Russell: Mercedes will gain ‘big margin' with new restrictions

George Russell believes Mercedes will receive an advantage following the introduction of the new engine technical directive at this weekend's Formula 1 Italian Grand Prix, rather than be hurt by the updated rules. Power units manufacturers are not permitted to run a ‘party mode’ throughout the weekend, which is primarily used in qualifying on a Saturday. Mercedes has held a power unit advantage so far in 2020 with Williams and Racing Point using engines from the German manufacturer as well as the factory team. Russell reckons Mercedes' customer teams will lose out more in qualifying but is optimistic that in race trim the new directive will help its prospect. Related Posts...
