Mercedes delay engine upgrade due to 'quality issue'

Mercedes delay engine upgrade due to 'quality issue'

"Although we had hoped to introduce PU2 [power unit two] this weekend, a quality issue means that this has now been delayed by one race", a team spokesperson said.

Mercedes, Ferrari and Red Bull have each won two races this season.

Mercedes engines are used not only by the factory race team, but also by the Force India and Williams teams.

Asked about Ferrari's engine upgrade for Canada, which debuted in the back of the Haas and Sauber in Monaco, Vettel added: "It's always been the plan, so let's see".

"I've never driven the circuit in Montreal so I'm looking forward to driving there", said the Russian.

Haas driver Kevin Magnussen, of Denmark, comes through the hairpin during the first practice session at the Canadian Grand Prix auto race Friday, June 8, 2018, in Montreal.

"It's a great track and a real test for the driver and the vehicle".

Despite a poor weekend in Monaco, Haas is bringing a significant upgrade for this weekend and with the updated Ferrari engine will likely be a threat once again.

But others have also found the track to their liking including two of Hamilton's biggest challengers.

Ferrari is apparently preparing for this weekend's Canadian Grand Prix, which is in Montreal, by having no idea where or what Montreal is.

Both Toro Rosso drivers, Pierre Gasly and Brendon Hartley, will have an upgraded Honda engine.

Sauber and Williams will continue to linger towards the back but have shown they can get drivers on the fringes of the top 10 when running well.

"It is of course Lance's home race, and also where he scored his first Formula 1 points previous year in his rookie season, so it holds good memories".

That is your look ahead to the possible stories to follow this weekend in Canada.

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.

Bottas played down the delay to the new engine, saying it would have been only "a small gain compared to the old one" anyway.

The team's struggles with the "hyper-soft" tyre in Monte Carlo undermined them in qualifying, but their strategic approach enabled Hamilton to finish third and extend his record run of points-scoring races to 31.
