McLaren plays down 2021 Mercedes engine ‘issues’

McLaren has played down reports that its new supplier Mercedes is struggling with “issues” related to its 2021 engine. In material distributed by Mercedes itself, the reigning world champion outfit’s engine boss Hywel Thomas revealed the problems but said there are “plenty of plans in place to fix all of those issues”. McLaren, the British team that revealed its 2021 car on Monday, has switched from Renault to Mercedes customer power over the winter. McLaren team boss Andreas Seidl, meanwhile, explained that the total absence of any Mercedes branding on the 2021 car is simply so that “we focus on ourselves”. However, he insisted that McLaren has “confidence” that it will receive full support as Mercedes’ newest customer.
