Canadian Grand Prix: Mercedes delay new engine over ‘quality issues’

Canadian Grand Prix: Mercedes delay new engine over ‘quality issues’

Notably, Mr. Hamilton performs well at the Canadian Grand Prix having won it 6X, and 1 more win and he will match Michael Schumacher's wins record there.

Pirelli's use of the hyper-soft tires will definitely be a talking point, as even at the Circuit de Monaco, the least power-needy circuit in F1, teams were hesitant to use the Pink-striped tire.

Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel, of Germany, waits as mechanics work on his auto during the second practice session at the Canadian Grand Prix, Friday, June 8, 2018, in Montreal.

Mercedes' decision affects all of its teams and drivers, so in addition to factory drivers Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas, Force India's Sergio Perez and Esteban Ocon and Williams' Lance Stroll and Sergey Sirotkin will also stick with the engines they have been using since the start of the season.

Online ridicule ensued, with people responding to the tweet with images of Mercedes-Benz race cars under the Ferrari logo and other Internet memes making fun of the company.

Certainly all the ingredients are in place for another thrilling Sunday afternoon as Hamilton, Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel and Ricciardo bring their battle to Montreal. Naturally it's degraded, you lose horsepower over races.

"This was one that got away and it's a bitter pill for us all to swallow", Wolff said.

The fossilised footprints were discovered by a team of scientists studying trackways and burrows in China. But what they can say, with reasonable certainty, is that the tracks probably belong to a bilaterian.

Newey suggested that Renault would gain only around one-tenth of a second per lap on a power-hungry track that suits Mercedes, but Wolff warned "past performances are no guarantee of success this year".

It will be a big weekend at the track, which is celebrating the 40th anniversary of the event's move to the island circuit across from downtown Montreal.

"But a quality issue means that his has now been delayed by one race".

"We still have work to do", Vettel said.

Southern Ontario last hosted the Grand Prix in 1977, when Bowmanville Ontario's Mosport Park was the site for the F1 auto race. "As a team we're not where we want to be". It's a long year.

"I'm looking forward to Canada, it's going to be a good race". "Hopefully, we can turn things around and pick up more points".
