Mattia Binotto, Ferrari Team Principal, admitted that the Scuderia has doubts about the Mercedes’ engine. However, it did not speak with the FIA about that. 

Why it matters: Red Bull and Ferrari believe that Mercedes found a way to improve the performance of its engine, and they believe that how the Silver Arrows are doing it is illegal.

Details: 

  • Mercedes seems to have found a way for cooling compressed air to 10 degrees below air temperature. That means they can produce more horsepower.

We had some doubts and discussed it with Red Bull. I personally talked to Horner about it, but we didn’t submit any questions for clarification to the FIA.

I am an Italian guy. I love Motorsport because of the emotions that it gives me and I grew up watching races. That's what I love!
