It is my solemn duty to announce the demise of another Mercedes engine yesterday.

Kimi Raikkonen finally got back to work after 102 days outside the c#ckpit of his McLaren, but the Finn and his team did not enjoy a very good day, finishing at the bottom of the times. Raikkonen, who spent a long time in this pits while his mechanics worked on the new MP4-21, covered 65 laps on his way to the 12th quickest time of the day. His teammate Pedro de la Rosa, meanwhile, was slowest in the MP4-20 after his Mercedes engine let go early in the session.

I have to continue my profoundly depressing duty.

Another Mercedes engine was sacrificed today.

Juan Pablo Montoya did not bring out a red flag but he suffered more engine woes as a Mercedes-Benz failure cost him four hours of running.
February 4
In today's session Juan Pablo continued to work on achieving longer runs and putting good mileage on MP4-21. In the morning, Juan Pablo completed two runs of 26 laps. On his third long run of the day, his engine failed and Juan Pablo stopped out on track. The test team replaced the engine, however just before Juan Pablo was due to go back out on track, an issue with the hydraulics system was identified.

However it was not all good news for McLaren as the new V8 engine blew up right at the end of the day.
February 15
Kimi Raikkonen wasn't testing the MP4-21 for long. After having completed only 21 laps his Mercedes engine failed on him. His team mate Juan Pablo Montoya had less problems. He covered 79 laps today as he focussed on the long runs in the MP4-21.

that was the official line

obviously they would not "proudly inform" the press that they had another blowup...

or is it that the "most advanced " team takes more than a day to fix an "OIL PRESSURE PROBLEM"

Can Moantoya walk and breathe at the same time? :unsure:

It must take him perilously close to brain overload, even if he can.

Research done.

From.....well, there's a thing.......totalf1.com

During the latter run, the Spaniard stopped on track as his MP4-21 had sustained a problem with the oil pressure.

Hmm.

Oil.

What bit uses oil.

Tricky, this.
