New engines for Mercedes and its customer teams

The new season is about to start and not for every team without a fight. For example, the new Mercedes engine had some reliability problems with the MGU-H during the first tests.

Problems during tests

Mercedes had engine problems during the two test weeks. Not only the factory team had problems with it, but also the customer teams Racing Point and Williams. So now all three teams will appear with new engines at the start in Austria.

New specification

"We have a different specification engine than Melbourne, because we've made reliability updates since then", says a Mercedes spokesperson to Autosport.

"They are the product of the time we've been able to work since Melbourne, minus the closure, and hope that they keep us on track for this busy opening phase of the season."
