Capito plays down illegal Mercedes engine reports

Jost Capito has played down reports that Mercedes’ latest engines have provided a controversial power boost amid the intense title battle with Red Bull. Red Bull team figures have questioned the legality of a supposed intercooler tweak that means Max Verstappen’s Honda engine is significantly down on power in comparison with Lewis Hamilton’s Mercedes. But Capito, the boss at Mercedes engine customer Williams, doubts that. “According to the regulations, Mercedes has to supply all teams with the same engines,” he told RTL. “We are very satisfied with the Mercedes engines – there is no question about that,” he insisted. “It’s a very good engine, if not the best in Formula 1.”.
