because in case of breakage, the team has all necessary resources to correct, which is not on the track.
Mercedes will introduce a completely upgraded engine in the first race of the season in Australia, which will be held from 24 to 26 March. Impressive considering the lap times in the performance of Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas now, we can expect an even greater speed increase.
