Hamilton not commenting on engine penalty rumour

Lewis Hamilton admitted Mercedes was grappling with bigger problems when rumours of a likely engine change and grid penalty were swirling in the Interlagos paddock. “The engine isn’t even here,” said the seven time world champion. You can’t just hire new ones,” a source at Formula 1 said. Mexico GP and championship leader Max Verstappen said there wasn’t enough time after his latest win last Sunday for a real celebration. He also didn’t want to hear from those crunching the numbers to work out if another win on Sunday would mean the first ‘match point’ in his battle against Lewis Hamilton. “I didn’t ask him for advice because I don’t need it, but I had a great time with his family,” he said. “Outside of racing I don’t like to talk about work much, but I can say that Nelson has a dream garage full of incredible cars.
