Peace, joy, eggs: Toto Wolff and Maurizio Arrivabene have no stench

(cafetheology.org) – Mercedes-Sportchef Toto Wolff has rejected allegations that his team would have wanted to surrender with the surprising introduction of a new version of the V6 hybrid drive at the Belgian Grand Prix of the amendment to the oil regulations. As the Austrian explained in the Italian race, the matter had been "inflated with extreme exaggeration" in the media. He emphasizes: "The reason was that we wanted to have more power on the track," Wolff says. In the end, there was just as much as a gentleman's agreement with Ferrari to wait for the debut of the specification of 3.1 a week, even though other media from a meeting of the Mercedes-driver Andy Cowell with his red opponent Mattia Binotto in Spa-Francorchamps report. The Italians also appease in the matter also: "There is no quarrel and we do not want to comment on such things ", dismisses Ferrari team manager Maurizio Arrivabene. But he can not deny that Mercedes has succeeded in consuming another 1.2 liters of oil per 100 kilometers, while the Scuderia will be limited to 0.9 liters after its next update. Because contrary to the first assumptions the amendment from Monza is not invariably for all engines.Ferrari update comes probably in Malaysia. However, he considers the fact irrelevant and suggests that Mercedes would trade under the two limits at the Oldurst: "Whoever asks the FIA ​​will be amazed at the results." In addition, the silver arrows have suffered drawbacks in order to be able to issue the revised specification in Belgium and not just as planned in Japan. Finally, Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas are not allowed to change the V6 until the end of the season, so that the engineers practically hands are tied.Ergo also increases the risk associated with a defect. Each additional update becomes the Vabanque game. Mercedes will also have to wind up more mileage on its fourth component, after all, the final stage will be nine races (including Belgium). "It took us further development time," notes Wolff. "The longer you wait with the last drive, the more you can get with the update." So, Ferrari has more to say, according to information from 'cafetheology.org', the Italians will be delivering their final design stage to the next race in Malaysia – assuming there are reliability tests. As rumored, a saturate performance would be waving. Arrivabene wants to beat the competition and take advantage of what Wolff himself has said: "Mercedes brought an early engine, which is a disadvantage, because there will be no development for the rest of the season." Ferrari is also suspicious of the adjustment of the oil regulations, but in a complementary way to Mercedes. The Scuderia is supposed to bring their update so late, because you want to drive as long as possible with a motor, which can consume 1.2 liters per 100 km. But Arrivabene says, "It's nothing to do with it, we had a plan at the beginning of the year and we want to get the drive train number four at the right time and with the right power, which is the answer. "

The Mercedes customers have to wait for the update

Statements from expert circles point in a similar direction. That is, performance gains in the range of five horsepower would only be achieved in qualifying and through the use of a liquefied oil – not by additional consumption. The Mercedes customers Williams and Force India in Singapore each receive one of the revised combustion engines of the specification 3.1, but could initially do without the low-power-laden course. Ferrari can no longer upgrade its partner Haas after the Americans are already using the fourth engine in both cars. In 2018, the issue of oil will finally have settled. As 'auto motor und sport' reports, the FIA ​​is planning a new sensor system for a more precise determination of the consumption of a maximum of 0.6 liters per 100 km. Only one species per weekend is allowed, which prevents the trickery in the qualification.
