Marko not as worried about Hamilton’s rocket engine

Dr Helmut Marko doubts Lewis Hamilton will get such a benefit from his “rocket” engine in Saudi Arabia next weekend. Dubbed a “rocket” by Red Bull’s Marko, Mercedes sidelined the power unit in Qatar. “This is due to the fact that after more stringent tests by the FIA, Mercedes could no longer use its extremely flexible rear wing,” Marko claims. “Mercedes will use the rocket engine in Saudi Arabia again, but because they can no longer lower the wing, it will no longer bring the 0.4 seconds advantage.”. Jeddah street circuit designer Hermann Tilke also doubts the very long straight in Saudi Arabia will give Mercedes a clear advantage.
