Mercedes claim that with the power plant on the car of Lewis Hamilton there is no problem, despite the fact that at the final stage of the Grand Prix of Japan, the British complained about excessive engine vibration.
Recall that due to the victory at Suzuka and a descent of Sebastian Vettel, Hamilton managed to extend the lead from the German in the overall standings of the season-2017 to 59 points.
“We did not notice any engine problems, – quotes AUTOSPORT.com the head of Mercedes Motorsport Toto Wolff. – We have studied all the telemetry. We need to understand what is meant Lewis.
I guess when Lewis is leading the race and his main rival in the world Cup already out of the running, he can hear some things. The same applies to engineers on the bridge and the mechanics – in such moments we all want to race as soon as possible”.
Hamilton added: “Honestly, I don’t think that the engine is something wrong. I just wanted to draw the attention of the team on some things, because after the race I was able to forget about them.
When you pull switches, turbines sometimes make weird noises and vibrate. I hope that motor is nothing serious.”
