Lewis Hamilton could face ANOTHER grid penalty this season as Mercedes chief Toto Wolff insists it might be worth taking a fresh engine due to their ‘gremlins’… despite tense world title battle with Max Verstappen

Hamilton’s new ICE in Turkey was his fourth of the season – which is one more than permitted in the sport’s regulations. The Austrian team principal said: ‘We had to do it (the engine component change). Grid penalties could be crucial in the outcome of this year’s championship battle between Hamilton and Verstappen. After the Turkish Grand Prix, Hamilton said that he ‘didn’t give any energy’ to concerns over the reliability of his Mercedes engine. We still have engine two, and I think engine three is still there.
