(cafetheology.org) – Mercedes is against Ferrari in the development race: while the Italians have brought an extensive aerodynamic update to the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps, Brackley has an engine upgrade. Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas will be able to take advantage of additional horse rides before the two power-heavy tracks Spa and Monza. Mercedes has so far made a secret – only the official FIA list shows that Silver has installed new components. It is the fourth, and therefore the last allowed, specimen of internal combustion engine, turbocharger and MGU-H. Four of these components may be blocked by a team this season, without a penalty. The now installed parts are the latest version of the Mercedes drive unit, which is already a benchmark. Mercedes has to keep up with the last season with these and the parts already used. "We can be more confident here than on routes such as Budapest. We have seen that Ferrari is very strong on tracks that require a lot of downforce." Nevertheless, the Finn does not want to let the favorites roll down, just like Toto Wolff and Sebastian Vettel: "They were not really weak on any track, so we do not have the feeling to be the favorites, but we should be quite good, therefore I'm expecting a close fight. "Ferrari, on the other hand, is stuck with his previous build-up. For the one-week Grand Prix of Italy – the fastest race of the year – a dismantling stage could be announced. With red, the focus in Belgium is on a large aerodynamic and mechanical update on the SF70H.
