Lewis Hamilton has spoken about a possible power unit change at this weekend’s Turkish GP.

Why it matters: The Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff has said earlier this week that there is a “possibility” that the Briton will have a new engine.


  • Hamilton believes that he will not have an engine change at Istanbul, but admits that it can happen.
  • The Briton insists that he and Mercedes should concentrate on their own performance.

What he had to say:

  • “At the moment, I still have [power unit] number two and three. I don’t envision us having to take one at the moment, but that could change.”
  • At the end of the day, I can’t control what they [Red Bull Racing] are doing. It’s more important to focus on ourselves, try to get the best out of that and score as many points as possible every single weekend. That’s of course what we’ll try to do again here.”
