Oops so it appears, an annoyed and impetuous Seb inching nearside but if Lec was 100% on the ball he would have flicked 2% to the left and they would both continue.

I can't see them just turning the engine down for these races and the high altitude excuse may be wearing a bit thin.

It could also be that they are conserving the engines to make it to the end without penalty. While watching the race, I was wondering why Bottas was pushing so hard and following so closely when it's terrible for temperatures. Then his motor went. No surprise there.

With Bottas pushing so hard to maximum for that 1 point then lunching the engine I doubt if they are conserving anything and simply Ham has the better engine,seemingly always.

Would be great for MAX and RB to finish the season with another victory
Meanwhile the Merc engine from Bottas returned to the engine factory in Brixworth ..
A grid penalty for Bottas it is very likely....

There is no reason for the Merc's to even try. Might as well let the slower cars have some fun. 😂

That's a funny excuse because the Merc's became the slower cars .
What we saw in the last 2 races is the result from a fight with equal weapons ! Thanks to FIA .....

And I really hope they dig to the bottom of the cheating pit !

It has been stated in a couple articles, Merc had moved most of their resources to next season's car after they realized championships where all but locked up after Belgium GP. Their upgrades have been few and far between since the break.

You mean like the US gp where Mercs dominated with a 1/2??

It takes more than a strong PU to win a race. Ferrari knows all about that. As you seen to forget, an others point out Mercs haven't had any upgrades since Belgium. They can win without having the strongest PU. They will keep their developments for next year. They have no reason to show their hand until then. So might as well let the slower cars think they've caught up and next year will be the real test of pace.

Yeah just like with the engine from Bottas in Brazil ...
Perhaps you think RB HONDA is going in hibernation ?

Atleast his engine made it further without taking engine penalties than the Hondas.

We won't know where all teams stand, but Honda has release their upgraded engines and had more upgrades this year and Merc hasn't had to. As mentioned previously Merc also has more time to spend on developing next years car. So we really won't know where things stand until next year.
