The great dominator of the 2020 season was the team Mercedes. From the hand of an intractable Lewis Hamilton, and with the help of Valtteri Bottas, the Germans achieved their seventh World Constructors ‘title and also added the Drivers’ title. However, in the last few hours, one of the most important mechanics detailed that there are “some problems” with the engine of the 2021 season.
Regulatory changes to bring more spectacle to Formula 1 racing were postponed. In the first instance they were going to be introduced this year, but the arrival of the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) made it impossible. That’s why this year only a few minor changes to the aerodynamics were allowed, which slowed down the pace of the cars.
However, the power units for this year cannot be modified. According to the regulations, some improvements can be made to the engine, but they must be before the first race and will remain until the end of the season. The only one who had to make large-scale modifications (allowed by the FIA) it was Mclaren, since they will have new engines, coming from Mercedes.
The Mercedes team published a video this Friday in which it details how it is preparing the 2021 season. In these images you hear the word of the engineer in charge of the team’s engines, Hywel thomas. According to Thomas, the preparation for a new championship had some setbacks, although they hope to have everything solved for the tests in Bahrain.
“On our preparation, right now we are building a lot of engines for the new season. We have some problems. We know that we have many engines for the new season. We have some problems. We know we have problems, but we already have many plans in place to solve them all. I’m sure everything will be ready for the first race, ”said Thomas.
