Title battle hurting Mercedes engines says Marko

Mercedes is grappling with new engine problems as a direct result of the epic title scrap with Red Bull. That is the claim of Red Bull’s top official Dr Helmut Marko, amid reports Lewis Hamilton could go tumbling down the Turkish GP grid order due to an unscheduled engine change. Marko thinks Mercedes has been caught out with engine issues in 2021 due to the close and intense battle for the world championship. “They accelerated in the first few laps and then turned the engines down. Red Bull sources report that Mercedes’ specific problem is the crankshaft and valve seats, compromising horsepower when engine mileage starts to build up. He admitted that an imminent engine change for Hamilton is “possible”.
